San Francisco, September 16, 2015—WE SPENT MUCH of the day at the Exploratorium, and developed an appetite along the way. On our last visit we ate in the "restaurant"; this time we were content — and better off, I think — at the little café near the entrance.
Of the half-dozen substantial dishes on the blackboard, it was the Katsudon that appealed the most to me. A pork cutlet, breaded and fried and sliced into manageable strips, with egg — as a batter, I suppose, before a second cooking — served with leaves of a green I don't know, and some shreds of pickled pepper, on an enormous serving of boiled rice. Not my normal sort of eating, but not bad at all: and now back into the Exploratorium fray…
