Direk Tonette’s Japanese food adventures
After the successful opening of her latest movie The Achy Breaky Hearts and before helming her upcoming teleserye with Dreamscape, Direk Tonette Jadaone took on Japan and documented her take on the foods she sampled during the trip.
And because she’s a natural storyteller, her natural wit shines through as she shares what she thinks of the various desserts, delicacies and drinks she filled up on that makes her stories come alive for her followers.
She says Japanese shaved ice Strawberry Kakigori is surprisingly sour and more faithful to the strawberry’s natural taste.
Maki at Shibuya made her ask for the Lord’s forgiveness.

She shares her verdict on the famous ramen from Honke Daiichiasahi. We’ll let you read the captions for yourself.
Honke Daiichiasahi (本家 第一旭 たかばし本店), Kyoto, Japan — 5-min walk from Kyoto Station. Pumila kami ng 20 minutes, pero…sorry Mr. Miyagi, hindi kasarapan itong Special Noodles Ramen (850¥)! (Di ko alam bakit special? Paano pag di special? O para ba itong buko pie sa Laguna na you are special, just like every one else?) Parang may masarap pang ramen sa gilid-gilid ng Quiapo o Divisoria, parang kulang sa spices, parang kulang ng pagka-Japan. Wuw, paano, e nasa Japan na nga kami?! O e di kami na ang ramen connoisseur!

Last but not the least, Salmon!
