You can find me lurking in one of the following locations during my days off.
Bamiyan offers a nice range of Chinese looking food and has a decent drink bar. My standard order is:
- Fried rice or Mabodofu – Sometimes both.
- Fried Chicken Bits.
- The deep fried bread covered in honey, or Hachimitsu age pan (蜂蜜揚げパン), is outstanding.
Cheap, filling, and generally palatable Saizeriya serves as our “Monday Date” place. Last monday, we spent a whooping 1300¥, or about USD 11.59, on two orders of Doria, one mini-cheese pizza, and one foccia. Oh, and 120¥ on the drink bar. Not a bad deal. Out of all the places I visit, Saizeriya has food I can actually eat – plenty of non-fish dishes. Without fail, I still limit myself to the:
- Milano Fu Doria.
- Mini-cheese pizza.
- Spicy fried chicken.
- Garlic toast.
Bashamichi = Saizeriya on steroids. Order:
- Cheese pizza.
- Fried Chicken.
Coco’s revolving door menu keeps me off balance. My technique is to hit Coco’s when they are in the Curry phase. During other non-curry seasons, I just find something that looks familiar and hope it isn’t too bland.
This particular Starbuck’s is my Sunday and Monday hangout. The first table on the left hand side knows me well. Starbucks only offers three beverages worth speaking of:
- Cafe Mocha
- Hot Chocolate
No use arguing with me. “It’s turtles, turtles, turtles all the way.”
