Eat Japan

Today I read Lonely Planet’s poll about If you could travel to any city for the food… The Top three were Bangkok, Rome then Paris. Wow I’m surprised Bangkok came out first by far, probably because it is so cheap and their food really appeals to ‘westerners’. Well Rome I guess makes sense since pastas and pizzas are so much part of our lives and you really have to try it at its origins. Then of course I love French food’s fine dining with well matched taste and precise presentation.

It reminds me of the movie Eat, Pray, Love. It inspired me to think about where I’d choose places to go to for each of those purposes. For Eat, I have decided it definitely has to be Japan. They have such a wide variety of food such as fish, seafood, skewers, teppanyaki BBQ, desserts, miso soup, sake, rice balls, ramen noodles and the list goes on. But I guess raw fish doesn’t appeal to a lot of people, but you have not tried real Japanese food until you are in the country. I have NEVER tasted bad Japanese food, because their culture has such high demands for quality food, presentation and taste. It is also not surprising that Japanese has one of the highest life expectancies in the world, because of their diet is so healthy and you rarely see a fat Japanese person. It is devastating to know that the earthquake, tsunami and radiation incidents will affect so much of its ecosystem, from its seafood to vegetables to meat and milk and water.

    I’m a huge fan of Japanese food. I agree, they strive for excellent quality foods which makes it more appealing to me. Thai food is stellar as well.
