How Was the Food?
That’s the second question most people have asked about my recent Japan trip. (The first is “Was it crazy expensive?” and the answer, surprisingly, is no.)
In a word, the food was fantastic.
Picnic lunch: Melon bread, peach juice, roasted peanuts, tempura
Our first sushi meal
Our waiter preparing okonimiyake, which is like a really big pancake…with vegetables…topped with mayo and other sauces
It tasted about as good as it looked
After an early-morning trip to the fish market, we had a sushi breakfast
Tastier than a bowl of Cheerios!
Dining on vegetarian Buddhist cuisine in our room at Ekoin, the temple where we stayed while visiting Koya-san
Green tea ice cream
Buying a ramen lunch at the train station. You put your money in, choose what you want, and then present the printed ticket to the staff at the noodle bar. (But first, you find an English-speaking commuter to translate for you!)
When did I become someone who takes pictures of her food?
