French food in japan

Dec 2001
One of my japanese friends welcomed me when i landed in Tokyo and took me for a few hours to a snack restaurant in Ueno before I take the connecting flight to Kumamoto. On the center of the menu she's poiting at something called "french cuisine". Well, it's actually a toast of french strong cheese (Camembert) with strawberry jam on it. Believe me, non french people reading it : I've never seen such an association of tastes in my homecountry !
Une de mes amies japonaises m'a accueilli à ma descente de l'avion à Tokyo m'a emmené quelques heures dans un restaurant à snacks dans Ueno avant de m'envoller pour Kumamoto. Au centre du menu, elle montre un plat nommé "cuisine française". Il s'agit en fait d'un toast "camembert - confiture de fraises"...
