I’m a breakfast all-day sort of person. Add that together with my frequent travel and an internal clock that doesn’t always catch up to the right time zone, and I’ll happy dig into an omelet or some eggs at all hours of the day.

After a quick nap that turned into a longer slumber, I called down to order some Tempura and Udon noodles for dinner. There was no separate button on the phone for room service, so I just called the operator who transferred me. Unfortunately, the Ritz-Carlton Kyoto’s highly-rated Mizun restaurant had closed at 9:30pm and it was 9:45. Drat, I had just missed it.
