    Unfortunately not an actual cooking program, it's a Japanese language instruction program where I occasionally cook while demonstrating vocab!! My request for a cooking spin-off was denied because I'm actually not that good haha

    It's fresh shimeji mushrooms, ground daikon radish, and a konbu-based broth

    I was in HCMC earlier this year and stumbled upon this noodle place near Snail Street. Not sure what they sell cos they didn't have a menu. Had a pork rice noodle (pork pho?) and the broth was sick. I could use a huge bowl of that and bun bo hue right now.

    Went to Hakata Tonton in NYC last night, which was delicious. You get a Big hot pot and after you've eaten everything in it you add eggs and rice or noodles and they cook it down. They also don't accept tips which was interesting for America.

    Oh and the dessert was good too.

    as a wannabe amateur baker I really appreciate the scenes where he's baking his loaves. As a butter-hater, however, I'm not so thrilled with the rest

    You need butter for baking, just like you need fat for flavour in meat.

    There's famous cooking show on tv here, which catchphrase is "plenty of butter".

    of course I use butter for baking, I just meant I hate is as a garnish, tastes gross to me (I also dislike milk as a drink)

    Spent the long weekend in Sapporo with a friend and basically went on a 24 hour miso ramen binge after looking up some of the famous shops. Even though I went at weird hours there was always a line out the door at every place.

    First stop in the evening after I got off the plane was Sumire, one of the original shops that made Sapporo's miso ramen so famous. Easily the best miso ramen and broth I've ever had, perfect balance of oil and other flavors (especially the ginger). My only regret is not ordering extra chashu to go on top.

    Took a small break the next morning and went to the fish market for breakfast.

    [​IMG]

    Back to ramen for lunch at Ichi Ryu An. Took forever to find since it was in the basement of some unmarked office building and only had 8 seats. Overall it was a really well put together bowl with some really nice high quality ingredients. Felt like a slightly modern take on traditional greasy street ramen. Cool atmosphere too, played a mix of Beatles songs while we ate.

    [​IMG]

    Dinner was at Junren, Sumire's sister shop, and pretty much the only place that was open at 9pm when we finally felt hungry enough to eat again. Still had to wait almost half an hour to be seated though. I also made the huge mistake of accidentally ordering the large bowl from the ticket machine that takes your order. You can't really tell in the picture, but I'm pretty sure the bowl was a ridiculous 10" in diameter. It was also the oiliest and heaviest soup of the three. Definitely the worst possible choice to accidentally get a large bowl in. Delicious, but after finishing the entire bowl it was all I could do to get back to the hotel and food coma until my morning flight back to Tokyo.

    [​IMG]

    Basically swore off ramen for at least a week right after that experience.

    Walked by an abura soba place on the way home from work today and couldn't resist.

    I may have a problem.

    How much is an avocado in the state? How much is a lime? Where do they come from?

    My Mexican limes and avocados are up to $2 apiece for conventional, $3-4 for organic, double what they were last year

    European limes come from SA and 90% of the cost is shipping.

    yikes. I live 2 blocks away from a Hispanic-oriented supermarket (http://www.fiestamart.com/) and I definitely take for granted how easy it is for me to get that stuff at decent prices
