I was very hungry for Japanese Curry. I am always hungry for something though. Anyway, Japanese curry is very different from Indian and Thai. It's just like creamy stew. Easy to make, because usually we use roux you can buy at store. I made some extra which means I can eat more tomorrow!
I realized how much I had missed Japanese food! (something I can't make at home). Kaki Furai (breaded deep-fried Oyster)!!!!! So delicious. I should come back for the oyster once in a month at least. I want to have it once in a week, but you know .... my paycheck doesn't allow me. Anyway I enjoyed the meal a lot. I am looking for to visit Kiku next month!
An-kimo (monkfish liver) - I know it sounds gross. If you like pâté, you might enjoy it.
I like this meal, cooked nappa cabbage and ground pork. Just put them in layer. I don't need add water. Nappa cabbage makes tons of juice. Today, I had Shimp Bao (from Trader Joe) on the side. hmmmm, I won't buy it again.
Very Japanese! I was hungry for Kimpira which is stir-fried burdock. It's one of traditional Japanese meal. I think it's first time to buy burdock in U.S. and I just realized how much I liked it. I will buy it again when I went to Asian grocery story next time.
When did I have beef last time?? So I decided to have steak for dinner. I got grass-fed beef. What a good timing! It was tender. I enjoyed it a lot. I had grilled parsnip and kale salad for side. Parsnip! I had not had it before. I liked it. I might prefer parsnip to french- fry for side. J made Kale Salad. It was awesome. I usually cook kale and do not have it as salad. He added fig and cheese and it worked very good.
Today's wine - I like zinfandel, but not this one. I won't buy this again.
It's restaurant week. Franktuary joined the restaurant week, but I just ordered food from regular menu. $20 for Hotdogs? I don't think so. Even they would serve a lot. Actually it cost us less than $30 for 2 people. ( I didn't drink though). If I go back there?? I am not sure. Hotdogs were good but I don't know how often I get hungry for hotdogs.
Seasonal Soup - I forgot what it was, but it's really good. I can come back for the soup!
Standard Sausage with Grass-fed Beef Chili, Onion and Relish
I have been to Coca Café for Brunch. It was good but it's very busy. This time I tried for dinner. As They don't have liquor license, I brought wine (I forgot the corkage fee). Anyway I enjoyed the meal a lot. The portion was just right size. I don't like huge meal. Fortunately it was not busy at all. I guess it was too early to get busy? Def. I'll be back for dinner.
Cheese Plate - I loved them all. Esp. Redcat and goldenboy were great.
