    My top is probably French and Thai and then in no particular order: any mediterranean, Vietnamese, Cajun, or Creole.
    Very honorable mention to some Eastern European dishes (Polish, Jewish, Hungarian etc) as I love cabbage in all of its forms, beets, potatoes, etc.
    Bulgogi just never grabbed me.

    If I could only eat one country's food it would be Thai.

    Japanese is up there too.

    Nagoya is an enormous city!
    I have some really good miso from there.
    It's black as tar.

    Yes to both.

    Fugu wasn't noteworthy.
    Whale was in curry so who knows what it tasted like.

    Natto gives many people trouble.
    Lots of people hate uni as well.
    I eat them both, too.

    In all seriousness though, the museum was weirdly enjoyable. Not because I'm some sadistic monster that loves seeing suffering and destruction but because the message of forgiveness and the resilience to keep moving forward were impressive. The fact that Hiroshima, which most people gasp at the suggestion of visiting, has rebuilt itself to be one of the prettiest cities I've been to in Japan was inspiring.
    True enough. But still I found I needed to take a break partway through, it was just overwhelming for me.

    Nagoya is a good city to settle in for those who want a more low key experience in my view because it feels less tourist orientated than Tokyo, Kyoto and Hiroshima. I certainly wasn't expecting to find a student of Peter Aerts, one of the greatest kickboxers of all time, there.

    I love Miso. Talking about picking up weird containers from Asia, the demilitarised zone at the border between North and South Korea had some weird stuff for sale.

    I managed to purchase some "North Korean Wine". I'd never drink it of course- it looks like muddy water mixed with excrement and a dose of red dye, but it's cool to have nonetheless.

    I tried whale a while back, when a friends Japanese wife got a food package from home and wanted to throw us all a proper Japanese dinner party. It was surprisingly sweet and not at all what I expected. It was a welcome flavour after lots of green tea jelly.
    Train hard, fight easy.
