Japan Niigata Food

6 November 2019

Still quiet

Hunting for dinner in Furumachi

Niigata has no people.
Well the station area does, but the Furumachi area, at night, has basically none.

Apparently its the red light district, its mainly private bars that do not want any new customers and a few sit on the floor restaurants with closed sliding doors and no menus. Basically they made it as uninviting as possible.
As far as it being a red light district goes, I saw signs, they had one of those Yakuza collecting a commission INFORMATION shops that give out tips on where to find debauchery. I imagine the tip was to give up and go home.

I was determined to find a dinner that was not curry and was not ramen, there were a couple of options for those, I really just wanted hot soba and tempura vegetables, but I could not even find that. Eventually I found something. I couldnt keep looking for any longer, my legs are giving out!

Heres my dinner. It was tiny and quite expensive. It is not curry or ramen. It came from Royal Host, which you can find all over Japan. I nearly got some kind of baked stew with cheese on top, but they were nice enough to show how many calories were in each item. 1200 calories in cheesey stew! Only 600 calories in my tiny pork thing with vegetables.
