Handwritten in pencil, no less. Every thing in it. I'd love to hold this in my hands. Rather than one of those new-fangled electronic whizbang tablets or iPads or whatever is fashionable in some places nowadays.

A lot of restaurants in Japan write the menu every day, in ink.

True. It would be nice if that was commonplace in the US. (Well, daily menus written on the chalkboard or the daily printed menu at high-end places sort-of resemble these hand-written menus but it somehow doesn't resonate the same way... :smile: )
