About 20 years ago, a friend visited Tokyo and told me of something called “nasty vomit sauce” at some dive down an alley in Shinjuku. I tried to find it today while I was stranded in Shinjuku.
“Sumimasen,” I said to passersby. “Nasuchivomitososuno restauranwa doko desuka?”
But they just bowed and acted embarrassed and rushed away.
“Iidesuyone!” I called after them, but I guess they all had a train to catch or something.
I’ll try again tomorrow. Somebody must know.
