This Brie is tasty.



I like cheese but not try to eat much. The reason is simple, easy to gain weight for me.

But this brie is so good and eat half of it at a time.

This cheese is made in France and no question how taste is great.

I tried many times cheeses made in USA, not qualified.

Japanese French Fry, Must Try!

I want you try this food.
I named it Japanese French fry.
This is not a new food, it is just ordinary Japanese food.
But I cut small and made it like French fry.
It is Gobo tempura. Gobo is a long root and we eat root part.
Need Fiber? Gobo is perfect.
Need crunchy? Gobo is perfect.
Gobo is much much healthier than French fry.

What I found at H mart




The last post was May 19th?

I am not lazy, was just busy and got sick and was not the mood to post new photos.


Many people asked me about H mart, Asian supermarket.


My answer is YES and NO.

If you buy vegetables, meat and fruits, do not buy. Their prices are great and low but quality is really bad. I bought Asian pear before, bought lettuce before and was big regrets.


But if you but something like pictures, H mart is a great spot.


I have no idea what they say in Korean but their soy milk is tasty and good.

The black container is something like black soybean milk, this is really good.

I buy a case unit always.

Banana milk is also good. I think this is good for kids.

We have similar drink in Japan.


Juts buy them even if you don't understand. It is fun to taste.

Air fare is very high this summer and can save money here in Atlanta. We have so many Asian foods and can reach. We do not need to fly over.

Cha Soba, Green tea soba



This is cha soba, green tea soba.

This is for cold soba only.

Taste? You feel some green tea flavor.

And maybe feel like eating healthy thing.

Good tuna just arrived.



I received great tuna today.

It is bigeye and stomach side.

I can sell this tonight.

Open HOuse? This is my practice place.



This is the first time to show you my golf practice place.

This is my back yard.

I can do 10-20 yards approaching practice.

This time, I cut 2 different lengths and do more actual practice.

I never thought this idea.

We will see this Sunday. We have Japanese Chamber commerce tournament and 70 people join.

Tobi Uo, Flying fish

I got this last year and came back this year again.

The meat is lean and no fat. If you are on diet, the best fish for you.
Think of it, a fat flying fish cannot fly more than 100yards.

Summer items




It is hot summer.

But do not worry about that.

I have special dishes for you.


1) Sangria

I believe TAKA is the only Japanese restaurant serves sangria in the USA.

We have red, white, plum and sake. The price is $6.50. Cool your body.


2)Gazpacho

I believe TAKA is the only Japanese restaurant serves gazpacho.

I put some secret ingredients and tastes good.

I shot 86 and this is a secret.

It was great Sunday golf.
I shot 86, 43 and 43.
I ate this dish for breakfast. I never had steak for breakfast.
But I needed to keep my power for golf game.
I try to eat more protein, but fish protein.
And Japanese curry makes my brain decision clear.
I am looking for below 85 this weekend.

New White wines from France

From Right

1) Chablis, Domaine de Malandes 2009

2) Bordeaux Blanc, Chateau Guiraud 2009

3) Colombard Sauvignon, Domaine de Menard 2009

They are really good.

Inside of Ice Machine

I just cleaned our ice machine.
It needs to be clean always. I normally do every month.
We see so many moss when we open the cover.
Yes, this is dirty and moist place.
I think I am a kind of good person and try to clean it.
But some places are lazy and they do not clean at all.
That is one of the reason I do not drink any of tap water.
I trust bottled water. But I do not drink Dasani.
I like natural spring water.
Anyway, our ice is clean and safe.
Ask someone who owns restaurants. How often they clean ice machines?

AYU, there is no English name.



We start to sell ayu, Sweet fish?

As I check it, there is no English name.

It is a big family of carp, but ayu is a group of ayu.

This fish is not for sushi, sashimi. It is grilled fish with salt.

Summer is coming when we see ayu.
