Soup with Chopsticks

Only chopsticks for the noodles anyway. Three years of vegetarianism has gotten my system thoroughly voided of animal-processing machinery, and so I’m doing my best to avoid anything more than fish. Japanese fare, for providing the world of veganism a staple as vital as tofu, doesn’t really have any options to sustain a strict vegan-vegetarian diet, if that’s what you like. But it tastes good, and with more language practice, hopefully I’ll be able to navigate a menu more effectively.
