The snack du jour was a tai yaki from May's Coffee Shop in SF's Japantown. A fish-molded waffle with a crisp exterior and tender eggy inside stuffed with chocolate-y filling, $1.25.
Always see a table full of Japanese seniors and lots of families with kids munching on sweets. May's offers many inexpensive breakfast items, sandwiches, salads, ice cream, donuts, shave ice, and more. The saimin and loco moco sounded the most interesting to me --- what do 'hounds recommend?
