    Sorry Miulang. I missed your question. No, it was prepared in a shoyu / sugar base. I was so happy to see it was butterfish, I'd have loved it no matter how it was prepared.

    Slice of pepperoni pizza, fresh from the ovens of DeLaurenti's, Pike Place Market, Seattle (like I need to add that last word.) Oh, and water.

    Braised Oxtail, two scoops rice and macaroni salad. Iced tea. ~ Diners in Kalihi.

    The Braised Oxtail was succulent and sooooo onolicious. Firm yet melted in my mouth. The sauce quite simple. Like Stew. No vegetables. Simply devine.

    You must try it. I highly recommend it.

    5 piece chicken select strips with sweet chili sauce, fries, and super-sized Coke. Hot fudge sundae with nuts to start it off.

    Yes, I like my dessert first.

    Macaroni & cheese from Beecher's, Pike Place Market. They make their own cheese on the premises. They ship to CONUS, but not Hawai`i, Alaska or internationally (yet.)http://www.beechershandmadecheese.com/

    The honey toast at Shokudo is the bomb! Mmmmmm...

    Today was a stir-fry of tofu, broccoli, carrots and snow peas in sesame oil and chili pepper oil.

    For the ignorant (like me), can you folks describe the "honey toast" dish?

    Chowed on some Chicken Pad Thai Noodles. The noodles come out orange. Do you think the restaurant uses food coloring?

    The honey toast is the picture furthest on the right (of the food pictures). Two really thick slices of bread with the centers cut out and cubed, with honey (or caramel and honey or chocolate and honey or red beans) topped with ice cream.

    Spicy tuna roll, pretty simple stuff. Lemonade.

    I was fortunate enough to go on an exchange trip to Japan during high school. My mom told me that even the rice would be better. She was SO right.

    Another thing I miss is real Japanese bread. Even white bread, which I avoid here at home. The St. Germaine bakery bread here is not the same. It LOOKS similar, but it is a far cry. The picture of the honey toast reminded me of how much I miss Japan-bread ... and rice ... and how I wish I still had the wooden geta I bought there. (sigh) I could walk around like Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa!

    Back OT ... I was too busy to eat lunch today. Snacked on Goldfish later in the pm. (Da crackah, silly!)

    I miss the Japanese breakfasts in Japan. (Not the "American" breakfasts in Japan which inevitably included runny scrambled eggs). A small salad, natto, miso soup, fruit, good rice and a piece of fish. mmmmmm. Ok, ok, this isn't the breakfast thread.

    Lunch. Somewhere in Chinatown. I dunno the name of the place but I know how to find it. Beef Pho (but none of the "weird" stuff like tendons and tripe *g*) and iced coffee with condensed milk.

    You might want to try the bread at Ginza Kimuraya (Kahala Mall). It's pretty close to the real deal. You know you're in a "authentic" place when all you see are Japanese nationals eating there. Too bad they don't serve a traditional Japanese breakfast. Their lunch menu is quite good though!
