It is pretty easy to find perfect moments in food, especially on the weekend.  The weekend is probably the only time one has to really prepare a good meal, or if not that, at least to enjoy a good meal.

My perfect moment was enjoying a little known Japanese dish called tonkatsu.  Tonkatsu would best be described at the Japanese take on Weiner schnitzel.  It is pork, rather than veal, and the batter seems a little lighter.  Add to that the delicious tonkatsu sauce and you’ve got something great.Image

I did my best to order in Japanese, and enjoy a short exchange with the waitress.  It was as if, for a brief moment, I was back in Japan.  The background sounds were the same.  The clattering of dishware was the same.  I was reminded how much I miss the place.

About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.
