Hiroshima is HOT!

Not only is Costco opening in March 2013, Michelin is publishing their fourth guide in Japan, for the Hiroshima area. Who else is excited? I would have thought other larger cities would have been the next target, or even Fukuoka and Kyushu. They must be feeling diss'ed.

  1. Wine pairings with okonomiyaki...was my first thought...But yeah, Fukuoka or Kyushu general or even Kanazawa/Takayama are two areas I would have thought to be in line for coverage...But anyway, go Carp go!

    1. re: Silverjay

      My first reaction is sake pairings with Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki. Hiroshima sake largely has its own style, marked by a rather soft mouthfeel. Of course, that sake goes well with oysters also.

    2. Who needs Michelin Hiroshima when we have E Eto in the house? Just curious - what's a Japan Costco like compared to a typical Costco in SoCal? When my cousin told me that Hiroshima was getting a Costco and couldn't wait, I told her she was going to need a bigger house...
