The number of Japanese food restaurants is increasing overseas.
In 2019, the number of overseas Japanese food restaurants reached about 156.2 thousand, an almost three fold increase from 2013.https://www.maff.go.jp/j/wpaper/w_maff/r1/attach/pdf/index-1.pdf
I went to a Japanese food restaurant in Europe, but what surprised me was even though it was a set meal ‘TEISHOKU’, it came out in the order of soup, appetizer, and main dish.
In Japan, it is common that soup, appetizer, and main dishes are served at the same time for a set meal ‘TEISHOKU’. I have a habit of eating rice and miso soup together, so I couldn’t get used to being served one by one.
