Présentation de l'éditeur

This is a revised version of the long-selling Kodansha International title, updated in many places to include all the new areas of interest in Japanese food. It is designed to help those travelling to Japan, as well to help the many visitors to Japanese restaurants worldwide who would like more knowledge about the restaurants, the menus and the ordering process in the Japanese language. The purpose of this book is to act as both a translator and a tour guide to the world of Japanese food, explaining not only what to order but also how to order it. By referring to the sample menus, restaurant goers can immediately read and understand most Japanese menus, even if they can't speak a word of Japanese. This book, however, also introduces the many interesting specialty cuisines of Japan, explaining the different cooking styles and ingredients used. It offers insights into culinary customs and history, as well as some of the finer points of food preparation. It also includes an extensive phrase section that can be used in restaurants, and a special glossary filled with food terms and their corresponding Japanese characters, making this a comprehensive reference source as well as an easy-to-use introductory guide. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Très bon livre à emporter quand vous allez manger au restaurant au Japon.
C'est classé par type de restaurant ce qui est très pratique. Fini les commandes à l'aveuglette, avec ce livre vous serez capable de traduire les plats qui sont proposés.
Indispensable et beaucoup plus pratique d'un dictionnaire!

HASH(0x9f6e8be8) étoiles sur 5 As indispensable as any map or guide book 6 juin 2002
Par Zack Davisson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If you are going on a trip to Japan, take "What's What in Japanese Restaurants" with you. It is a handy, pocket-sized reference book that will save you many a stomach-ache and hopefully let you discover many a good taste. Not all strange Japanese food is to be feared!
The guide outlines many of the main Japanese foods, a few ways to eat them and some simple restaurant etiquette. The food are named in both English and Japanese, with the Japanese written in Katakana and Hiragana. This is important, as most Japanese menus will not contain an English translation.
The books small size is most convenient, as luggage space can be at a premium. In the end, you will be glad you brought this book along.

HASH(0x9f6e8ef4) étoiles sur 5 Downsized? 21 juin 2004
Par E M Smid - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I found the content of this book very interesting. It's a complete guide to the different restaurants and other eating spots you might find in Japan. The familiar sushi, tempura and teppanyaki are just a few of them. Also there is information on the big regional differences and on ethnic cuisine (Korean minority).
But, unlike Japanese dishes, the visual aspect of this book is poor. Either out of cost effectiveness or to scale it down to pocket size. Type is small and any Japanese character with more than 5 strokes is absolutely illegable.
The different kinds of counting are not explained, but phrases as 'please, turn up/down the flame' and 'please turn off the burner' are translated at the end of almost every chapter.
Worst of all, the text refers often to a chart of the Japanese syllables inside front and back cover. But it simply is not there!
It looks like a inexpencive reprint, that makes me wanting the original version. Less content and bigger type would work wonders for this unique book.

HASH(0x9f81a084) étoiles sur 5 Useful and accurate. 12 novembre 1999
Par Pat Rund (rund@tctc.com) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I used this book during a business trip to Japan and found it very useful and accurate, both in and outside of Tokyo. The descriptions of the types of food were helpful, as were the prices (even though the exchange rate has deteriorated). I would recommend this book to anyone who has questions about Japanese food.

HASH(0x9f81a45c) étoiles sur 5 I CONSIDER MYSELF TO BE ADVENTUROUS EATER HOWEVER EVEN I 28 mars 2000
Par T. Reinhardt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
HAVE MY LIMITS AND WITH THIS BOOK I FOUND IT VERY EASY TO ORDER FOOD THAT I KNOW I WILL ENJOY! It can be intimidating to order food of other cultures and having this book helps alot. While I know that the resturant staff TRULY do their best to describe menu items there can still be problems (i.e. busy staff, language barriers etc. I found this book able to make my dining much more enjoyable as i can experiment with new foods while avoiding something that I am not interested in eating at all. ALSO NOTE: IF YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO EAT JAPANESE FOOD BUT ARE TOO IMTIMIDATED BY ALL THE CHOICES, NAMES, AND INGREDIENTS THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU.

HASH(0x9f81a558) étoiles sur 5 An indispensable book for anyone travelling to Japan 9 octobre 1997
Par rosemary@effect.net.au - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Ever ordered raw chicken platter or cow's stomach when you couldn't read the menu? I have, and it's a very unpleasant experience eating it with the whole staff watching and laughing.
With 'What's What in Japanese Restaurants' in your pocket this will never happen to you. Robb Satterwhite has written an indispensable book for anyone travelling to Japan for the 1st or even the 30th time. The book is divided into sections detailing regional styles, types of food, etc., and each section gives the Japanese characters that you will find on the menu, a transliteration into Roman characters and an explanation of the dish. He talks about diferent types of eating places, from standup noodle stalls to the VERY exclusive Japanese traditional restaurant. Included also are useful phrases for dining and there's even a section on drinking. He touches on etiquette and finishes with a glossary of terms. This is the most comprehensive book on eating in Japan that I have come across in more than 20 years of travelling to and fro. An absolute must buy.
