[Osaka] Steak Kappo Ada Chi ステーキ割烹あだち - Pickle Buffet and Steak

My friend was so excited to take me to a "pickle buffet" when I visited her in Osaka.

She was so excited. How could I say no even as a non-pickle lover?

The restaurant is a very small, but extremely popular hole in the wall restaurant. We were there right as it opened, so we were obviously very eager, but we didn't have to wait. By the time we finished there was a pretty long line (it was lunchtime).

Since I don't know how to read Japanese, I will just link you to the map location here (ステーキ割烹あだち):
Since she and I are basically middle-aged businessmen, this obviously was the best choice for a weekday lunch. She wanted me to go with her because, my guess is, it would be weird to go to this restaurant alone as a woman.

Let me start by saying. I am not a fan of pickled anything. I can sometimes handle sweet pickles, but salty pickled items are not my #1 choice..or even my #10 choice.

That being said, this was pretty fun. If you want to try a fun Japanese food experience, this is a restaurant not to miss.

Kyoto is pretty famous for pickles and I remember the one time this same friend took me to Kyoto and wanted to show me the pickle stores since they were so famous and give out samples. I vetoed that excursion and now realize she must really like pickles.

There are about 20 different types of pickles you can try. Honestly, I didn't realize there were so many different pickled foods in Japan.

There were some of the obvious ones - cabbage, ginger, daikon radishes, and ume (plums).

Here are some of the other pickles.

Seriously, you can eat whatever and how much you want.

So, in order to partake in the pickle buffet, you need to order the real meal which is steak. The steak is very tender and juicy. There are 3 sizes to choose from - 70 g, 100 g, and 150 g. Each steak meal comes with miso soup, a bowl of rice (free refills), and pickles (free refills).

The value is great, it's less than 1000 JPY for the meal, less than 10 USD.

It really is a businessmen restaurant. As we were eating our meal, the restaurant filled up with all businessmen. There were about 10 seats around the bar.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
