Hi Reid....


Hey Reid! You buying a house also? This looks like an interesting meal here. I look forward to hearing more about it!


Hi Reid, I think I know what you mean by 'hit and miss' :) The red bean honey toast looks interesting, was that really huge?


Hi Reid - That's a pretty hefty lunch.


The restaurant is kind of neat and the food looks great.



Just stopped by to say HI?

Hi Jo,

Buying a house? Here in Hawaii? Fat chance. I hope you're enjoying yours! =)

Hi Keiko,

The honey toast was huge. It was enough for two people actually. I'm glad that I had some help with it! =)

Hi Kirk,

It is hefty, but the daikon salad and the dessert were split with someone. I wouldn't dare eat all of that myself!

Hi Jane,

Welcome to the blog.

The restaurant is tastefully done and has clean lines and a retro-modern design. The food, when good, is really good!


Hi Reid. So glad you're back. Sounds like you had a great time in London.
Just wanted to give a word of advice for patrons of Shokudo. We've been there a few times and enjoyed some dishes more than others. However, our last visit was in September. I charged the bill and actually kept the receipt (doesn't always work that way). When I received my credit card statement, I was charged $50 more. Upon calling the restaurant, they didn't seem too surprised. The manager said it was the practice of the "bank" to charge more than the bill to ensure payment of the tip. However, this was $50 OVER the bill and tip amount. The manager looked into and called back, apologized, saying I was overcharged and would receive a credit. Just wanted to warn others to keep an eye out, as I would have easily overlooked this and paid the extra $50.
Thanks for all the info. You are truly amazing.

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
