Ok, so before all the misery with the phone, I went to an absolutely fantastic little meal of oysters and wine with a few former students. It just reminded me of how my friend Dan said that he’s never had a bad meal at any restaurant in Japan. This wasn’t Japanese food at all, but everything was exquisite. Especially this salad here, which had, was it oysters or something else? and avocado, and a spicy sauce, and eggs. And raw oysters from everywhere from Ishikawa to New Zealand to Hokkaido to Australia. Wonderful meals like this are one of the many reasons I love this place.
