Today was a good food day. Posted on 09/03/2002.

Eating began around 7am, when, after having wandered with Tsukiji, I had sushi for breakfast (as was recommended by a couple guide books). Something I could definitely get used to. That makes my second sushi meal since I've arrived (the first was a conveyor belt sushi place). The maguro (tuna) this morning was excellent. The other fishes were good, though no better than you'd get at a good Bay Area sushi restaurant (the same could be said for the conveyor belt sushi I ate).

Still. Sushi. Mmmm.

After a noon-time nap that last until 1:30, I went to the teppanyaki restaurant atop the hotel I'm staying. Teppanyaki is what I would have simply referred to as Benihana-style cooking (and thus probably be insulting someone's ancestors or something), where in the meat and vegetables are prepared on a large flat hot metal surface. I had a simple lunch that was quite tasty--steak (already cut into bit size portions!), with vegetables and salad. For dessert was a delightful apricot sherbet. The funniest thing about the meal: The full lunch was a set offer, costing 1,800 yen (about $15). I also ordered a Coke. Which, when I got the check, I found out cost 750 yen. Almost half the price of the meal.
