Today, we rode our bikes down to Tsurumai to try out a pork cutlet restaurant called Kiharutei that has a vegetarian macrobiotic menu. The food was really good, but SO FILLING! Literally, I have been unable to eat since then, and it’s been 7 hours.
Kushiage is really popular in Nagoya, but it’s an off-limits food to vegetarians, since it normally includes meat. This kushiage, however, was made from seitan and onions. It was delicious!
We also got both varieties of dandanmen. The light colored version was spicier and less salty than the black version, so we both liked that one a bit more. It was super yummy, too! However, it was definitely a two person dish, so I’d bring a friend if I were you.
The staff there was super friendly, and even gave us another dining recommendation! I learned, too, that the one chef there cooked for the Munich Olympics!! So, whether you are vegetarian or not, it’s a good place to try.
The one chef also gave me this kusudama. I thought it was super pretty!!
After lunch, we walked around Tsurumai Park. I am so accustomed at this point to how weird things can be here, that I didn’t even notice that the park was filled with cosplayers until Teddy pointed it out. I guess that’s what happens when you see Sailor Moons walking around any time you go shopping in Osu. 😀
This strange duck person, however, immediately alerted me to the weirdness.

Teddy liked her dress a lot.

Have a great week!!
