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.
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.
