Raw-some Steak Tartare at @cote_nyc! Treat yourself to an upscale Korean BBQ experience at this chic new steakhouse by FOH extraordinaire @simonkimnyc (@pioranyc) in the Flatiron! I highly recommend the Butcher's Feast of select meats but this Korean steak tartare of prime beef featuring prime top round mustard seeds and diced pears is not to be missed as an appetizer!

Worshipping noodles in Kyoto!  Changed it up a bit w/ this seasonal White Clam Ramen in a delicate seafood dashi broth at #MenyaShichifukujin near #Nijocastle. So clean and deliciously refreshing! Apparently they're famous for their tonkotsu and chicken broths. Wish I could stay longer to explore all the amazing ramen here!  #shichifukujinramen #jeaniuseatsjapan

Another must when in Japan is Shabu Shabu!  Found an intimate gem @yamafuku_kyoto in the heart of Kyoto's Gion geisha district where they served this sexy A4 Wagyu beef in a delicious soy milk dashi broth which we then uses for Ramen noodles.  So oshii!  Awesome night reuniting w/ the @kirinusa #JPNinNYC crew last night! #KirinUSAinJPN #jeaniuseatsjapan

You know I'm getting some Karaage while in Japan! Our local friends brought us to this fantastic late-night spot #NikuYochoko in Shibuya where we enjoyed some amazing Japanese fried chicken! Loved the super crispy skin and that meat was so tender! In fact we loved it so much we came back for more the next night.  The best experiences are when you feel so comfortable in a place even though it's thousands of miles away from your home. Hmm...I could seriously live here!  Tokyo!

Must try Tsukemen when in Tokyo!  Another specialty here is dipping ramen where the cold noodles are served separately from the sauce which is more intensely flavored than typical broths. It's more popular obviously during the hot summer and one of the best places to enjoy it is at #TsukemenYasubae w/ various locations throughout the city. Loved this deeply flavorful Spicy Miso Tsukemen w/ boiled charsu and eggs. Their regular and spicy tonkotsu sauces were also good but this was my favorite…

Of course no meal in Tokyo would be complete w/o RAMEN!  This Spicy Yuzu Shoyu Ramen from @afuri_official in Roppongi was one of the best I've ever had! Shoyu or soy sauce broth is a Tokyo speciality and the addition of yuzu and chili added an incredible brightness and boldness to this traditional ramen dish. This is a must-eat in Tokyo....truly amazing!

Happy Korean Thanksgiving!  I'm so grateful to be in Seoul with my mom and aunt's family for Chuseok (#추석) aka Autumn harvest festival. Love this colorful spread of food they prepared for us including Galbi (갈비) Jeon (전 flour & egg battered fried fish meat veggies) colorful Gujeolpan (구절판 medley of proteins & veggies w/ wheat flour pancake) and various banchan (반찬) & kimchi (김치). As much as I enjoy dining out nothing beats food made by and shared with loved ones.
