I’ll See Your Triple Burger And Raise You A Shrimp Puck


What is Lotteria thinking? Seriously, how could you even bite that thing? I’m not talking about the triple-decker beef-o-rama – I’m eyeing that fried shrimp tower-o-power with the shovelful of tartar sauce just waiting to squish out the other side and all over your shoes (and your socks and your pants and, basically, the shoes of anyone standing within a five foot radius.)

If you can’t get to Japan to snarf down one of these, at least 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!

    • I secretly think that nobody ever eats that giant food, they just take selfies with it. (And hmm, shrimp burger with basil sauce? Sounds rather good, and I’m with you on the cabbage!)
