Tonight I went to the Shiruman Lakeside Restaurant. It's just down the
street from JCMU. It has a nice warm "Japanese home" atmosphere,
with friendly people running the place.
Someone recommended that I order katsudon (fried pork cutlets over rice topped with a
scrambled egg sauce and a bit of seaweed). It was tasty. The people at the
restaurant saw us walk in from the nasty wet snow (after we circled the building
trying to find the door), and gave us udon (Japanese noodles) in broth topped with
green onions (as a gift). It was also tasty. With green tea to drink and a few
pickled things to clear the palate, it made a fine meal.
Here's a picture of the meal, and
here's a picture of Tom Acker,
my roommate, who happened to smile for the camera while I had it out.
