    Mgm, duck plate #1 looks good. #2, not so much. For me, a blackberry sauce and sweet potatoes on the same plate=overkill.

    Happy New Year, Jews and friends/honorary members of the tribe. Let's feast now before we fast.

    had some good yakitori last night. here: http://r.tabelog.com/tokyo/A1307/A130702/13111237/

    Everything was good and the pieces of meat were big and well-cut, kind of forgot how rare they serve chicken breast here sometimes - it was basically raw, in fact they slip some chicken sashi into your green salad at this place. Drank a bunch of Yamazaki highballs to go with my food, and she had some rioja.

    Maybe I'm just an American slob raised on Purdue tortured chicken, but I don't think I'd enjoy rare chicken. Even at a yakitori place in Japan.

    It's pretty flavorful, they use shamo at a lot of these yakitori places in Japan. It's not a garden variety chicken, it's something a bit wilder I think, lineage of Thai gamecocks or something.
    The thighs are always nice and greasy, the breast is pretty clean and has a pretty supple bite and then you get into the middle and it's got the texture of fish. Tastes mild and clean and the mouthfeel is delicate.

    Even though I know that these chickens are raised the right way, I'd still be distracted worrying about less than delicate stomachfeel the next day.

    For those who have no idea what the fuck a Barbarian is:

    Barbajuan (also spelt Barbagiuan) is a typical Appetizer of the eastern part of French Riviera and the western part of the Italian Riviera. Mainly made in Ventimiglia (where the name takes its origins), Bordighera, Vallecrosia, Monaco, Roquebrune-Cap-Martin and Menton made with pasta or rice and green vegetables.

    Barbajuan ingredients: Filling: 1½-tsp olive oil 2 Tbsp finely chopped onion 2 Tbsp finely chopped leek (white part only) 2 Swiss chard leaves, stems & ribs removed, chopped ¾ cup chopped fresh spinach (about 1½ ounces) ½ tsp dried origano 2½ Tbsp ricotta cheese 1 Tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese 1 egg white, beaten to blend Vegetable oil (for deep frying) Pastry: 1½ cups all-purpose flour ½ tsp salt ¼ cup olive oil 1 egg, beaten to blend 3 Tbsp (or more) water

    Thank you, sir. This one was actually filled with pumpkin, leeks and parmesan. Think of them as fried pumpkin ravioli.

    Japanese food: Hotcakes, hamburgers and duck (goose, maybe) in Kyoto, Napoli-style pizza in Kobe.

    Is that a giant ball of butter on that pancake?

    What's in the second pic?

    Ice cream! Vanilla ice cream!

    The second one, with the crappy iphone pic, is hamburger with a demiglace sauce. It was much better than the pic would convey. Sauce was spot on for the balance of bitter, sour and sweet.
