    I really wish I could get kare pan (curry bread) here in Denver. So delicious.

    Never tried Venison. I tried horse meat once in a resto in Japan. It wasn't bad as I expected.

    Venison's good, rich and mildly gamey, super lean though, takes a bit more care not to dry it out when cooking.

    I like my meat with a little bit of fat, though.

    My friend killed a wild boar in PA. His Dad got a Elk. We had the whole mess properly butchered up and aged. I am well stocked. Plenty of sausage and all that. We failed at a few of our efforts. Shear quantity made up for that.

    Food in Japan is stellar.

    I once ate Matsusaka beef in Japan. It was absolutely amazing. So tender and delicate...

    Chances that I ever eat this again range from Zero to Extremely Unlikely.

    We got Elk from Pennsylvania. Very fatty. Very tasty. We smoked a bunch of Jowl meat and back strap. Even dried out it is still tasty.... We made elk nachos. Fucking tasty....

    Tonkatsu, not kotsu. Katsu is the common theme: katsu over rice (katsudon), pork katsu (tonkatsu), chicken katsu, curry katsu... mmmm.

    I would be fine if I never ate karaage again, though. All that I've tried are overly tough and overly cooked.

    Shabu shabu.... :drool:

    ah...
    I learned about real(-ish) Japanese food while living in Vegas. So much good food there and most of it is nowhere near the Strip.
