Despite having an icky sickness (I don’t know what), I dragged myself out of my house and away from my kotatsu to see Megumi, our friend from the Gotos. Going between the Gotos and Iki, even though they’re both part of Nagasaki prefecture, is hard business, so I always try to see her when she comes for a visit. She’s an English teacher on the Gotos, gorgeous, tall, and both super Japanese and super not-Japanese. She’s also hilarious.
The nabe and tempura at this restaurant (we call it the Face Place because it has a giant face on the side of the building) was super oishii. And Megumi didn’t even yell at me once no matter how often I said, “Can I eat it yet?”, which is pretty amazing.
