Hawaii Trip #02: American Breakfast
We went to this coffee house one morning which almost everything I saw in there looked really American to me, it was like what I'd seen in many old American movies. I didn't see any other Japanese tourists in there (miraculously), we were the two aliens. It was exciting! It was "the" family restaurant (or famiresu in Japan), very authentic famiresu indeed. We have these American style restaurants in Japan everywhere like Denny's, but when they come to Japan they become too Japanese, if you know what I mean at all.... It's not the same. Waiters are too polite and robot-like in Japanese family restaurants.
Anyway, I do not know if this would be a typical American breakfast, but to me it seemed it was. It was HUGE (like everything else is) and was far too much for me I felt bad. But I surely did enjoy being in the American breakfast scene. It was cool, really cool.
