Phew, I am so happy to be starting up a new week. Last I had a couple of crazy a** days. I’m pretty laid back 99% of the time, but there are certain things that really irk me. Any who, this weekend was really fun and relaxing!!!
On Saturday, we lucked out and got a chance to try some of the Japanese goodies during the Fall Gourmet Food Fair @ Mitsuwa.
The line for the Okonomiyaki (Osaka Style) was about 10 ppl deep, but that didn’t deter me from waiting. =)
Then we had “waffles” from “Kobe-Fugetsudo. These yummy “waffles” were sooo delicious! You can choose from an assortment of “waffles” filled with custard, matcha red bean paste, and chestnut cream. Jp went with the matcha & azuki bean and I got the chestnut one.
As you can see from my previous entries, we definitely love to eat! One of the most satisfying meals has to be a home cooked one. Some days I cook from Jean Georges book, and other days I prefer something Asian. Japanese, Vietnamese, Chinese, you name it, I can cook it! Btw…all of these ingredients can be found at Mitsuwa, Nigiya, or Murakai (Japanese grocery stores).
Soooo, today for dinner, here is what I cooked:
Cold Tofu, topped with daikon, ginger, bonito flakes, and japanese chives (nira)
Organic Green Tea Soba Noodle, topped with toasted seaweed & served w/warm dipping sauce
Broiled Hamachi Kama (Fish) w/citrus ponzu sauce
