Travel Eats: Mai Japanese Dining (Tokyo)

The restaurant is Westin Hotel's Japanese restaurant. Our business associate chose the place for convenience but as it turned out, food was very good.  The lunch menu is pretty varied, lots of sets and mini kaiseki courses.

We took the mid-priced course at 5,000 Y per person and the following was what we had:

trio of appetizers - (from left) fried corn mocha cake, creamy tofu with walnut sauce, daikon, white bait and maitake mushroom salad

clear soup with shrimp dumpling and chrysanthemum

seasonal sashimi - tai and ?

grilled wild salmon with yamaimo topping, ginger flower and sweet potato

red rice dumpling filled with pumpkin, seasonal vegetables and drizzled with ankake sauce

rice course - baby baby potatoes pickles and miso asari soup

home made rice mocha with chestnuts and red bean paste

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!
