check it out:
chicken katsu moco! this is from L&G drive-in (these plate lunch people really need to think of better names for their restaurants). it’s at a food court in pearl city that has a bunch of tasty looking and affordable places. we will definitely return there.
it was quite delicious. but, i think it would be even better if it were a zippy’s chili chicken katsu moco. it was good though. they gave three gigantic pieces of chicken that were cut up. even i could not eat it all. this place does serve chili hamburger steak though so maybe i could convince them to make me a chili chicken katsu moco.
ALSO, i heard that natto (fermented soy beans) helps get rid of/prevent clots in your blood. so maybe if i eat my chili mocos with natto, that will be better. i think natto is growing on me though. it is quite tasty with rice and furikake.

another place cameron and i tried recently is daiichi noodles cafe. they have really cheap combos! this one only cost $7.25:
it includes a bowl of ramen (which has some pork), chicken katsu, and curry rice. they also have other choices like gyoza and other kinds of katsu. i had a big bowl of ramen:
it was quite good. they give a ton of vegetables (good) and the broth is very drinkable. even at the end, i didn’t feel all salted out like i often do at other ramen places. the only thing is that i only got one piece of pork so i kind of wished there was some more meat here. luckily i ate some of cameron’s chicken katsu so that was good.
i’ve found that these huge bowls of ramen have one problem: i get tired of eating them. i think a GREAT idea would be to serve 2-3 bowls of ramen with different broths and toppings. wouldn’t that be cool? halfway through my bowl, i started drinking some of cameron’s miso broth for a change. i think my multi-bowl ramen idea is pretty good. if i knew how to make ramen and yummy broths, i would start an awesome ramen shop. and eat lots of ramen.
