Kazuhiro and I like to talk about lunch, personal recipes, interesting dishes, drinks, mixology etc etc
I'm mostly vegetarian and I also get into southern US soul food, which is an odd combination that has lead to a lot of personal recipes, I also like to experiment with tofu etc.

Here is a mixed drink that comes from Mexico that I like, its easy.
Mix a light beer like a lager with about half as much Clamato or Snappy Tom or Tomato juice and add lime juice, hot sauce and salt to taste, you might want to salt the drink glass rim. yum yum

John explained all outlines of this thread. The small talk has escalated. By the image for my lunch.

I enjoy this thread for a while. And, it is likely to be interested in a general meal of each country at the same time.

I have understood the custom of making a homemade source in Japan as a result is not established hearing the recipe.

The food of Japan has a healthy part. However, a homemade recipe is average.

Speaking of frying, I'm finally getting where I can bread tofu and fry it and it comes out fairly good, it took a while to get that right.
You have to get the oil really hot, but not so hot that it splatters and burns you, burns down the house etc
I borrow from the southern fried chicken recipe and put a lot of seasoning in the flour like garlic salt and black pepper.

mmmm  I think I would rather have the sushi too. My favorite is tekka nigiri with just a little bit of soy sauce, wasabi and ginger on the side.
I like to have seaweed salad with my sushi, or maybe some sliced fruit like kiwi.

^ in the states we call that a tekka roll, but what we call the tekka nigiri is a long piece of tekka on top of a long piece of rice with just a little bit of wasabi underneath.

Very nice looking seaweed salad by the way, it looks way more gourmet than what I am used to getting.
I love the Japanese presentation for food and drinks, so modern and clean looking,  ..now I miss San Francisco.

My creations generally end up more of a pile than an arrangement, by the time I'm done cooking I just want to eat it and don't care what it looks like LOL.

I don't often take pictures when I am cooking, but here is an older one I found on my computer.  If I recall correctly it is chicken, zucchini, radishes, green onion, coarse ground black pepper (which I put on everything), cayenne pepper, probably some paprika, and a splash of dark rum (Lamb's Navy) mostly for smell.

I want to make the salad. Because the garlic salt is not sold, it is likely can do nothing but mix it by homemade. It is a little expensive though I want the olive in Japan. If I mimic and make it, the salad is surely an imitation. LOL

I don't recall any fried chicken in SF, There were two BBQ chicken places in SF I liked. Brother in Laws on Divisedero, and oddly enough, the punkish club Zeitgeist.
There was one place in the Fillmore that probably had fried chicken (I can't remember the name) but I always got the catfish.

Re John: The impression of the public peace changed into Japan a little due to this event. Japan might have been recognized that the public peace was good. However, a little brutal crime increased in Japan since this event.


Re Slava: It knew the book on Haruki Murakami was translated in various countries. Perhaps, I thought that the book that Slava had read was a book that was called an underground. It has divided the 1st and secondarily. I have not read it yet.

Salmon's roe is called Ikura in Japanese. Ikura is often processed. Seasoning also. Ikura before being processed has another name.

Cod's roe is called Tarako.

By the way, when saying, "How much is it?", Japanese is said, "Is this Ikura?"

The meaning is different though it is the same pronunciation. LOL

Japan is almost certainly importing the tuna from foreign countries. The tuna imported from the west coast in the United States is very high-level for the Japanese. A cheap tuna is sold in Japan compared it. It becomes a processed food like the canned food at the same time. The Japanese knows the taste of the tuna imported from the west coast to be a very delicious dish. There are sashimi and sushi as a dish of Japan. If tuna's part is a high-level part, the price is surely high unlike other parts.

I remember what it was called in San Francisco now: masago or maybe masagoa, something like that, and I believe it was salmon roe, but I may be wrong.

I investigated it a little because there were not so many shops of sushi of California in Japan. Perhaps, I think, the name is "Masago".

The specific roe that is called masago doesn't exist. Perhaps, I think it to be a name of the method concerning cooking.

However, the roe is certainly used for masago roll. Perhaps, I think it to be a roe of shishamo smelt. It is a roe that shines to the orange.

It's not our fault God made them taste so good.  I love good raw tuna.  Practically a totally different creature than canned.

I was watching a documentary on the bluefin and as it turns out an entrepreneur came up with the idea converting cargo containers that were bringing export electronics and stuff to the US to refrigerator units so that they wouldn't be empty for the trip back and started shipping tuna.

I was crazy about submitting the review of Indo/Raga about one year ago with PA. I often listen to the music of India since then. And, I am researching the section of Exotica and World Fusion with JMA now.

My interest swells and I often go to the shop of Indian food.

The atmosphere of the shop to which I went last night is put here today.

------
I first entered the shop and ordered the beer. The beer is "King Fisher Beer".
There are a flavor and refreshing like the fruit though the taste is a little thin.

Because I had already drunk the beer, it was not so hungry. Next, it is "Tandoori gobi" that I ordered.
The cauliflower is seasoning of the hot sauce made from the spice and the yogurt.

I asked the storekeeper. I thought that it wanted the sake suitable for the tandoori gobi. The storekeeper recommended me rum. The name is "McDowell's"
The beer and rum that I drank are all from India.

Yeah, I like Indian food and Kingfish beer too, but tonight I am having Japanese takeout. I have not had a day off in a long time so no cooking for me tonight.
The takeout is:
Tekka nigiri
california roll (they forgot my masago)
seaweed and cucumber salad

People in Memphis are kind of naive so I guess they expect to get sushi at a Chinese restaurant, so a lot of Chinese Restaurants here have sushi LOL   ..so I just walked across the street and got some pretty good sushi from the Chinese restaurant.

You would never see a Chinese restaurant with sushi in San Francisco.

Memphis is not a very sophisticated or cultured city, they are very naive about Asian cultures. 
They probably think the Indian resaurants should have sushi too. Wink

Just do a web search and I'm sure you might find a good spot in Memphis, your luck would be better in Atlanta though.  But if going to the southeast US you should try regional stuff...

The best Japanese restaurant I have tried in Memphis is called Sakura, its pretty good, but not as good as some of the restaurants I liked in San Francisco.
Sakura was recommended to me by a Japanese family I work with. I had to correct the two daughters pronunciation because they were pronouncing the word as if it was English, ha ha. A lot of people in Memphis pronounce all words as if they were English words. 

Slarti is right though, you can come to Memphis and enjoy our regional favorites: BBQ and soul food; grits, greens, biscuits and gravy, fried chicken, sweet potatoes, pecan pie, etc.

About 40 years ago. A lot of jazz bars and clubs existed in Japan. However, the situation changed gradually in the age and a lot of jazz bars closed the store. The existence of the jazz bar that remains in Japan is a little now. Therefore, the shop name is gradually known to the jazz hound.

The jazz bar that I visited last night is not so known. However, the bar opened a store in 1975. I often visited there and was researching jazz.

Then, the atmosphere of the jazz bar that I visited last night is put here. Please enjoy it.

The shop name is"Pithecanthropus Erectus"
Have you already noticed it?
Yes. It quotes the album title of Charles Mingus.

Certainly. The cheese known in Southeast Asia hardly exists.
A real cheese relies on all the imports.

Also in the United States, I feel the dish that uses the tuna general. The method and the seasoning of cooking might be various.

And, the seasoning of Japan thought that it was evidence that Japan is admitted if known acceptable also in the United States.

However, I have not experienced a real dish of the United States yet.

Different parts of the US where I have lived have different food styles that are popular.
On the west coast in California food tends to be lean and healthy with a lot of influence from Asia and the Mediterranean.
In the south in Memphis the popular styles are barbecue and soul food; black eyed peas, collar greens, sweet potatoes, grits, cornbread, macaroni and cheese, pecan pie etc.
In Texas you get a mixture of Mexican and southern cooking called Tex-Mex. Its a lot less healthy than the fresher style of Mexican food you can get in California.
Florida has a style that is influenced by the gulf coast seafood plus Latin cultures like Cuba and Mexico.
In the northern part of the US people eat a north European type of diet with a lot of meat, potatoes and cooked vegetables.

I felt that apparently, there was a difference in the culture of the dish by the region hearing the opinion.

Perhaps, I thought that the culture of the dish was different in the region where it had faced the sea. The dish that uses the fish because Japan is an island is frequently put on the table.

I thought that there was a little different culture in California and Memphis. For culture of dishPerhaps, I think that John knows them. And, I thought that I always did a good selection for health.

I stayed up until midnight drinking alcohol last night. Therefore, today's lunch is a salad. It doesn't give the stomach the load. Big smile
 
Pumpkin and cucumber

Those look really good.
Last night I made a vegetarian pizza with a Hawian flavor:  pineapple, green pepper, red pepper and onion. Jalapenos would be good on that too, but I didn't have any.
I preceded that with appetizers of peanuts, sesame sticks and hot crackers with a couple of gin and tonics.

It is very interesting. I like pizza. The pizza of the Hawaii flavor is often sold also in Japan. However, if it is made from homemade, I respect you. Smile

And, the alcohol seems to be also delicious.

that sounds good, ... pizza places in the south are terrible. 
In SF I like that place on Valencia near 16th, at least I think it is Valencia, its been a long time. Actually it may be the street next to Valencia, anyway, it is real close to 16th.

don't know it but that area has really improved, many very cool places and plenty of hipster activity (in a good way)

Perhaps I thought that an apple and a pumpkin were liked as an autumn cooking ingredient in U.S.A. I do not understand it precisely.

As for the autumn cooking ingredient in season in at least Japan, a saury and a chestnut are liked.

A saury. A few onions and carrots. The seasoning is almost vinegar.

A cuttlefish. Celery. Paprika. The seasoning is almost salt.

yes that's right, apples and particularly squash/pumpkins are favored in the fall (and of course widely available during the whole harvest period)

It is wonderful. I am taken by the impulse that comes to often want to eat an apple pie.Smile

oh there's nothing like the tart-meets-sweet of fresh apple pie

The real cake is not sold to Japan either. All the Japanese cooks learn abroad. Furthermore, a Japanese is weak in homemade cooking like jam and a fruit sauce.Big smile

yeah fruit preserves and baked goods are more common in the Euro-American tradition, though for pickling I think Asia out does us

It's lunchtime in my neck of the woods.  Currently enjoying a vegetarian lunch special from Lawrence Cafe: hummus, babaganoush, falafel, and tabouli.

That sounds good, especially if the taboulah is fresh.

I usually break for lunch at 11:30, the place is close to my office, so I phone it in and It's ready when I get there, 10 minutes.  Beats the hell out of the fast food options in the area.  Being in a small office I usually eat at my station.  I used to be able to meet with my sister about once a week for lunch out but she's living down in Florida now.

I like a nice MiddleEastern plate too, good baba (not Yaga) is a favorite .. anyone ever made your own falafel?  It's easy and like no falafel you've had; just get a good brand of mix in a box, hydrate and let sit, form in patties and fry in olive oil till golden brown on both sides.  Superb with your favorite hummus and all the fixins.
