Dinner in Kyoto at Oiwa, a traditional Japanese restaurant that specializes in frying fish, meats and vegetables according to the whim of the chef. A meal consists of six different servings of five skewers (which takes over an hour for serving and eating) made of white fish, octopus, crab, eggplant, asparagus, pumpkin, potato, green peppers, beef, pork and more, all served with three sauces, soy, ketchup or teriyaki.


 
PAIGE'S FOOD NOTES
 
21 June 1999 - I picked a restaurant called Oiwa, a traditional Japanese establishment that serves on skewers fried fish, meats and vegetables according to the whim of the chef. This was a delicious dinner, but beyond the taste, the presentation was beautiful with small pieces served on skewers along with several sauces (soy, ketchup and teriyaki and lemon pepper). My dinner cost $60 and included 30 different kinds of meat and vegetables like white fish, octopus, salmon, crab, eggplant, asparagus, pumpkin, potato, sweet potato, green peppers, beef, pork and more. My dinner did not include Miso soup, rice or small pickled salads as Jim’s meal did.
