Ethnic Taste: Bamiyan

Yes, that’s right, Bamiyan, a chain restaurant in Japan serving Chinese cuisines, which offers every known popular Chinese food dish right here in the land of green tea and onsen. But why write about it ? Well, for starters, according to Dancyu, a very well known food magazine in Japan, hails this restaurant as the best Chinese food you can get for the yen. The restaurant is graded according to taste, timely service, and atmosphere. Do I agree with Dancyu ? Yes, because I’ve been to China a few times and have tasted the best that they had to offer. I’ve even been to HK, and that was before England gave it back. Food from both of these countries left my stomach with ghastly gastrointestinal memories of which I won’t talk about here. I’m not China bashing, I just don’t think Chinese food in China can rival Chinese food in Japan – call me subjective. I know Chinese food in L.A. is quite delectable. I know that for a fact because I’m overweight and I have a strong addiction to MSG’s and trans fatty foods with high carbohydrates. At least we can thank the Japanese for inventing MSG, so I’m not blaming Chinese chefs entirely. Food is food, right…? At any rate, I love Bamiyans. I recommend it highly for those who want something Simple & Good. Bamiyans will give you timely service, the food will invariably taste better because they use good ingredients. Another good thing about Bamiyans is there take out service. You can call from home and have your food delivered to your doorstep. If course you’ll need to have some understanding of the language, but if you want to eat something that’s affordable and satisfying then Bamiyan - it ! Oh, and remember, this is not Bamiyans the Buddha.
Some dishes to note: Fried rice, chicken karaage, noodles.

Shin-Okubo: Little Korea

So I finally got around to going up there to Shin-Okubo,  the land of Seoul via the Yamanote Line.  Been putting this trip off for years for personal reasons;  I am not a fan of Hanlleyu.      I knew why I came up this way, and for none other reason than the food, and maybe to bask in the nausea of Korean romanticist who steal Japanese Jukujo's souls.    But honestly, I like spicy food and stews and pickled vegetables that challenge my taste buds.    I also love the little funky cafes that line the main thoroughfares and alley ways, each with their own little eclectic menus and interior decor.     This place is Korea.  

Shin-Okuba represents more than just a place to relish in Korean culinary delights and K-pop culture, but a place where Koreans can express themselves through their culture.    You can feel the local vibe in the air as you're walking down narrow walkways and footpaths.    I have personally been to mainland Korea six times, so a lot of the nostalgia was there …

Japanese Girls: A Sex(quisition)

While writing this, I was listening to "Going Through Changes" by Eminem

No, I haven't lost any love for momma, Japanese Jukujo that is, and yes, I do have a special place in my heart for young Japanese women, too. 

But then....then I glance over and there's a momma, a delectable Japanese Jukujo momma.  Fully rounded, and fully figured and fair healthy skinned.  Full fine silky muff fujii mounds. 

From this point I feel I need to qualify my remarks more thoroughly, though, especially when referencing women in general.   Firstly, it cannot be denied that there are beautiful women all over the world and from a variety of different backgrounds.  Women are people. However, in this essay I would like to take it a little further.

For me, living in Japan I have created a world unto myself so to speak.  I believe that some people create reasons for doing things, more so than there actually being a real need for doing said things, while others drift along accepting any an…
