I’m now safely ensconced in Makuhari Messe, everything I need ready to go for TGS. Well, everything except for my camera, which I kind of need to do that photo blog that I had been planning. Unfortunately, my camera has apparently decided to take the weekend off and chill out at home.
That is to say, I forgot it.
So I guess if you want pictures from TGS, you’ll have to live with whatever random thing that I decide to photograph with my phone. For instance, behold!
Haha, I didn’t say my phone’s camera was any good, did I? It’s actually pretty ancient.
But anyway, that is a halfway decent Italian restaurant you’re looking at. In Japan, no less! These are actually harder to find than you’d think, primarily owing to the Japanese penchant for mixing perfectly good pasta with things like mayonnaise, cod roe, and seaweed.
This place had some of that, but it also had a spicy garlic spaghetti that proved to be pretty tasty. I’ll rate that as a success in my book, especially since I only paid about 1200 yen for the pasta, a salad, a glass of wine, and some coffee.
Tomorrow is the Tokyo Game Show, where Parish and I will undoubtedly continue to regale you with our fascinating experiences with the local cuisine. Yes, you are indeed reading GameSpite, the world’s first culinary gaming blog.
See you next mission.
