Beer Restaurant Old Station

Before I ate, I was all set to write a snarky post about this place, but I kinda enjoyed the 'fried curry udon', which is their speciality item and comes on a sizzling skillet which rapidly cool, letting the curry congeal, which is a little gross but significantly better than sizzling, spitting, and thoroughly threatening to go postal on your suit. Oops.

What's weird about Old Station is that there's no lunch menu, just the same stuff throughout the day. You can get lunchy things like a katsu sando, those noodles, or maybe a pizza, but you can also get dinnery things like salads and side dishes. Now that I've written that it sounds wrong, because in America you'd have a choice of salads for lunch, but in Japan it's rare to see a lunch salad. They're just one of many things you'd get for dinner - lunch is for carbs.

Another thing that was weird was the guy in the hat who sat down at the next table and ordered the 2-hour all-you-can-drink plan, at 2 PM. I'll leave it at that, OK?

Jus one moa, 'K?
