How Japanese are you? - the quiz
Japanese people are known to be.... many things 😉
Find out how Japanese you are!
- You're in a fairly long queue and your phone is entertaining you, but wait, someone has just sneaked in in front of you. What do you do?
A Gently pat them on the shoulder and let them know where the end of the queue is, in case they missed it
B Make loud remarks about rude queue-cutting people to yourself
C Pretend not to notice and hope the people behind you don't either
- You find a scarf on the pavement.
A Ah just what you needed, let's wrap it around
B No touching, never know where it could have been
C Tie it to the nearest fence, so it doesn't fly away or get trodden on and the person who dropped it could easily find it if they come looking for it
- Yey your favourite cafe has opened a new branch just around the corner from you. Their fluffy Japanese soufflé pancakes are to die for! hold on, I ordered matcha latté (my all time favourite), not hojicha latté (my third favourite)... I do love both but...
A I have to ask for my correct order, I've waited too long to not have it perfect
B I'll check if it was intended for another table, and if not I say 'Never mind but I won't pay for it'
C They're so busy, I won't make a fuss
- You're volunteering at a beer tasting event at your local pub
A You try to get away with as little effort as possible
B You decide you're not well on the day and ghost
C You come early and work hard as a bee, and you leave your area cleaner than it was when you arrived
- Your neighbours are having a garden party, it looks like so much fun...
A Let's knock on their door and fish for an invite
B I'll fiddle about in my own garden hoping they see me and ask me to join
C I'll take occasional peeks out my window and observe

Or join us for a satisfying midday replenishment of a special lunch set of the day. Pictured centre, this day we served mackerel cooked in miso, served with fresh miso soup, steamed Japanese rice, and pickles. *Fluffy Japanese rice can be achieved relatively easily at home with any old pan you have as long as it has a lid.
