LOL. Yes, we DO love Spam! Love, love, love it with all its death-defying sodium levels and artery-clogging traits!

I think I will try more of those fruit you mentioned. We can get them here in Asian markets but I haven't had the courage to try all of them. I grew up in a lychee tree so I do adore fresh lychee!

My time in both Singapore and Malaysia was very limited, but I hope to retrun to both. I did not try any fruits, except for what was on a buffet at the Marriott. I was warned away from durian from one of my daughter's college roommates who was studying abroad in Singapore. I would probably try it anyway, if I had a chance.

There was an excellent Indian restaurant in Iwakuni, Japan when I was ther a couple of years ago. It was frequented by a lot of folks from the base. They had wonderful naan. (I love my carbs.)

Our biggest adventure there was eating in a restaurant with no English on the menu and no English speaking staff. I ended up with three skewers. One had chicken meat and was tasty. One had cartilage and the other was chicken skin. At least the saki was good. It also makes a great story.

I fell in love with Okonomiyaki, or Japanese pancakes. I'm constantly looking for a reason to return to Japan.

Hi Susan,

Do you eat the peanuts as a meat substitute?

I see you live in one of my most favorite countries in the world. I had been a few times years ago, but last year when my wife and i were visiting our daughter who was studying near Brussels, we made a day trip to Amsterdam. My wife wanted to visit Corrie ten Boom's home and we were also going to Anne Frank's house, but the line was too long. We sat on a barge across from a little bar and had a couple of beers. It was a great day.

Hi Nick. When I was the Japanese Food site editor here, I posted an article about Okonomiyaki. Here it is:

Okonomiyaki

We just went to a yakitori restaurant here. Apparently there are hundreds in Japan but in CA, I found only this one. It just opened. The chicken skin skewer surprised us. It was delicious.

Nick, yes, I eat peanuts as a meat substitute - also a spoon of peanut butter about 3pm to hold me till 5:30pm, dinner time.

Amsterdam has so much to offer! I'm married to a Dutchie ...
