And they sure did know how to prepare
delicious meals using pork - sparingly - as a flavoring. Many, many,
many times I would pause in my exploration of this adventure land to
buy a "bento" from a side-of-the-road vendor.
Speaking much to their credit, never once did I get sick from eating anything I ever bought alongside the road or in cafes and restaurants... and I was an avid fan of those Okinawan Fast Food delicacies for 7 years!
