Taihei (2)

Posted by Jen Ko at 2:01 PM
Hi everyone,
I haven't uploaded in awhile and since a few months back, my life has taken another dramatic change. J took me to Taihei a few months back for v-day because I was really sad at the time. J came back, and I decided to give our relationship another chance. I suppose I'll post this in a post after this.

I love Taihei, I love yakitori, I love oden!!

Asahi beer for Jake, coke for me. - I still hate the way alcohol tastes, Blehh...

Chicken liver pate - I enjoyed this, but felt like there wasn't enough bread.

Breast with plum sauce

Daikon (oden) - J really like Daikon, but I don't because sometimes it could be bitter if it's not stewed well.

But... Taihei has some really good daikon.

Chicken thigh - it's really good, especially since there's areas of the chicken that's a bit charred. Char is good!
Kobe beef tataki - J and I love beef esp Tataki with ponzu sauce.

Fish cake - This is such a different kind of fish cake, it's very good though. I know Taiwanese fish balls are QQ in texture, but this is much more dense. All i know is that it's very good!!

<span class=DSC_0301">
Pork stomach(?) belly - IT's so good... Pork is delicious, I am trying very hard to get J into pork.
beef tongue - Sometimes I think beef tongue is good but sometimes I just don't get it.
Asparagus wrapped in bacon - We initially ordered 2, but the waitress asked us if we were sure and we remembered that it came like this. The asparagus were huge, and it's one of J's favs.

Shrimp - I love shrimpies, i don't remember this shrimp that much though, but I enjoyed sucking on the head and making loud sounds

I'm too lazy to browse for the name. It's a soft boiled egg filled with ikura in broth. I LOVE soft boiled eggs!!!
Hanpan - it's like a sponge, it's my favorite ALL TIME. My mom used to put it in my soups, i think it's very kid friendly. The sponge sucks up all the oden juices, and it's like an explosion in your mouth... fine a mini explosion.

Try Taihei, i hear some likes and dislikes but I love how you can try so many dishes and I also love how they have both oden and yakitori. :)
