So I was going shopping at one of the bigger malls for some hot sauces when I stumbled across some of my friends from the main campus. We decided to get lunch at a little Italian place in the food court. "But you're in Japan!" you say. I know, I know, it's crazy, but we wanted a taste of Europe. In any case, here's a picture of what I ate. Basically spaghetti with katsup on it, what made me remember that I was still over in Asia was the fact that they crack a raw egg on top of it. I swear, Japan has never heard of salmonella. Still, it wasn't too bad, the egg turned the marinara into carbonara. I think I'll just stick from making my own pasta sauce from now on. Va bene!

So another interesting variation on the nabe style of meal. This one is called sukiyaki. It's pretty easy, all you have to do is add meat and sesame oil to the large iron pot, cook the meat, and then add in cabbage, mushrooms, tofu, onions, and some other tasty stuff. Then add water, and sukiyaki sauce, which is basically sugar and shoyu. Let it boil for a while, then eat eat eat! Yum!
