Lunch on the mountain

Whats for lunch? Many people are interested to know what sort of food is available at the ski resorts in Japan. Today I was invited to taste some of the new selections at  the Happo One resort for this season. Who said there is no such thing as a free lunch? I had a sample of the burger, japanese curry, thai curry, fried chicken and tandoori chicken which were all very tasty. Happo One has many restaurants on mountain and scattered around the base. You can try sushi, kababs, thai, pizza, ramen, curries, austrian and you probably thought you could escape the golden arches but no, Mcdonalds is right in the middle of the hill at the gondola station. Don’t knock it too much as they actually serve up a good fresh burger better than any other maccas I have had. To add some balance you can go the other way and enjoy some fine dining with some of the best mountain views of any restaurant with the option to download from the lifts if you end up having a few too many wines. As part of my job here at the White Horse I have to try out all of the restaurants and am slowly building up my knowledge bank throughout the valley. It’s a tough job but hey, someone has to do it so our guests get the best advice on where to eat during their days on the mountain. For those that just want to ski in the morning I certainly have some some treats in store for you.  I hope you don’t mind me joining you.
