Tokyo: Yuzuya Ishinkyo 柚子屋一心居

Yuzuya Ishinkyo is a restaurant serving traditional food, Kyoto-style. The menu was very small -- salads, small dishes, meat, fish and a section on nabe (Japanese claypot), and all in Japanese too.

Once inside the doors, we had to take off our shoes (please remember to wear good socks and easy to take off/put on shoes :P), then, we were led into the main dining area where it was lit with an orangey light and was rather dim.

All the seatings were either by the counter or in a private room. The counter seats were tatami-style, meaning, I had to sit cross-legged throughout dinner so you can imagine I was rather glad to stand up and stretch after dinner! Honestly, the atmosphere was rather austere and I felt I had to be on best behaviour, so it would not have been my top choice dining experience.

We started dinner with a slow-cooked sanma, at its peak during this autumn season. It was good and I waited for the rest of the courses in anticipation.

Next, we had the salad (not pictured). The greens were fresh and cleansed our palate. It was good as well and would have been ordinary if not for the copious amounts of mizuna leaves (a Japanese vegetable) and a light and creamy yuzu dressing.

The spinach and egg tamagoyaki (omlette) was next. This was delicious and definitely the highlight of the dinner. The egg was folded in a typical fashion but the inside remained creamy and soft, but not undercooked. It was savoury and reminded me of a mild cheese flavour.

The friend also ordered a sliced beef and meatball nabe. It had delicious maitake mushrooms and more mizuna tossed in as well.

We rounded up the dinner with an onigiri each. I thought this was rather unique. A rather "gianomous" triangular rice ball was wrapped up with pickled cabbage. That means, each bite of rice was flavoured. Quite clever huh? The first bite revealed some really wet rice. The onigiri could have been freshly steamed. But as I ate on, the moisture also dissippated quite quickly so towards the end, the rice ball was completely devoid of moisture and tasted glutinous, like a mochi (in a good way). Boy, I was completely stuffed after this rice ball. But is it me, or do you agree that Japanese rice just taste so good and addictive? It would have been such a waste if I cannot finish it so I did!

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  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!
