Here is the post from Scott-san:

Peter, you recommended that I use the Rikai.com website to help me read kanji. Actually, I’m using a plug-in for Firefox called “Rikaichan”. It does the same thing as going to rikai.com would, except all you have to do is right click on the page you need help with, and select “Enable Rikaichan”. No need to copy and paste any URL. :smile:


This is a must have plug-in for anyone studying Japanese and using Firefox. Check it out at http://www.polarcloud.com/rikaichan/

:grin:

I'm almost positive that this comment is not going to be read, but I wanted to start leaving my commentary anyway. I've been listening to you guys for less than a week. I have to admit, I'm quite the procrastinator at times, but I've already listened to over a months worth of Podcats because they are so funny and interesting. I can't seem to get enough!


I'm thirteen and I live in Colorado, USA. I told two of my best friends about the site, and we all are learning together. Again, even if this is never read, I want to start expressing my undying gratitude.


You guys rock!

Peter-san; They are delicious, aren't they. Unfortunately, it isnt rakkyou tabehoudai at cocoichi :( But it's kinda cheap. For 50 yen you get maybe 8 pieces. Theres a place called "Little Spoon". I've only been to a place up in sapporo(actually outside sapporo, near makomanai, if you are familiar), but I've seen a shop in shibuya too. Atleast up in sapporo they had rakkyou tabehoudai with their curry. Maybe they have that here too.


Speaking of abusing all you can eat offers, I always put a lot of shoga on my tondon, when I go to sukiya :)


As for videocast, sure :) count me in!

Jonas-san, Rakkyou!!!:shock: A gift from the gods! Is it all you can eat rakkyou at cocoichi's?? If so, consider me converted! I will abuse that free condiment, much worse the ginger (shoga) offered at the sushi places I frequent!

Rakkyou!!

As for the show, that would be great! We are thinking a cooking show, which we'll distribute as a videocast! Let me 打ち合わせ a little more with staff! But what do you think? :grin:

Peter-san; Yeah, I like the onion rings too! But I usually make my own, when I'm making tonkatsu. You kinda just do it the same way, as you do the tonkatsu.


I'm heading back to norway at the end of the month:cry: It sucks... But sure, I'd do a show :)


Ate the curry at a local shop. It's at Tokaidaigakumae(odakyu sen). As for the 1300g curry, never tried it. But I've heard about it. Sounds way too much, hehe. I'm usually fine with a normal serving. Going "oomori" I usually get very "kurushii".... man... my english is getting worse by the day! hehe


Anyways, cocoichi is one of my favorite curry shops :) Just love it... And put rakkyou on top! mmmmmm

Jonas-san, yes, we should warn people about the Mos Burger fries! However, their onion rings are first rate! You should see the looks I get when I put 3 or 4 on my Mos Spicy Cheese Burger.:shock: Outstanding!


When are you going back? We should get you to do a cooking show, before you head back! Show the world Jonas-san's tonkatsu!


Where did you eat the curry? Wow! As for Cocoichi's, I haven't been there in years. They used, maybe they still do, offer a 1.3 kilo serving of curry and if you finished it all in 20 minutes it was FREE! :grin: If not 1300 yen or something. Needless to say, this is how my attempt went: On the first bite I burned my tongue, as it was so hot, then I proceeded to eat curry for 15 minutes, without even making a dent!!!! With a burnt tongue, and after 15 minutes of eating curry, the taste was terrible! At 5 minutes left, I threw in the towel, and I had to pay for one of the worst experiences ever!:shock: For the longest time I thought cocoichi's was the worst curry ever! But, I had it once at a normal serving, and really enjoyed it!:grin: But for some reason, I am still haunted by the experience! It was bad. So bad, that when my best friend came to visit, I made him do it. :wink: Pretty much the same experience. :grin:


Maybe I'll stop by one in the near future!:grin:

Well, I'm not a really big eater, and I would never be able to eat a whole american "super size" set, but I still would like to get some more bang for my bucks at Mos. They are delicious though. Except the fries. They are like... average... I can make better fries myself:grin:


If you dont know how to make tonkatsu, i could explain. It is really easy :) just meat dipped in flour, egg and fry(the breadcrumish stuff), and then fried in oil. And tonkatsu sauce! Getting hungry.... but its 4am:shock:already?


I had curry today btw. Hottest one I ever tasted. The place I ate at had "hotness" from 1 to 150, and the guy who worked there said that 80 was about the same as cocoichi's 10. I had 150....


Well, night!

Jonas-san, yes, the see-saw game! Tricky to find the balance especially for people who are striving for more! You see I forgot English grammar!! :wink:Thank god for the internet!

Yes, that Mos Burger opinion is quite common! My friend came from the states, and he said the same thing. Am I the only one that doesn't see it?

Cooking, great idea! That sounds really fun. We could even do some video, now that's what I am talking about!

Tonkatsu, outstanding, and yes, that bulldog stuff is amazing. I had to quit, as I had 3 days in a row once and couldn't feel my tongue! But that is some very good stuff!


You too! Keep up the great work, and the proofing of our work, seems like we still need it! Actually, it's called sleep deprivation! We're up to something.:wink:

Peter-san; hmm, feels weird to add "san" to names when writing in english... oh well. anyways.. I know what you mean. My norwegian is getting worse and worse (汗). Hopefully, it'll get better when I get back home, and can speak on a daily basis... But then my japanese is gonna get worse again! help...!

Mos Burgers are great :) but they are so tiny! You need 2 burgers to get full. I'm also a fan of Freshness burger :)

How about a cooking lesson? Maybe once a week, or month or whatever, you could explain how to make some easy japanese dishes. Seems both you and I like japanese curry :) theres lots of words to learn.. like jagaimo, ninjin, ninniku, tamanegi, kare-ru-! etc. and verbs like nikomu, yuderu, ageru etc. Today I made tonkatsu by the way :) I just love the bull-dog tonkatsu sauce.


Keep it up!
