This is so easy to make. Fry tons of garlic (to lessen the guilt from eating aligue or crab fat, maybe) in butter (yes, not olive oil or corn oil) and when the garlic begins to smell (garlicky!), add some shrimps (optional) then the aligue. Cook for a minute or two before adding your rice. Then garnish with strips of fresh basil (optional).
Konnichiwa Saigosan! A new and funky izakaya recently opened at Uptown Mall headed by Chef Chris Oronce. This izakaya not only serves delectable dishes but is also a visual-feast. Inspired by animes, mangas, and JPop culture, Saigosan even has a train wherein you can hop from Kyoto to Osaka without a JR Pass!
