Dont forget everyone's favorite: Nato! If you are a gaijin (any kind not just us crackers) and can eat that then you truely like Japanese food. Personally, I can eat it, I can eat a whole bowl of it if I need to but I dont really go to far out of my way to eat it. Might I order it as a side? Occasionally, yes. Takoyaki is also quite good when made right. NATO has its own cuisine? Christ, it's bad enough that they've got their own black heli units.
