Reporting on the Food Report

One of my favorite blogs about Japanese cuisine is The Japanese Food Report, which is edited by food writer Harris Salat. I wrote an essay about the wonderful food I consumed – and some I couldn't find – during my tour of Japanese baseball, and Harris was kind enough to post it on his site. Please read "Chowing Down at Japanese Baseball Stadiums."

The sign says Kobe Beef croquettes, but they were sold out by the time I made it to the counter.

A beer girl carries a Kirin Ichiban keg on her back at Mazda Zoom Zoom Stadium in Hiroshima.

I was surprised to see this van serving Okinawan cuisine in front of the Seibu Dome in Tokorozawa, Saitama.

Inside the Seibu Dome, two youngsters share a smile and a bento at one of the picnic areas in the stadium.

One of my favorite meals on the baseball tour: Curry rice at Meiji Jingu Stadium in Tokyo.

Side Note:
Harris, who specializes in writing about Japanese food, recently published a book called Japanese Hot Pots: Comforting One-Pot Meals. He wrote it in conjunction with Tadashi Ono, executive chef at Matsuri, a fantastic Japanese restaurant in New York City. It has an extensive menu, and if you love sushi, this is the place to go!
