Ok, this post took me waaaay too much time to get format. AAAARGH!!!!!!!
There is a large store here in Honolulu named Shirokiya. It's been around since before I was born (methinks). It is a mulit-level mecca for all things Japanese. Electronics, toys, make-up, handbags, clothing, kitchenware, health products....you name it. But best of all, an entire floor is devoted to FOOD. Imported Japanese food, from grocery items to delectible goodies cooked right in front of you. I always go into a frenzy when I visit because it is total, orgasmic sensory overload. These are a few pics from the last time I visited, but this is a just a miniscule sampling. I stuffed my face (and with me, this is some kind of fish, raw or cooked, or both), then surreptitiously snapped some pics on my way out. Asian food has been and will always be my favorite, and this is my preference, in order (although it changes sometimes):
7- Filipino/Malaysian (noy HUGE on it, but they make kick-ass roasted pig)
Next week, we are going to a fantastic Indian restaurant and I'll snap lots of pics!! It's named Himalayan Kitchen, and the food does have some Napalese Influence. I can't wait!!!!
