The combined meals were due to some scheduling conflicts. It was too late to have lunch and too early for dinner, so a fusion of both just made sense. We went to a popular shabu-shabu place called Onyasai. Not only do they have a vegetarian menu, they also served high quality vegetables. The soup bases you see below resembling a yinyang were spicy and soy-milk. It was really satisfying.

It’s almost the weekend! It’s going to be a sunny one at that so I’d probably be doing something interesting, hopefully, again.

Going on third week of being a vegetarian and I think I need to do something about why I have been feeling tired a lot lately. Maybe I need to take vitamin or protein supplements. Anyway, on to today’s dish.
This napolitan spaghetti reminds me of the one we had back home. It’s a little bit on the sweet side for my liking, but the saltiness of the egg certainly balances the entire dish.
