nice...i think the "food court" is one of the traditional favorites. all children of the earth love takoyaki.


You got that right. It was the longest line for food and most of the people in line were teenagers. It was my first time eating takoyaki, and I must say, it's soooo yummy. Drooling I've never seen it served in restaurants before.

cool...i'm glad you liked it....it's always fun to have novel experiences, especially with regard to food...i won't lie...i've never had takoyaki in the states...just once when i when i went on my trip to japan....it's a favorite snack food in japan (of course)...i believe it's more popular in the Osaka area as opposed to Tokyo....

welps, sounds like it was a highlight for you and your bro.....lucky for you guys ^_^

i remember last year, waiting in line for some food at the Japan expo, i forgot exactly what it was, i think some mochi and tea.....about a 30 min wait...

I almost got some Takoyaki at Mitsuwa today, but decided not to get it from the bento food area of the market.
The Takoyaki that i had in Kyoto, was delicious!....Nishiki Market. Applaud

i can only imagine how delicious it was...given the japanese penchant for good tasting food....i envy what must have been a tasty dining experience.

all things considered, i'm sure it was a fairly inexpensive...but more importantly....it tasted dayem good! those little things, often times, tend to be the most memorable experiences when indulging in the culture of another country.

I found a store called Miyamoto foods. Apparently one, if not the only, Japanese food store in town. I'll try to see what they have in store first.

Wondering if anyone went to this year's Japan Expo this past weekend. And, if so, how did it compare to previous years.

I didn't go this year. I'm a USC alumnus and there was a little football game that I was interested in watching on Saturday. I needed Sunday to take care of all the stuff I didn't get done on Saturday.

Did you guys really think you were going to lose to us, er, UCLA, two years in a row.... Especially with a duct tape and bailing wire crew at QB?

There's talk of Norm Chow being the head coach... That would be ironic. Smile
