We decided to eat at Sakagura, which was where we were supposed to eat last weekend when my uncle came to visit. Wow, the entire meal was umami heaven. When I was a kid and we learned about 'taste buds', I always knew there was another taste. I always called it the 'meat tastebud'. The Japanese claim to have discovered it, but I in fact discovered it in second grade!
We had the most amazing dinner at Soba Tato. It was a soba and yakitori bar by Grand Central Station. We had plans to go to another restaurant, but we had to change plans when my uncle decided to join us for dinner. I'm glad he joined us, otherwise I wouldn't have enjoyed such a delicious dinner.
On Saturday, we had an engagement party at, Macando, which is a tapas restaurant in the East Village. The food was good, but its hard to figure out how much food to order off a tapas menu so that everyone gets a taste.
