March 2012

Not really Japan related, but I went back to America for the first time in 3 years.










Pinball museum in Vegas.


Over 350lbs eat free.  I was 260 at one point in life.  Instead of going up 90, I went down 90.





Great food was a must.  But I also had some ramen.  だいたい不味い.  Read about it here.




This spot in the Mission District.  So legit.






Momofuku has some of the worst ramen I have ever had, but their side dishes are spectacular.



Famous painting somewhere here.

Hidden orthodox Jew bagel shop.  Damn I want to eat this every morning.







See you in another 3.

February 2012

February, 2012

Good luck . . . again.

I'll get around to reviewing non-ramen restaurants one of these days.

Sky Tree - May 22nd - something like $50 to go up.

Baby on the way. If you see a nice lady on the train with one of these on her bag, give up your seat. I'm looking at you, EVERYONE!


In Japan, girls give chocolates on Valentines Day. Benefits of teaching at an all-girls school. Too bad I cut sugar out of my diet 6 years ago. Fat me from the past is hungry.






Dude rolled into the whiskey bar hella drunk, then bought me a $40 glass of some really good stuff. Solid!

Ramen soup blind taste testing.

Could you identify these shops from the photos alone?

Pigs feet for dinner.

March will be spent in America.
