Here is the 海苔 – のり – nori (shredded and formed seaweed) shelf in a local supermarket.

In this photo alone, you can see over a dozen varieties, and you can tell the shelf is in need of restocking.

Japanese people eat a lot of seaweed, let me tell you.

I can also tell you the names of the kinds I don’t like, and ways to prepare it that taste like slimy, salty rubber.

Japanese burrito

You can’t really get Mexican food here, but these things are available in most grocery stores.

It’s basically a big fat sushi roll with sandwich-like innards (lettuce, chicken, egg, and some fixin’s in this case) that you eat like a burrito.
