Kaiho Sushi

I actually keep a running list of "to-try" list of restaurants and Kaiho Sushi is one of the names there, although I really cannot remember how it appeared. Hmmm.. anyway, I checked it out of curiosity.

Surprise surprise. The hidden joint is a tiny place, barely seating 20 people at full capacity. I suppose it's just the right size as there is only one sole sushi chef, who is also the owner, Bernard, manning the counter.

I found Chef Bernard strangely familiar and the moment I saw the daikon strips on the sashimi plate, I knew I had seen him in Sushi Yoshida's kitchen and I was right!

I enjoyed the dinner very much, simply because the food was quite a refreshing change for me. I left the menu in the good hands of the Chef, and throughout the night, I was served a good mix of food, between what I call "staples" (such as fresh sashimi moriwase, butter asari clams and aji tempura) and less common dishes (such as braised kinki fish, hamachi carpaccio, and a most interesting appetizer, pickled salmon head!)

Kaiho Sushi would probably make a good place to have a loooong dinner with a friend or two, over a bottle of sake. The atmosphere is nothing to speak of, but the food is competent and the restaurant is just so small and cosy. It is like being in a friend's kitchen, sitting by the counter. Let Chef Bernard surprise you with his omakase menu, but just remember to indicate your budget beforehand, lest the bill surprises you too.

Happen to chance upon your blog. Great recommendations.

Tried this place last weekend and the charishi set was good value. Not as fresh as yoshida but for 28++ you can't get better value.

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at iherb.com.  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!

[Mommy Post] Accidental Booster Alert!

If you are a breastfeeding mommy or pumping mommy, you will understand when you find a milk booster, it's like striking lottery, right?
So my hub has actually been drinking this V-Soy multigrain for quite some time, so it has a regular appearance in our fridge.  I tried it but found it to be too sweet on so I never drank it after.

One fine day, I had a small play date at my place, and I served this drink to the mommies (because all rejected my first beverage of choice - coffee) to them.  One of them reported that she had higher output and that struck up a lot of other mommies' interest to try (including myself!).  Glad to report, it does help me, but not exponentially as I still don't take a lot of it, just a small cup.   What a small cup did for me - I take a shorter time to pump the same volume and at sometimes I do get about 10-15ml more.  I reckon if I do drink a bigger cup of it, it would be even better?  But no, I didn't choose to do that because it is very cal…
