Some things I've eaten lately.
Spare ribs (cooked twice) grilled florets with sesame seeds + gyukaku, sweet potato and Fluff
this sauce from the Japanese restaurant chain Gyu-kaku is stellar!
and I found it at Cherry Mart in Boston for only $4.19!
Gyu-kaku is a yaki-niku restaurant that has opened branches all over the US. I didn't even know about them until passing by one in Nagoya. Wish they were around here! [GyuKaku website]
Since coming back from Japan I've been really fascinated by the beauty of food presentation. Simple, small dishes, designed so you can see all the components, assembled like artwork. [food photos from our trip]
I really enjoy reading Shiori-chan's food blog. Even though her entire schtick is making lovely food for your boyfriend/husband, [ 彼ご飯 'kare'彼 + 'gohan'ごはん = "his meal"] it's not meant to send ladies back to the 50s. I think it's more about putting care into something you make. Some of hers...
