Food food food!

So far this is my favorite restaurant we've gone to in Misawa:
It has an actual Japanese name (Ohima or something like that I think?), but Americans here refer to it simply as "Pizza Curry." They serve (appropriately enough) pizza and curry. A strange combination, but it works! The 2nd floor is the restaurant, and downstairs is a cute little bakery with fancy-looking french pastries. We didn't get a chance to try anything when we went, but we'll be back!

Last night we visited a really yummy ramen place. Corey had a super delicious big bowl of a tofu/curry/rice combination and it was only $3! We'll be going back there for sure! Mmmm mmm!

Bakeries here are crazy, I must say. They have all kinds of weird things! The other day we picked up a roll that was filled with cow tongue (not my favorite thing). We also tried a melon roll- bread filled with an orange melon-flavored cream (which Corey originally mistook for cheese) and covered in a hard, green, almost candy-like coating. It was... different. There's also some really great stuff- we tried a sweet cheese bread that was heavenly!

Ok, I'm hungry now... gotta go eat!

Sounds like your tastes are branching out. Try lots of yummy things I hear that there are some things you can only taste in Japan.

I've always thought that a huge obstacle to moving to another country would be branching out to try new foods. Fears confirmed :)

mmmmm....

...how's the sushi? For reals?

Kaitlin- Don't be too scared, it's not all bad! There's some to-die-for stuff as well!

Stef- We haven't had sushi yet, believe it or not! I'm DYING to try it. As far as we can tell so far, sushi isn't as big here as we're led to believe (way up north here at least). Curry and ramen seem to be the big things, go figure...

Oh I have to know...what was the name of the Ramen place you really like!??! BTW- Pizza Curry is our fav. rest. in Misawa (so far) too!

I'm not totally sure of the name... Dairu ramen maybe? It's the one across the street from Sukiya on POL road (black building). I love the hot and sour ramen and my husband loves... well, everything. Haha.
