Yesterday afternoon I was running around my neighborhood without lunch and too many errands to do, and suddenly I turned into a teenage boy. MUST. EAT. ONE MILLION CALORIES. NOW.
Fortunately, the ever-handy MosBurger was close enough to stumble into, but as I was making for the finish line, I was brought to a screeching halt by this month’s special: The Spaghetti Burger! This marvel of fast food engineering attempts to satisfy three heretofore mutually exclusive cravings: pasta, tonkatsu (deep-fried pork cutlet) and burgers! MosBurger’s deep understanding of the kind of brain fade associated with sudden teenage hunger has produced a masterpiece that can be ordered with two words, but delivers deep-fried porkalicious goodness and Italian comfort food all served up with special sauce and shredded cabbage on a sesame seed bun! International junk food mashup achievement unlocked!
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!
