Deep fried Oyster and stir-fried Okinawa bittermelon

After a rather horrific (haha) concert in Tokyo Opera city hall (Tokyo) last week, I needed to take a quick bite before heading home. Due to the very late time of the day, I had to quickly run into just a chain restaurant Ootoya 大戸屋 that serves about anything. Originally I did not expect anything...

But these deep friend oysters were just amazing!!!

The bread crumb was so gently crispy and the oyster inside was so juicy and soft!

I also went to Kawasaki for a rehearsal, and wanted to find a place to eat near the station. And I found a Okinawa restaurant!

The bittermelon is slightly different (perhaps less bitter) than the Chinese ones. The balance of tofu, pork, and bittermelon is just perfect!
