So, naturally, I browsed this site looking for a dedicated food section w/recipes, etc., so as to learn how to make some Japanese dishes, save money, AND enjoy more of the culture.
How about this thread?

As for quantity, depending on where you eat, you can find meals that are pretty much the same size as in america. There's a monjuuyaki place near my house that has a 5 dollar monjuuyaki that even large americans would have trouble finishing off.
Anyhow, I hope that helps somewhat.

Capitul: Since you live in the States, I trust you have a Barnes & Noble, or a Borders nearby? I found a really fantastic cookbook before I left which uses ingredients that Japanese actually use to cook (mirin, daikon, etc--which can be tricky to find in the States)--I wanted to find a book like that, instead of one that uses ingredients that are easier to find here. The cookbook I found was a great deal (I think about 5$) and even described a lot of the ingredients that Americans might not be so familiar with. There are also lots of pictures, to help you recognize them in the store. ^_^
I highly suggest you go get a book like that--you'll learn a lot about Japanese cuisine, and you'll eat a lot healthier and cheaper that way!
