Eating Places in Tokyo
My friend, Kanji-san, claims that the best noodle restaurants are in the Ebisu area of Tokyo. We had lunch at this one and took this photograph of the flower arrangement behind the reception desk. The luncheon consisted of three separate noodle dishes - first fine "somen" noodles, then a quite different tasting, medium sized noodle dish, and lastly, a dish of udon (buckwheat) noodles. Any one of the dishes would have made a satisfactory lunch. The evening before we all went to another restaurant for a fish meal. This meal was also large but so delicious that nothing remained when I had finished.
