What have we been eating in Japan? I’m a sushi girl, so for the most part I’ve been devouring delicacies like this. I enjoyed this salmon, squid and tuna today during our Hakone visit. The fish is always so fresh and soft that I barely notice its rawness. Although I will admit the eyes on this krill made me pause. Fresh Fish Rice Bowl: Hakone
A lot of times, D and I are with my friends’ co-workers. They’ve taken us to their favorite places. A couple of days ago, we ate at a Thai restaurant. The table was full of everyone’s dishes. We had pan-fried greens, curry crab claws and rice paper rolls.
Rice Paper Rolls: Yokosuka
Aside from the two McD’s meals the girls have had, sometimes when they are with us, we end up eating something that’s a little more Americanized, like this four-cheese pizza. This pie was still a little different because one of the four was blue cheese.
This Bento Box was one of my favorites. Normally, I don’t eat pre-packaged sushi, but for some reason I trusted this one. It was actually good and seemed just as fresh as the other meals I’d had.
The last thing that I’ve had (twice) and didn’t really expect is Indian food. Butter curry chicken and medium curry chicken with a side of nan has quickly become my favorite. I first had this at the Aeon Mall in Kyoto. Then, again at a Yokosuka restaurant.
Overall, we’ve eaten well. The food has been good and I’ve eaten similar food that I would have while in the States.
