Lunch date with A san at Konakara, which is a restaurant that specialises in oden in Shin-maru building (こなから 新丸ビル店).
They have this grand set up in the centre.
I ordered their lunch set that came with 4 oden of choice and chicken soboro gohan.
While the daikon was delicious, I made a mistake by ordering the wrong chikuwa. I wanted the yaki chikuwa and not this soft non-chewy one. I have another seafood ball behind the daikon which was also soft and non-chewy.....not exactly a texture that I like.
My last one is this really dense dango which tasted like there's pumpkin in it.
The rice, which I though was the only other delicious item.
My pretty lunch partner
Overall, I prefer the oden at Oden Kashimin (おでん かしみん) at Marunouchi Iiyo that I visited a few months back. (http://melissa1311.blogspot.jp/2016/12/nihombashi-and-marunouchi.html)
Spotted this Xmas trees after lunch
As the weather was lovely that day, I decided to head over to Aoyama Itchome to catch the beautiful yellow leaves from the ginko trees there.
There were sooo many people there as it was a Sunday
So glad I made the trip because the view was absolutely breathtaking.
Yup, one day, I shall return with a special someone.
Even the fallen leaves look beautiful
A super long queue in front of the Shake Shack
After that, I took the train to Yoyogi and managed to catch some Autumn leaves there too :D
