After cooking

I showed you pork belly and chicken gizzard the other day.
And this picture is after that.
It takes 2 days to make perfect slow cooked pork belly.
I cooked chicken gizzard about 5 hours to make soft.
Then, I made tempura style.

It is hard to sell this kind of food at sushi restaurants. I just made these because of convention demand.

And I like these foods personally.

Origami Expert Makoto Yamaguchi to Give Workshop

Taka Update January 25, 2012

Fish delivery and more

Bad weather in Japan effects some fish delivery. Seki Aji is no coming this week. Sayori, Iwashi are not available so far. I am not sure tomorrow delivery.

Tokyo got 1 inch of snow yesterday and the city was panicked. It is same as Atlanta. People in Tokyo are not familiar with snow and a few inches of snow makes everything bad.

Tuna supply is back to normal, means bad normal. Toro is also same.

Weight Control and Golf

I am trying to lose weight but am keeping same weight. Our business is really good and hard find the time to work out.
