The best breakfast in my life.

When we visited Tsukiji fish market for the first time we wanted to have breakfast there, but long ques at the small restaurants and our poor knowledge of the Japanese language removed that idea from our mind.

But we’re so lucky as to have met our friends from Cafemiffy who took us for breakfast this Christmas. They took me and Father bunny to a very special restaurant in a rainy and misty day (much better than a sunny day for this experience).

A small restaurant, only a bar, and behind it two sushi master using their knifes and the best fish you can imagine and have.

The different flavours, the different textures, the atmosphere, the perfect rice, a nice Japanese tea, the colors… 

If you have the opportunity to go there you’ll be spoiled forever.

Tsukiji fish market (third visit)

In the past (check here) I visited the world´s biggest fish market – Tsukiji- and we managed to enter the red tunna fish auction where only the best tunna is exposed and inspected to professional buyers.

You have to got early and you must be there about 4 am if you want to enter the auction, besides now you have to register in advance or may be the will completely bann visitor from the auction.

So we were lucky on that rainy spring morning when we manage to visit the auction, but if you’re lazy you must paya a visit to the market too, great small restaurants, great fish, and above all – a lively atmosphere- that will surprise you a lot!

 Daikon Horseradish and Japanese “sweet potatoes”
 wasabi “Wasabia japonica”
 More Wasabi “premium one”
 Blacksmith finishing a “small” knife
 Some tunna traders who finished stocks
The market is closed during New Year’s eve, this was the last day

Today we have opened a really big parcel, full of gifts from our Cafemiffy friends. The postman left the parcel to our concierge and by mistake the parcel was sitting in his office for almost a week.

Japanese curry, excellent sake and a marvellous jar for serving and cooling the sake.

A million thanks, Cafemiffy!!!

The rainy season has started in Japan and of course today it’s raining. Miffo and Father Bunny went to Tsukiji market today. After an excellent dinner with Cafemiffy they were enough brave to get up at 4:00 pm an visit the market.

I love Japan, Do I have tell you that before?



Dan has arrived

After an exhilarating journey Dan has arrived from Japan. A noble Japanese family – The Cafemiffy clan– gave us the opportunity and the honours to train his body and soul for some time.

The induction was very formal. Miffa used her Samurai outfit and her sword while Miffo acted as the secretary of the council. Draculina and Draco were present too.

Dan swore loyalty to the Chan clan and Miffa – who overacted a little bit- nominated him as new knight of the clan.

Miffo and FB were too excited to cook sushi, so we ordered a nice Japanese meal from one of the best Japanese restaurants (The bill is still in FB’s mind). We had Sapporo beer and Sake and a nice headache today…

But What Doesn’t Kill You Only Makes You Stronger.

Miffo’s Sushi Bar

Miffo is a certified Japanese cooker. After one year in Tokyo (Japan) she was able to enter into Cafemiffy’s. They taught her a lot of basic techniques and some advanced ones. Miffo’s patience and dedication made her to achieve a great knowledge of basic Japanese cooking.

Today under Miffo’s strict supervision we made some Maki Sushi. (with the best ingredients you can expect – provided by Cafemiffy-)

Still some room to improve. But the overall experience has been superb.
