    Phil & Stacy

    California, USA


    Bruce took us out for some fine dining and drinks. It was so much fun, we all met again for breakfast. Stacy got to try "natto" and purchased a custom, left-handed Japanese chef's knife with her initials engraved. Unforgettable!

    Bruce showed us great places in Japan and Hong Kong. From the most humble, Cheung Hing Kee Shanghai Pan-fried Buns to popcorn with powdered truffles and exotic cocktails at the Ozone Bar on the 118th floor of the Ritz-Carlton in Kowloon.

    Our family comes to Japan every year; Hakata is one of our favorite destinations. We count on Bruce to introduce us to great local eateries in Kyushu. He's the best! And he makes us laugh, too.

    I'm on the road constantly for work. When I have time to enjoy fine dining, I contact Bruce for meals in Japan or Korea. Last time, we met in Busan. Bruce turned me on to some very fresh sea eel. In fact, it was still wiggling while we sautéed it at our table. l didn't flinch. That impressed him.
