Tokyo Bar

If you're in NY, you should check out the Chopsticks NY magazine. There are tons of listings of restaurants and such through which I've found Tokyo Bar plus a few other places that I plan to visit.

SO if you're craving some good Japanese "comfort food" try Tokyo Bar. A and I saw an ad for Tokyo Bar and decided to try their early bird dinner special. Both of us chose an omu-rice and a green tea dessert. It was really filling and most definitely worth the money :D

Mango Panna Cotta

I've been meaning to make another panna cotta since the last one I did wasn't much of a success. So I took this recipe and replaced the lemon rind with mango puree then topped it with... mango chunks. Forgive my shitty picture quality; I don't know what I did to the camera but it's blurry even after I wiped it with a lens cloth.

Independence Day

I was at the Nathan's hotdog eating contest with a few friends yesterday. Basically... Kobayashi won 2nd place again with Joey Chestnut first; both ate 59 hotdogs in 10 minutes but Kobayashi lost by 7 seconds.
Plus there were SO MANY fans of K. there cheering including us. Wherever we moved, there was some amount of Japanese women cheering for K.
So yeah. \o/ Kobayashi was really cool about it even thanking people for supporting him and his last words: "I love you guys" :DDDD
We headed towards the beach afterwards, had a small picnic and frolicked in the water (and got a tan DX).
