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.
