There’s a diner in Arlington, WA that sells giant cinnamon rolls. They are $5.99 and better than any I have baked myself. I get one every time I have the chance!

I saw this license plate on my way home the other day. Cool! It is a reference to Saber from the Japanese anime series, "Fate."

What Japanese Prison Food is Like

スレッド


In America, hospital food, public school lunches, and prison food is some of the least nutritious and most unappetizing food available. It looks like Japanese prison food is both nutritious and delicious. I am not surprised that Japanese prisoners eat well. America has a lot of poor quality food. I wish America had higher standards.

Japanese Curry

スレッド
I followed the recipe on the Go... I followed the recipe on the Golden Curry box and the curry tasted delicious.
It has already been close to 10 months since my trip to Tokyo. I bought Java Curry and Golden Curry from the local grocery store because I was feeling nostalgic. Co-workers tell me it is common to mix two brands of curry so that is why I bought two boxes from different brands. In Tokyo, I ate curry every day. My meal reminded me of Japan and only made me wish I was in Japan even more!

Hokkaido Milk Tea

Hokkaido Milk Tea
This weekend I went to the Boiling Point restaurant in Bellevue, WA for bubble tea. On the menu was "Hokkaido Milk Tea" which I think uses milk imported from Hokkaido, Japan. It was tasty!

Tokyo Curry

スレッド
Soba and curry Soba and curry
I went to Tokyo, Japan in April. My experience is hard to put into words, but I tell people I want to go back so they understand my general impression. When I see photos or videos that feature Tokyo or scenes from Japan, I feel an ache like the loss of a dear friend. My favorite foods from my trip were curry and katsudon. I ate curry every day, I think. Or, at least 5 times. I could not get enough of how fresh and bright the flavor was in combo with the warm and gooey texture. Pure comfort food. My favorite shop was C&C pork katsu curry near Tokyo station! Go! Go! Curry in Akihabara was popular but not my favorite. My favorite Katsudon came from a little shop between Ginza and Asakusa that I walked into at random. I would like to visit Tokyo again soon.

Savory Dutch Baby

スレッド
Bacon, cheddar cheese, and m... Bacon, cheddar cheese, and mushrooms.
Seattle has a restaurant popular for serving a dish called a "Dutch baby." They are basically egg pancakes and look like a cross between crepes and omelettes. Mine is not as fancy looking as Seattle's Tilikum place. I will have to work on the recipe and bake temperature to get more of a brown crust.

Nonetheless, this dutch baby in my mini cast iron skillet (5-inch skillet) hit the spot this Friday morning. I am particularly fond of the bacon and cheddar flavor combo!

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bake

スレッド
Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal ... Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal ...
Six months ago I purchased my first cast-iron skillet. Of all my kitchen tools, there are only three that I consider must-haves: a KitchenAid standing mixer, an Instant Pot pressure cooker, and a cast iron skillet. Since I only have to cook for myself, I picked up mini cast iron skillets the other day to make single serving desserts and egg bakes. Today, I broke in the mini skillet with a peanut butter and banana oatmeal bake. The texture was light and fluffy which made it seem like I was eating an oatmeal cake for breakfast. The bonus is that it's healthy. Highly recommended!

Recipe for a 5-inch mini skillet:

  • 40g (one serving) rolled oats

  • 1 egg

  • 1 over-ripe banana (about 90g to 100g)

  • 1.5 to 2 TB of peanut butter

  • 1 to 2 TB water or milk

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp vanilla

  • pinch of salt

  • butter for greasing the skillet



Directions:

  1. Set the oven to 300 degrees

  2. Add the egg, vanilla, water, half the banana, and 1 or more tablespoon of peanut butter together in a bowl. Blend together with an immersion blender, hand mixer, or whisk.

  3. Combine the oatmeal, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder in a separate bowl.

  4. Once both wet and dry materials are prepared, pour the dry oatmeal mix into the wet egg and banana-peanut butter mix and stir to combine.

  5. Melt some butter in the mini skillet and swirl it around to help prevent the oatmeal from sticking during baking.

  6. Pour the oatmeal mix into the mini skillet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.

  7. Top with remaining banana and peanut butter and serve warm.

Tsukushinbo is a Yelp-famous Japanese restaurant hidden in the center of Seattle's International District. For reasons unknown, Tskushinbo has no signage at all. If you were to walk past the building you would never know a restaurant was there. Except for the line of people, I guess. Aside from intentionally hiding their restaurant, Tsukushinbo customer service lacks care. On both visits, my waiter answered with curt replies and rushed away before I could ask them more than a single question. I felt like the staff was putting on appearances with friendly smiles when they otherwise treated me like I wasn't good enough to be in their restaurant... but, does customer service matter if I think their food is worth the indignation?

My goal to taste the best Japanese food in Seattle compelled me to wait in line for over one hour on a beautiful, but cold, morning in December. You see, the window of opportunity to try the highest-rated ramen in Seattle is as short as their customer service: Tsukushinbo only serves their Tokyo-style shoyu ramen on Fridays from noon to 2 pm. On my visit, the line started with me at 10:20 am and had already wrapped around the building 40 minutes later.

With confidence, I will declare that Tsukushinbo's ramen was the best ramen I have ever tasted in my life thus far. Living in America, I do not have a lot of options. However, of all the restaurants I have tried, Tskushinbo's ramen was just outstanding. After waiting in the cold for a little over an hour, the prize of a piping hot bowl of the best ramen I've ever had made me forgive the grief I endured to obtain it.

The sushi served at Tsukushinbo is expertly prepared with huge pieces of fish, which is another win for them.

If you get the chance, I would recommend Tskushinbo for their high-quality food despite their sub-par manners. Your efforts to get in will be rewarded.
