Nishiki @ Kota Kinabalu (II)

Hey, do you know that Nishiki is also a very famous 400 year-old market in Kyoto? I was surfing the net looking up places of interest in Kyoto, hopefully if all goes well, we'd be walking along this market come November. Keeping my fingers crossed!
Anyway, back to KK's Nishiki, we had dinner here with KT and KH the last night of their stay in KK. They already had Sabah seafood for the past few days so let them have Japanese seafood for a change.

The only reason for coming to Nishiki....

Leanne's sole reason for going into any Japanese restaurant...

Something to go with the sake...

more for the sake...

Lucky us the wagyu promotion was on...yumzz..

The most disappointing dish of the evening...my goreng pisang has crispier batter :p

This was like homemade, coarse texture but very rich with a strong green tea flavor and not overly sweet. I like it.
KT picked up the tab but he said Citibank paid for this lovely meal, thank you.

terri, let's hope u won't hop on the leaving train too...tis year has been really hard, isn't it? At least Yi will be home, will she b here for x'mas?

denise, no, not for these shots. I don't like to as most food shots with flash always turn out.. blah and flat. But with dim lights like these in Nishiki u need a fast lens and high ISO to be able to do w/o flash.
How 's the new toy? just take lots n lots of pics and hv fun...
