Iconic views come along with iconic dishes. Out for dinner in Ponto-chō.
Out for a walk in Kyoto.
And enjoying the view from Hakodateyama.

One of the pleasant things about travel is the food.
I'm often eating a favorite dish that I haven't had in a long time, or something completely new. In the new category, I can put ika no me. Sashimi, no less.
In the old favorites, apple crisp in Washington.
Shio butter corn ramen in Hakodate.
In Bangkok, jok moo sai kai. Also sai a lot of doughnuts. In this case, 8 baht of doughnuts.
And สตอผัดกะปิหมู. With shrimp too.
