I'm not either. Sometimes I would just point at a picture on the menu that looked cooked or once, another diner's plate. LOL. My personal preference is to avoid places with English menus as that suggests they somewhat cater to tourists.

We are in Silicon Valley where there are quite a few good Japanese restaurants and I worked for a Japanese company for quite a few years. My attempt to learn Japanese has mostly failed.

Most of the time we explore local food when traveling but occasionally it is nice to admit "I am a tourist" and would like food that is "normal" for me.
