Yakiniku M Dotonbori

Yakiniku M Dotonbori

Yakiniku M Dotonbori is a grill restaurant that specializes in Matsusaka beef. I know that Kobe beef is very famous in the world. In Japan, the top three beef are Matsusaka, Kobe and Ohmi beef. All of those beef are raised in the Kansai region of Japan. Matsusaka beef is the meat of a Japanese black cattle brought up in certain conditions in the Matsusaka region of Japan. The Matsusaka Yakiniku M Dotonbori restaurants specializes in that kind of beef. Only 2,500 Matsusaka cattles are slaughtered every year that is why the prices are quite high. From our hotel, we took the Osaka Loop and transferred for Namba station at Tennoji because of our JR pass.

Rice Restaurant is one of the three restaurants at Princesa Garden Resort and Spa Palawan. It’s the same restaurant where they serve the complimentary breakfast. They also are open for lunch and dinner. We had a pick out of the three and we decided to try this one first. It serves Filipino and International cuisine. Their hotel website says that they show cultural presentations on occasion outdoor but it was not the case when we were there maybe because it was low season.

Coast Pool Bar

Coast Pool Bar

Coast Pool Bar is a cozy bar by the pool and the beach at South Palms Resort. We mostly had lunch here but we also had dinner once when we thought the main restaurant was a bit noisy. Prices are expensive. We love the colorful tables and chairs strewn around the bar. The decor is really fun and chic. I think they share the same menu with the Oceania restaurant which is the main restaurant of the resort. They are open almost all day except for breakfast serving lunch, dinner and in between drinks or snacks.

Ellis Gourmet Burger Antwerp

Ellis Gourmet Burger Antwerp

 

The restaurant Ellis Gourmet Burger is located at De Keyserlei 21 in Antwerp. It’s the street directly across the Antwerp Central Station where there are a lot of restaurants and shops lined up. They serve burgers. It seems like designer burger places have been popping up around the country. I went here for lunch because I was craving some fluffy American pancakes which I saw that they were advertising. In Belgium, their pancakes are thinner, almost like crepe. They are very good as well. I just suddenly missed the fluffy ones.
