Moon Thai & Japanese Restaurant is very close to where I live. For some reason we had not been there in years, too busy exploring other places, so on a rainy Saturday afternoon, we decided to have lunch in one of our old haunts. The décor was the same, pretty as always – modern, colorful with […]

Shokudo By World Resources Café in Miami
