Aconteceu no Restaurante Misuzu. Honto Ni*!

A Rua Américo de Campos é uma via curta e estreita que tem seu início no Largo da Pólvora, cruza a rua Galvão Bueno e, na esquina com a rua da Glória, desemboca justo na Praça Almeida Junior. Eu sou capaz de cumprir o seu trajeto de olhos fechados. Ou pelo menos era. No número... 154? Ficava o Misuzu, um restaurante japonês sui generis.

Este restaurante diferenciava-se dos demais do bairro oriental pelo fato de abrir sua única, pequena e estreita porta com cortinas azuis decoradas com ideogramas brancos, de onde pendia uma ...

Épocas difíciles para mamá, buenos recuerdos para mí

Come todo, mottainai para botar”. Aunque han pasado 2 años, aún extraño a mi mamá. Si se te acaba el Ajinomoto, echa shoyu (sillao) con azúcar”. ¡Cuántos de sus consejos aún quedan en mi memoria! “Si cocinas haciendo tanchi, la comida sale mal”.Mi mamá siempre tenía la razón. La comida se prepara con cariño, sin hacer tanchi (molestarse).

Mi mamá no demostraba abiertamente su cariño, al igual que mi abuela (oba). Ambas enviudaron con hijos pequeños y en épocas difíciles: mi oba en la guerra (1944) y ...

Restaurant Memory

My favorite restaurant in Little Tokyo is called Suehiro’s. It is a small Japanese restaurant on First Street between San Pedro and Alameda. It used to resemble a little mom and pop restaurant, but was recently remodeled to keep up with the rapidly gentrifying neighborhood. It is now more elegant and even has a wine bar, but it still serves the same comfortable, delicious food.

I like the chicken sukiyaki with its hearty broth and steaming noodles. I always search for the chewy shiitake mushroom hidden among the vegetables. The food is very simple: crunchy shrimp tempura, salty fish ...

Chohichi Tanaka left Itoshima in Fukuoka, Japan in the early 1900s looking for a better life. He decided to venture to America where he thought he might find work.

He became a share cropper and grew sugar beets and sweet potatoes. He met his wife through a picture bride arrangement; her name was Waka.

They had five children: Aiko, Yoshio, Masao, Mitsuko, and Hanako. They all attended school in French Camp. Education ...

In Praise of Konbini Ice Cream

I can remember those thickly hot Kobe days, when my brothers and I sat for hours on tatami mats, sluggishly scratching and slapping at the hot, swollen welts covering our legs. We would trace the patchwork fields indented on our knees and our thighs from the pressure of sitting on bamboo mats for too long, all the while dragging the page of a book to read on, numbly pawing at our Nintendo DS, or maybe even sinking into the couch cushions to stare at the television screen as it frustratingly highlighted Japanese Olympic athletes when all we wanted to see ...
