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
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!
Shrimp and egg sushi along with cold salad
and pickled vegetables, slices of apple
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!
