Home-style Tempura

Sunday evening Joe and I were treated to a true Japanese meal at out neighbors' place. Unlike the overly batter-y version in U.S. restaurants, Sayaka's tempura is just dusted with a crispy coating. She fried gyoza, salmon, okra, brocoli, mushrooms and chicken. What a treat! Taizo made Osaka-style okinomiyaki, which was Joe's favorite part of the meal.
Here's our lovely host and hostess. Taizo came to the U.S. because his job with Autotech brought him here. Joe and I have really enjoyed getting to know our neighbors from other countries.
