Kagoshima Airport Cafeteria

Kagoshima Japan is known for great food and hard liquor. There is no denying that.

But I gotta say, when the airport cafeteria makes you scratch your head and say "WOW", you really know you are somewhere special.

This Kagoshima Berkshire Pork Katsu Curry (鹿児島産黒毛カツカレー) completely blew my mind.
Floured in larger panko breadcrumbs making for a bigger crunch, juxtaposed with succulent fatty Berkshire pork, perfectly cooked rice, garnished with a few raisins and fried shallots, and ultimately topped with a curry sauce that would make the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo jealous, I was just in complete mercy.

I loved this dish from beginning to end.
It was truly the taste of perfection.

Perhaps the best joys in life are the simple and unexpected ones you run into ever so often.
