After work, we were to have dinner with a lot of other researchers who had also just arrived in Tokyo. One of them was vegetarian, but my boss kept ordering things like mostly dead squids, fish eggs, eel, etc. I discreetly mentioned that maybe we should order something vegetarian, since this guest did not eat fish. My boss then asked him: "Would you prefer the chicken salad or the fish salad?" ... Well, he ate neither chicken (not surprising) nor fish.
We ended up ordering something called cheese salad. Which contained lots of chicken.
