Last night Gavin and I visited Japantown's On the Bridge, a Tokyo-style fusion diner catering to young Japanese hipsters. It serves "Western" dishes like spaghetti and pizza but gives them an Eastern spin. On the Bridge is reminiscent of a 1950s diner with its bubble gum pink accents and long counter, but the anime on two t.v. screens and the piles of stuffed animals behind the counter are clues that you're not in Kansas anymore. While Gavin practiced his Japanese, ordering the adorable candy pink cranberry cocktail (top) and vegetable curry, I sipped smoky oolong tea, browsed through the collection of manga, and had my first ever plate of Japanese spaghetti--Flying Fish Roe Spaghetti (bottom), to be precise. I'll definitely be back--I'm anxious to try a slice of Japanese pizza.
