    There is the full English breakfast. around in one form or another for roughly 700 years. It seems that since the Edwardian period the in ingredients have been standardized to include eggs.

    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    Thanks for your perspective. In my own experience, some of my harshest teachers have been those who made the most difference. I didn't usually like it at the time, but upon reflection found they were the ones that had the ability to draw out the best. It is my hope that the NSK doesn't PC its way into universal mediocracy.

    July basho?

    It depends on the stand. There are some really great take-away stands, some average, and some you can't even appreciate drunk. But I'd agree that for variety of skewers and atmosphere, a proper restaurant is da bomb.
