11/13/08 - Day 14 Part II: Food for Thought

Having added few bottles to my luggage, my priority was to get to the Airport ealry to unload. As the flight was scheduled for early afternoon, most of my time was spent inside the airport.

I picked up few books, walked through countless souvenier shops, and of course, hit the food court for lunch.

One of the great thing about Japanese restaurants is the visually-driven storefront menu. You see these at practically every restaurant.

These plastic models give you a very good idea of what to expect, and in fact, will make you hungry just looking at them - a tremendous marketing tool, if you ask me. I wonder why we don't have these in the States?

Since my first meal was ramen, I figured the last one be might as well. From symbolic standpoint, after a night of drinking, it is customary to finish with ramen - it's just that my night lasted 14 days. Scanning the menu, I decided on this ramen and curry set.

So, what did the real thing look like in comparison?

Not too bad, eh?
