Personal Notes:
Gourmet Club: Japanese Dinner.

According to the notes included with this menu, in Japan, it is customary that you finish any rice you take. The legend is that any remaining grain may become a wart on a loved ones face. However, leave a spoonful of rice in your bowl if you want more rice.
