Bite-sized Japanter - N°21

BSJ No. 21 - the Japanese have a meat and potatoes dish with a very uninteresting name: lit: "meat potato". Except it's not that interesting because the Japanese name is "niku-jaga" or, as I have been hearing since I arrived "Mick Jagger".

I asked one of my employers about this when one of the kids mentioned she'd eaten Mick Jagger. The kids, of course, had never heard of him, but a glazed look came over my employer's eyes. The only explanation she offered was how handsome (kakoi!) he is. Delicious too!
