Who would have thought.

Tokyo, August 2009
Jappers is spaghetti crazy. You can pick it up in 711, their Italian restaurants rock and they even serve it with some of their Japanese meals. We read somewhere that in one area of Tokyo there used to be more Italian restaurants than in any other country. I guess it's similar to their noodles and you could eat it with choppies if you wanted to. We nailed some mean G-bread also, I was absolutely delighted.

I give this puppy a 6.8. Bit of sneaky cheese hanging about but otherwise it really hit the spot.
