Wow, must be the rich side of Kenya. When I was there, this is not what we and the locals ate.

I don't think outside of Kenya they serve what the locals eat.
The African food I ate here looked a lot like this.

Try Little Tokyo or Sawtelle Blvd. in Westwood... Then there's Gardena and Torrance.

I guess this would be the appropriate thread, some chopsticks etiquette: http://kencorp.metroblogs.jp/files/2012/07/2eg4ac4.jpg

Disagree with shoveling food in one's mouth attached to a bowl (kaki bashi) as being taboo--how else would you eat ochazuke? I also do it when I eat tamago rice and fried rice out of a chawan but only at the very end when I'm trying to get those last few grains. Been doing it since I was a tyke--no one scolded me then; too late to change now.

The other taboos I've committed in the past were neburi bashi (licking the tips of chopsticks) and saguri bashi (looking for contents in a soup with chopsticks).

Will try to avoid these gaffes should I ever sit down to a meal with the royal family.

Hashi story-- On my last trip to Japan, we had lunch at a restaurant in Matsuyama that was a combination Japanese/Italian meal (weird, huh). Everything was delicious, but I thought it was funny when I saw some of my fellow travelers trying to eat their chicken in tomato sauce pasta dish with chopsticks. I guess they didn't notice the fork and spoon next to their plate.

I wondered about that one myself. I just got done watch "Kodoku no Gourmet 2" and if just about every episode that's how Yutaka Matsushige does it.

Same here... I always fish out the tofu in my miso soup. Mr Green

Chashu miso ramen at Ramen Santouka, Mitsuwa Torrance.

Not bad... The chashu was nice and melt-in-your-mouth tender and the soup was flavorful, but a bit salty, I thought... Noodles were tender, but thin... I like my noodles al dente and thick, like at Ramen Mottainai, which is still my favorite.
