Japanese Sushi

Panajachel, Guatemala

Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

What is refreshing many times in these foreign countries is the entrepreneurial spirit we see. Previously the competition to another Japanese restaurant and located just outside of town, this man and his wife chose to close their establishment and begin to work out of their home and offer home delivery of their cuisine.

Billy often sees this man in the morning at his regular coffee shop, sipping a cappuccino. Billy will say "Ohai-yo" to him politely. "Ohai-yo" is short for "Ohayo Gozaimasu" meaning "Good Morning," and the only Japanese Billy knows. This man, who only speaks Japanese and Spanish replies back enthusiastically, "Ohai-yo!"

 

Mr. "Ohai-yo" with his motorbike and carrying box

One day, Mr. "Ohai-yo" gave Billy a menu for Japanese take out from his restaurant. A few days later, we gave his home delivery service a try.

Take out menu with 9 items listed plus sushi and tempura

We called the number listed on the menu and ordered a couple of meals. In order to introduce himself to the driver, who answered the phone, Billy says, "Ohai-ho!" Right away the man recognizes Billy as the man from the coffee shop and begins to laugh. Billy gives him the address and room number to our hotel. Fifteen to twenty minutes later, Mr. "Ohai-yo" is at our door.

Pork and vegetables, with salad, picked vegetables, rice and chop sticks

 

We spent 40 Quetzales for each of our meals ($5USD) which were wrapped individually and piping hot. The salad and pickled vegetables were refreshingly cold. The meal was both tasty and filling.

Tempura with pickled vegetables, rice and salad

The tempura was light, not greasy and delicious! We received shrimp, fish and vegetables all battered with their tempura recipe along with soy sauce in containers. Scrumptious!

Mr. "Ohai-yo" has taught us two more phrases in Japanese: Kon'nichiwa (good afternoon) and Sayonara (good bye).

Consistently good food, fast service and decent pricing, we can recommend this delivery service to anyone!
