Graduation Day

Ah, senior high school graduation day. Guaranteed music box covers of cheesy J-pop ballads, a room temperature bento for lunch, and a dinner smorgasbord that is constantly being interrupted by speeches --> the food gets cold.

Lunch bento: kashiwameshi rice (fried rice with pork, egg and seaweed); cooked daikon, lotus root, konnyaku, seaweed, tofu; fried chicken, fish, shrimp, and sausage; fried/sweetened egg, purple mochi, candied cooked peas, and mysterious cellophane noodle thing.

6.5/10. Definitely edible and occasionally delicious, but I'm not a fan of the "room temperature" thing and I always prefer the regular school lunch.

Dinner options: Chinese style fried chicken with sesame sauce and cooked peppers and onions; baked fish in a butter corn sauce with broccoli and onions; assorted sushi and sashimi; sliced beef filets with ginger gravy, tomatoes and lettuce; cooked shrimp and oysters; udon with leeks and cooked tripe; individual Baskin Robbins ice cream cups; fresh fruit; all you can drink tea or Asahi Super Dry bottled beer.

8.5/10. The food was excellent but the ice cream was covered in freezer burn.
