This is house made black garlic. This is not black originally.
I put in rice cooker for 2 weeks and make it.
This is fermented garlic. White turn to beige and turn to brown and turn to black.
This black garlic power is 10-50 times more than white garlic.
Must eat for your health.
It might work for diabetes, One of my customers is really happy with this garlic.

Taka Update December 14, 2016
Fish and More
It is almost the end of 2016. Tuna is big change. I used to buy big eye tuna but I could not get good one. So I started to buy Yellow fin tuna. Do I like yellow fin tuna? Not much. And I buy Blue fin tuna from Asia now. It is frozen product but the quality is high. I am checking how my customers say about this tuna. Frozen tuna is very common in Japan. And this is the good way to keep same quality of tuna all the time.
Uni is not bad but very few from California. I get Maine uni most of the time. And I buy occasionally buy Japanese uni, actually it is from Russia.
Live scallop is fine in winter time. The quality is high enough.
I carry typical winter items. Namako, sea cucumber is our winter dish. I will carry it by the end of year. And shirako, cod testicular is available as usual.
We have Kids friendly menu now. It is because of our current location. Our main target is family now. We make ½ portion ramen, chicken and more.
We start to carry Sapporo Beer. And we will finish to sell Kirin beer. We installed a new Hoshizaki Beer server machine. This is new technology, we can keep beer keg in room temperature. Beer goes through the machine and cold beer comes out. The foam is same as Japan, you can enjoy creamy foam.
It is same as usual. We are opened Christmas Eve, we are closed Christmas Day. We will close on 26th Monday lunch but will open dinner. We will close New Year Day. And we will close 2nd lunch but will open dinner. Please bring your families and friends.
We opened our new location in Sandy Springs on May 23rd. 6 months passed and the business is very up and down. It is good sometimes and terribly bad sometimes. But I feel I find our new direction and am moving forward with positive thinking. Many customers ask me “How is the business? “ And my answer is very honest, “Yes, it is yes or no, up and down daily. “ I do not think all people in town know we are here. And we get new customers every week and this is a good sign to grow. I go to customers table more than ever and try to talk. Owner chef is a top sales person always.
Anyway, Thank you for using Taka Sushi in 2016. Have a wonderful holiday!
