Today I’m taking a rare break from my usual chronicling of Japanese pizza weirdness to bring you an innovation by J-Dominos that can only be described as swoonworthy: the mille-feuille cheesy crust! That oozy goodness you see above is some sort of mystery cheese, sandwiched between a rather flaky and un-bread-like crust. In a country where cheese used to be an optional topping(!), this is a major breakthrough! It’s not for the purist, and doesn’t get big points for being great the next day, cold, for breakfast, but when it’s delivered hot to the door on a rainy night: yessssss!
Read a novel set in Tokyo…
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
