Midnight Munchies Spotlight: Aki-no-no Dishes

WARNING: If you love Japanese food and are looking at this blog at night you will get hungry! Hungry enough to go to Aki-no-no for a snack!

One of my big cravings at night is Japanese food. Sushi, small grilled dishes, and a spot of Japanese beer or sake can really take care of anxious taste buds. I love salty and simple, and then washing it down with something dry and smooth. So it’s no surprise that I can be found often at Aki-no-no. This little gem, across from Puck’s Alley, offers not just one, but multiple midnight munchies for me.

I highly recommend checking it out late night. Added to the tasty dishes (pictured below) is that it has that cozy feeling of a small, authentic sushi bar found in the neighborhood in Japan. The owners of Aki-no-no are also the proud parents of the J-pop star Yuna Ito.

Let the parade of pictures begin!

Always a favorite, unagi nigiri!

Don't take my temaki rolls! They are so delicious.

Fried oysters are fantastic in my mouth!

Tempura pumpkin - tempting aren't they?

Yakisoba, always simple and tasty.

Grilled beef tongue, leaves me speechless every time!

These are baby bok chois (Chinese vegetables), but unfortunately they are NOT bacon-wrapped enoki, which I have no picture of this time, but always order . . .

Btw, I know what you are all thinking that was not a snack, that was enough food for a meal . . . alright, it was a snack meal! DON’T JUDGE ME!

Midnight Munchies Spotlight: Liliha Short Stack

One of my favorite places to grab pancakes in the middle of the night, even though it is totally unhealthy, is Liliha Bakery. This little gem of a diner in the heart of Liliha is the perfect place to hit up after clubbing, karaoke, or playing too much Rockband at your friend’s apartment.

Breakfast at midnight always hits an insomniac's spot.

Best part is that the batter used by Liliha’s staff is consistent. All the times I’ve gone it tastes the same. The pancakes are moist, nice-sized, and fluffy. They stand up to syrup quite nicely and lastly, you can get them fast. If you are craving something sweet, warm, and fluffy grab a short stack, you can be in and out there just as fast as any other fast food joint.

Catch you there in the middle of the night!
