Mangetsu obsession
Posted on

This Lent I’ve found myself craving more and more for Mangetsu food, specifically fish.

I think the errors in the menu are very charming, especially “rapurapu,” and I mean this in the most respectful way. That tells me that a real Japanese chef (or staff member) did this menu, and the more I want to eat there now. I think the menu is very cute, but in no way am I LOLing at it like the person above. It always amazes me how the Japanese express themselves in 4 alphabets and are able to shift from their phonetic way of writing to reading Romaji with all our confusing vowels and consonants.

Ngek I thought my comment would be at the bottom if it’s the newest. By the “person above” I don’t mean you Cecile. I meant the commenter at the bottom of the page.
