Many years ago now a friend of mine learned about a traditional Japanese restaurant from a friend of hers who had lived in Japan. The restaurant, Musashi, has great food. My family and I LOVE the ton katsu lunch. It's a breaded and fried pork cutlet that comes with miso soup to start, then the plate itself has the pork, a separate bowl of rice, a salad with an A-MAZING house-made dressing, and a scoop of potato salad. It's probably a good thing it's not close to us or we'd be there all the time. Oh, and the gyoza (dumplings) make Little Man super happy!
This time when we went we sat in the mat room. We took our shoes off and stepped up into the room and then sat on mats...and there was a space for our feet to go so we didn't have to sit Indian-style. We'd never sat in the room before, so it was a neat new experience!
