A bowl of udon noodles served with crunchy deep-fried flour batter. At first I thought they were rice crispies but they are not made from rice. Of course, they went soggy pretty much straight away but it was an interesting enough dish.
A plate of fugu, the deadly puffer fish. I am still here to tell the tale so the poison was successfully removed. The fugu was cooked in a hot pot style, called nabe in Japanese. We also had some of it raw.
