Standing-only sushi restaurant in Shibuya, Tokyo. Sushi is made as you order and eat. No real plate…just the banana leaf!
For 2 sushi hand rolls and 12 sushi pieces, it cost about $16. Great price, especially considering the price and quality compared to the sushi at the fresh fish market we went to a few days ago.

Ending our last night in Japan with Italian (pasta and calamari) for #firstdinner. Yes, we’re like #hobbits when we’re on vacation. We eat two dinners. ^_^

Found another Mexican food joint in Korea. Macho’s is in Hongdae, a hipster part of Seoul where quite a few foreigners can be found walking the streets and shopping.

Beef jerky…4 pieces for $2. Unbelievable! Had I known there were only 4 pieces in the package, I absolutely would’ve passed.
At least it was a healthy snack…
