Dagashi Bar is a mini-chain of 4 izakaya (Japanese gastropubs) in Tokyo that serve drinks and the usual cooked diehes that izakaya do, but they also offer all-you-can-eat old fashioned candies and other snacks that are called dagashi. So basically, you can stuff your face with all the cheap candy and snacks from your childhood that you want, while you enjoy a drink ot two. Their site is in Japanese only but you can find info on the web in English. http://www.dagashi-bar.com/

The Just Bento Cookbook got its first 2-star review on Amazon.com. I should be upset or something except that it's totally off the mark that it's kind of funny. Just in case.. no, most Japanese people are not vegan, they do eat meat, and fish is pretty big too. (Maybe this person has never heard of sushi...?) But on a positive note, getting its first 2-star review 2 1/2 years or so after publicaton is not too bed! Plus it's back in the no. 1 slot in the Japanese cookbook category. ^_^ (It has a 1-star on Amazon France... yeah I still read the reviews sometimes. ^_^;)

I got an odd attack of nostalgia for this commercial, which has been running on late night TV since at least the late '80s on local stations in the NYC area. I remember being somewhat mesmerized by the soulful eyes of the waitress who sings "Bigger Burgers"

Roll 'n Roaster is still going strong it seems! I've only been there once...I don't have a lot of connections to Brooklyn; I was more a Queens kinda person.

(I lived on Long Island for a couple years, and in various locations in and around NYC (mainly Manhattan, Queens, a best-forgotten year in Jersey City) for some years after that...to me NY is still my second hometown, even if my father is gone now.)

How to you feel when a restaurant you like lists themselves on Groupon or similar sites? It always worries me, that they're not doing well...and are going to be assaulted by the type of fault-finding one-timers that post bitter reviews on Yelp and such...

Did you know that mirin used to a a high class, expensive beverage rather than a cooking ingredient?

Savory soy sauce flavored rice crackers (senbei) coated with royal icing. One old time brand of these from the Edo period was called Hagoromo Senbei, rice crackers clad in white feathers. #dailypic
