OK, so that title is a bit deceiving. We had a LAYOVER in Japan! Hehe! However we were very excited about this opportunity to have a bowl of Undon with tempura shrimp & veggies. Hubby found this little restaurant in the international section of the airport and has been telling me about it for over a year. Every time he stops over in Japan he eats here. And let me tell you, it is YUMMY! If you ever find yourself at Narita airport on a lay over, go find this noodle place, it is very close to the McDonalds. (Sorry, I would give better directions, but that is all I remember.)
So, we couldn't stop there.....since we were in Japan I felt we needed to have sushi. Now, I don't care if we are in an airport, my thoughts are that any sushi in Japan (yes, even at the airport) is better than sushi anywhere in the US, or even Korea. And I was right. Hubby was a bit disappointed in the sushi because it wasn't up to "Japan" standards, (which I agree) but he needs to get over it, it was still super yummy (and way better than anywhere else - and he calls me a food snob). If I ever have the choice of eating sushi in the states, or in the Narita airport, I would totally pick the airport.
After we finished our eating tour of the Narita airport, we boarded the airplane for the next leg of our trip....16 more hours to Houston...
Proud Army wife and mother to 4 wonderful children. I love to cook, travel, work out and scrapbook life’s adventures when I find the time. We just got orders & are heading back to the states in March 2010. I'm bummed that our time has been cut short, but proud of Hubby for the reason why.
