龍鳳 (Ryuho in Fukushima)

龍鳳

To be honest, I'm not sure how I ended up here.

I tried to go to this shop, in the heart of Fukushima City, but they were closed for the night. I also tried to go to the Filipino show club next door, but was told that they don't accept gaijins.

Somehow ended up at a bar named after my drinking buddy's boyfriend, where another customer marked his favorite shop on my map. If I recall, he then guided us there, through the bustling streets of downtown Fukushima.

Rajanmen, a spicy, Chinese style dish.

It was spicy and hot and thick and sweet. Just what I needed at the time, though all that added sugar didn't help the next morning's hangover one bit.

Apparently, the waitress at this shop gave me some of her recommendations. Now that's service!

Fun little town around Fukushima Station.

"Doesn't accept Gaijins" LOL. Happened to me twice while I was in Japan earlier this year.

"Doesn't accept Gaijins" .. How do you deal with that kind of stuff? Do you get that a lot?
Honestly, I would name the shop so we other gaijins can avoid it!

It was a Japanese-style Filipino strip club. Most water trade places don't accept foreigners.
