What LA Thinks Japanese Food Is Vs. What Japanese Really Eat

I admit that when I first saw the title of this LA Weekly article, “L.A.’s Idea of Japanese Food vs. What Japanese Really Eat,” I wanted to hate on it. Say that the writer Andrew Froug was wrong and didn’t know what he was talking about.

However, no matter how many times I read the article, I couldn’t find anything that I disagreed with. So instead of doing that, let’s just say that this is a great article to read if you want a brief but accurate insight into Japanese cuisine.
