  1. I did the same about a year ago. My last meal (literally on my way to the airport) was at Okan on Convoy. It's right next to Nijiya and the food there is authentic Japanese home cuisine. I now sit in bitterly cold Seattle, dreaming of that food!

    1. anything from Okan
      Yakitori Yakyudori
      mashed potato tacos and/or beef taquitos in spicy beef broth from Mama Testa's
      dry potato curry from Surati Farsan Mart
      sushi from Kaito
      half baked chocolate cake from Nine Ten
      corn, tomatoes, lettuce and strawberries from Chino Farms
      Venissimo cheese

      I know there's more but I have a headache right now.
