Yukkuri Countdown JAPAN

I did it, I ordered the right one. Katsudon isn't ever a very pretty food; the egg on top makes it look like the surface of a strange planet or moon. Naturally base school's lovely cafeteria's version is no exception. Still, perhaps you can enjoy it.

The thing is, I wasn't as happy as I thought I would be with my katsudon. This could be because of a number of reasons. First, it was kind of, well, it was cold. Second, I am getting more and more tired of eating the same fried foods so often. Third, it could be that I actually prefer the wafu sauce katsudon!

Because of the egg and the dousing of sweet sauce, the fried breading becomes soft and so wet that it slides off of the chicken when picked up. I think when the katsu has crunch it is more substantial and satisfying. Also, the wafu sauce is sharper and more noticeable to me.

That's my opinion for now but I'll probably change my mind if I eat another katsudon!

Maybe I need a katsu-break...

For some reason.. i've never liked katsudon either. Maybe.. it's because it seems like so much food.. and i for one.. donch like eating.. too much in one sitting... hehe! but that's just me.. :)

Seize the food, for Japan is time-service only! In other words, this blog is to preserve, share, and make the most of my six months left living in Japan. Yes, I am obsessed with food. Cheap food!

Life is short so I eat fast, lest it get cold or disappear. I'm currently teaching English in Japan for two years. I was born and raised in California, and will be returning there in Summer 2005. I was ovo-lacto-vegetarian for about seven years but decided to let it go during second year in Japan!
