For all beef lovers, you've just got to try authentic kobe beef at least once in your life for that O.M.G. moment. You do not need strong gums as the meat literally melts in your mouth. No need for whatsoever seasoning, just grilled it gently for half a minute on each side and in goes into your mouth for an explosion of flavours. I will gladly let the fats grease my lips once again for this mouthwatering experience!

Many thanks to Mark Wiens of @migrationology for this out-of-this-world recommendation.

Exclusive to Starbucks Japan, this range of pudding especially the Matcha (¥320) one was absolutely divine for its matcha flavour, wobbly soft texture and a surprise at the bottom, which is a thick matcha sauce that provides a good contrast of bitter and sweet.

I don't know if it's magic or pure love that they put into making these. Comes in a plate of 6, these translucent jellies are coated with soybean powder and every order comes with a side of brown sugar syrup, made in-house, for pouring enthusiasts to attempt this pouring shot. Everything is just right about this plate, from the consistency of the jellies, to the nuttiness from the soybean and finally the sweetness punch from the syrup. Truly stunning.

Gram Cafe & Pancakes has elevated the simple pancake with their Premium Pancake ($950 JPY) into something magical. With just butter, whipped cream and maple syrup pairing with pancakes, its simplicity at its best.

These balls of fire looked harmless on first glance but never pop one straight into your mouth right after it comes off the grill as it's a piping hot googey texture with a piece of octopus inside. The brown sweet sauce that was brushed onto the takoyaki and the shaved bonito flakes on top added an extra dimension to the snack.

Now that I have tasted it, beef elsewhere will never be the same again. If there's ever a place for a beef pilgrimage, this is it and I highly recommend you make a visit La Shomon for a life-changing experience.

The Akamai 3 shu moriawase (2300 JPY) is an assorted lean cuts of 3 different kinds of Kobe beef. You will get the Rampu (lean and rich in meat flavour), Kurimi (tender part of the shoulder) and Ichibo (aitchbone part that has magnificent marbling but light taste).

Place each cut over the charcoal grill and witness the magic happens. My recommendation will be to go for medium rare doneness and dip it slightly with salt for the ultimate indulgence. The meats were so tender that you do not need strong gums to chew. Flavours were buttery and absolutely mind-blowing. I repeat, beef will never be the same again.

Many thanks for Lauralee for the kind hospitality and Mark Wiens of @migrationology for the awesome recommendation once again.
