Breaking News: Good tuna just arrived.

We got a good big eye tuna this afternoon. I do not remember when was the last time.

This is not super excellent but cannot complain it.

It is because it really hard to get.

Albarino, New wine by the glass

It's the time for white wine. This is the our new white wine by the glass. Albarino is from Spain. But I think many people do not know. This is the sad thing of Spanish wines. It is because not much Spanish restaurants are available in town. Spain has great wines but not popular like Italian wine or French wine. French and French wine, Italian and Italian wine. See, Spanish? Where is Spanish restaurant here?

Blood Orange

Do you like this? I like it. I think the season is started. It is an orange but red color in it. The taste is very sweet.

Kashiwa Mochi, Pounding Rice with Sweet red bean

Let me introduce a seasonable food in Japan. Kashiwa mochi is for Boy's Day and is 5th of May. Is this the same day of Cinco De Mayo? We have girl's Day and is 3rd of March. We joke Gay's Day and is 4th of April. This is not much popular because we do not have much gay people in Japan. Even we have them, they are under ground and not like this city.
Go back to the story. Kashiwa is Daimyo Oak and see all over Japan. Oak leaves, until the sprouts grow from old leaves fall, fartility are said to be carrying a good luck.

Some places use leaves of China root.

We also have sakura mochi which is mochi with cherry leaves in Japan. This is our culture.

Mochi is meade from sweet rice. It is same cooking as regular rice and pond and make sticky.

Then, stuff braised sweetened red bean. This is called anko. An pan is bread with anko.
