It worked well for me.
Not doctoral level, just not speaking gibberish level

I don't think so, which actually is curious since there are no liquor licenses here - you want to start a bar? just buy booze wholesale (you can even import it yourself) and start selling to any adult member of the public who wishes to buy, at any hour of the day or night.

When I was a kid in college I spent some time traveling Europe and then a semester of college in York England. I regret being so young and eating at too many Pizza Hut's and McDonalds.

My favorite thing about traveling now is experiencing the local cuisine. Whether regional in the US, or international. I still dream about the tacos from the food cart outside the ADO station in Playa. It's part of what keeps me coming back to Tulum. I'm a sucker for a great taco al pastor.

I plan to discover numerous hole in the wall izakaya's in japan and look forward to experiencing new things. If I can't understand the menu, I have learned how to say "I'll have what they are having" in Japanese.

We found a lot of the restaurants there have "Pointy Talky" menus. Pictures of what you are ordering. Except many times what LOOKS like one thing, shows up as something different! We stopped once because we saw what looked like really good chocolate pastries. When we took the first bite, we were shocked. The "chocolate" was bean curd!
