Ramens of Japan
“Here I stayed at a traditional ryokan (Japanese inn) where I was served another teishoku that was brought to my room by the innkeepers promptly at 6pm. It included the usual rice, fish, tempura, some smoked pork, but also a small bowl of fried grasshoppers. Another great slice of historic Japan. After the meal I went promptly to bed at 7:30pm because the sun went down and there were no lights!”
—If you can’t get to Japan, you can at least scroll wistfully through beautiful internet slideshows chronicling the wonderful things people ate there. There’s also a bourbon hot dog.
