    Authority Zero Is Turning Japanese

    ​I really think so. It's been a busy year for Mesa's leading reggae/punk export, Authority Zero. The band is in the midst of a national tour that includes a date at Marquee Theatre on November 5, which will be a hometown sendoff of sorts before the band heads to Japan at the end of the month ...

    Gambling on Fish and Chips: Pick a Cod, Any Cod

    Like bangers and mash or bubble & squeak, fish and chips is the kind of perfect pairing you'll find at any decent English pub. It's also the only way most parents can get their kids to eat fish -- because everything is better when battered and fried. For this week's battle, we pitted t ... More >>

    Check Out Radio Cafe's Menu

    ​Curious to see the final menu at brand-new Radio Cafe, the new incarnation of Radio Milano? I know they switched up the name so that they weren't tied to Italian food, but perhaps they should've just called it Radio Kyoto -- there are seven different sushi rolls in the mix, plus sake.

    Laudig in Japan: Even More Photos

    ​Since I first visited Japan 18 years ago, I'd only ever seen the faint outline of Mount Fuji through the clouds. Last week, though, I got a clear view of the iconic Fuji-san on three different occasions -- too exciting! This was the first one, taken from the window of the Shinkansen (bullet train ... More >>

    Eating in Kyoto

    The lunch set at Imobou, this tiny restaurant on the northern edge of Maruyama Park in Kyoto. The place has been there for generations, and it’s famous for the dish on the lower left: a kind of boiled potato with dried cod. I dutifully ate it, but it had a strange musty taste. Uh, not my fave. The ... More >>

    Feed me, Tokyo

    The day after I got back to Tokyo, my sweetie and another friend and I trekked up to Mt. Takao, outside the city. So many restaurants have plastic models of food on display outside, but at one place, they had a cute display made out of papier-mache. Engrish is everywhere! Yes, it’s a ve ... More >>
