Fulfilling A Dream

Jul 18

My last lunch with my teachers on my last day at my school in the JET Programme: spicy naeng-myeon.
I just ate there last night for one of my farewell parties, but the teachers have been wanting to go there for a year now. I didn’t mind going there two days in a row. I love eating there.
My lunch was free. The owner said that it was my farewell present. I’ll really miss eating there. It always feels like I’m eating at a friend’s house instead of a restaurant. Technically, I am.

Yesterday’s lunch: sweet and sour pork lunch set for ¥700.
Sweet and sour pork (barely any meat), fried fish, rice, pickles, and egg drop soup. Affordable, tasty, and ample.

Today’s school lunch: bread, fried battered basil marinated fish, winter melon soup, and macaroni salad. 

Great lunch today. The basil was a nice accent to the fish. I made a fish sandwich.

Today’s school lunch: wakame seaweed rice, spaghetti, canned tuna with pickled cucumbers and wakame seaweed, and a slice of watermelon.
Had the same lunch as Tuesday. We were supposed to have bread, but because of the typhoon yesterday, the bread wasn’t able to be delivered or something. So had rice instead. Some of the students must LOVE watermelon because they ate it down to the outer rind. A couple of the boys even ate the rind.

Today’s “win” school lunch: chicken curry pilaf, chicken katsu, potato and vegetable soup, and ice creaaaaaam!!

Today’s lunch is a play on words. Katsu can mean either “fried cutlet” or “to win/victory.” Tomorrow is the spring tournament. So they’re eating katsu (victory).
