I had a culture-shock experience last week for lunch. I felt as if I went to Japan for the afternoon…
I went to a place called Mitsuwa Marketplace in Costa Mesa, California — a few blocks from our office. The marketplace reminded me of a superstore with a food court of only Japanese food.
“An interesting atmosphere; something I have never experienced before.. I would do it again.”
I couldn’t read the signs, different smells coming from the food areas and a lot of people eating with chopsticks. I am not a professional at chopsticks (yet) so I used a fork for my food.
- Select the desired area of food choice.
- Tell the person behind the counter what you would like and they will give you a number.
- Once your number is called, you can go back to the same counter and pick up your food.
- Nom Nom Nom.. delicious Japanese food.
My dish of Soy Sauce Ramen Noodle.. nom.. A piece of pork added for extra flavor..
