    Default "The Last Supper" Thread for 2015 JETs

    I created this thread because there will be food we love that is difficult or impossible to find in Japan.
    If you're heading to Japan this July/August, feel free to share what you plan on having as a last home country meal before you leave.
    Current Japan folks, what was your last meal if you remember?


    To add to my sickening pizza binge that started once I got shortlisted, I will be having Gino's pizza in Chicago along with a tall glass of rootbeer.

    Maybe I'll go Mexican... I'm gonna miss queso with the biggest passion. Cheese in general... But dat queso. Are margs a common drink of choice in Japan? Or am I gonna need a jumbo before I'm gone.

    I've also been chowing down on pizza even when I only occasionally had it previous to being shortlisted. It's like my body knows what it might be missing out on in a few months.

    But hoping to have a green chile sausage breakfast burrito at least once or twice in that last week so I hear you on the Mexican food, weepinbell.

    I actually think I might go for Mexican food, too. That or pizza. While it's fairly easy to get pizza in Japan (that was my go-to food last time when ever I got homesick), I'm pretty sure getting gluten-free pizza is going to be impossible.

    Maybe the day before I leave I'll go to an Indian buffet for lunch, too.

    Before I leave my hometown, I'm eating my weight in Jim n' Nicke BBQ and their famous cheddar cheese biscuits. Since I'm leaving out of Atlanta, my family and I will hit up a Persian restaurant because getting good chicken bargh and kashkebadumjan (fried eggplant dip) will pretty much be non-existant in Japan.

    These meals sound so beautiful I could cry.

    As I'm unfamiliar with Atlanta, I can't really say what I'll have the night before departure, but I'd also love to eat as much Mediterranean as possible... can't imagine there are too many gyros and falafel in Japan?

    I'm not sure what hotel we will be staying at before our departure, but if we are right by the ATL airport, there is a pretty good Mediterranean diner near the Hilton, if my memory serves me correctly.

    Margharitas are findable in my area, but the tequila is shitty.

    What's wrong with English, Irish, Welsh, Scottish, Jamaican, Canadian, Australian, New Zealander, South African, Trinidadian or Singaporean incomers sharing their last suppers?

    Margeritas are indeed plentiful. Cocktails are one thing that aren't a problem even in a relatively small town.

    Cereal. I don't think I'll miss anything as much as my morning crack.

    It wasn't really my official last meal, only because I had about a week to go before I left, but I went and ordered myself my greatest guilty pleasure. Dominoes.

    It was one of their deeper pizzas, and I got extra sauce and extra cheese, and I went to town on it. There was so much sauce that I felt like I was swimming in it, and all the extra cheese was so heavy that it kept getting pulled off. Eventually I just had to fork and knife it.

    I'm recreating that glorious moment of chub life when I go home, and I can't wait.

    You're the type of people that would request KFC or something for your "last meal" aren't you?

    That's usually where my friends and I go when we can't afford anything else.

    A medium or large pizza for $7.99-$9.99 depending on the day.

    Though it doesn't hold a candle to Mario's Pizza, that place is awesome... I just can't afford to go there xD.

    What would you have as a last meal?

    I know mine would involve shrimp.

    Probably barbecue ribs and etc.
