The Crazy 88

Kill Bill is an awesome movie. And last night I had dinner in a restaurant in Shibuya called Gompachi. Admittedly at first sight these two sentences don't appear to have a lot in common but in fact they do. Gompachi is a chain and one of the other locations is at Nishi-Azabu crossing, halfway between Shibuya and Roppongi in central Tokyo. It's famous for three things:

1 - the food is fantastic, make sure you try the black cod if you go

2 - it was the restaurant that Koizumi took George Bush when he visited Japan many years ago

3 - and finally, it was the inspiration for the battle of the Crazy 88 in Kill Bill

and what better excuse to include Lucy Liu onto my blog....
