Taka Update June 14, 2016
Fish and More
Believe or not, fish price is going up. Tuna is OK and cannot get good one. And the price is 10% higher than before. Calamari is getting short. Our supplier said, “ If we have inventory, just buy more otherwise we don’t know next shipping. “ I read some articles about this. China is a big factor of this food shortage and price up. The demand of fish in china is huge. And there are 30 million fishermen in China. They go to all over the world to catch fish. There is no rule. They break rules. They catch all of them from baby to adult fish.
And another story is global warming is going on inside of the ocean. California uni is gone for a while. It is because of global warming. I wrote this before. Uni eat seaweed, kelp. And seaweed and kelp grow under cold temperature. Sea temperature is high in Sanra Barbara area recently and there is no food for uni. Uni is there but uni cannot grow. This is really sad thing. So, we get uni from Japan recently. And Maine uni season is over. We tried Chilean uni but it was bad quality.
Today is Tuesday and we can get Fukuoka fish market from Japan. Kinme-Dai, Aka-Mutsu, Aji, Hamachi are coming.
I feel I cannot get good tuna for a while. I opened a new location for 3 weeks. There was no good tuna at all. This is also sad.

Restaurant
We opened the place on May 23 and passed 3 weeks. Business is not bad. And Friday and Saturday are very busy. Please make reservation. We could not take walk-in customers until 8:30pm last Saturday.
We are facing short of staff. We don’t have enough servers now. We might close lunch after school start in August. This is really bad but no choice so far. I ony have 2 hands and 2 feet. I cannot do everything by myself.

Closing date of current location

We finally decided the date of closing. It is March 5th Saturday. We will clean up next 2 days and move to a new location.

I want do so a special week from February 29 – March 5. “ Thank you Atlanta good bye sale”? Something like that.

But the opening date of new location is not sure. “Construction is always delayed.” This is the theory of new openings everywhere. But I still hope the first week of April.

Campbell’s Soup for taking a step in the right direction and announcing GMO labeling.

All ingredients in Campbell’s food products that contain genetically modified organisms will now be labeled. It’s still unclear whether the labels will make distinctions on the kind of GMOs used, but one thing is for sure: customers are going to know which ingredients contain GMOs in general.
But do you buy Campblee Soup cans? I don’t buy them. Fresh made soups are much much better than cans.

45 million Americans now on food stamps

The number of Americans receiving food stamps exceeds 45 million – a level which has remained relatively constant for more than four years now. That figure accounts for nearly 20 percent of the population of the country.

In 1969, there were 2,800,000 Americans in the food stamp program. Since then the number has increased more than 15-fold.

In the midst of a sluggish economic “recovery” (one which many consider non-existent), there is little doubt that a large percentage of these recipients are indeed struggling to feed their families and deserving of assistance, as the gap between the rich and poor in our nation grows ever wider.

I don’t know why but Japan is getting similar as US. Many low income people, many single moms, no saving money at all. It was not like hat when I was in Japan around 1990. Rich people become richer, poor people just stay low zone, a few middle people can climb up to upper class and most of middle drop to bottom. I am still lucky that I feel. I came to US and made some money, having a good life.
