Japanese Pub Food
With the university semester all over bar the exams, I have time to catch up with friends. We meet at izakaya which are Japanese pubs. Beer is cheap (180 yen - about one pound - a pint at one place we went to last week) and there are great selections of tasty and healthy food. My favourites are:
1. Tebasaki Chicken (a Nagoya speciality - hot and spicy) 2. Agedashidofu (deep-fried tofu topped with strips of seaweed, grated ginger and green onion) 3. Butter-fried shellfish topped with spring onion
