I only tried it because it was offered by a friend, otherwise I would have never known about it.

That one is fairly common in most large US cities.
It is good too.

Sometimes the Asian version of a beer is slightly different than the version sold in the US, in San Francisco I could get two different versions of Tsingtao

I need to pick up some Chinese rice wine soon (I've been using dry sherry in my wok which is good too), I like Xiaoxing in particular for cooking.   I've tried other brands but the quality isn't there; anything called "cooking wine" should be avoided.   I also need some hoisin sauce and a big thing of peanut oil.   I love Asian markets, always the best stuff and the prices are incredibly low.

Trying to cling to the memories of Italy!



Not the best pizza we had, but still good stuff - just a sidewalk cafe in Rome.

I'm sorry. I was not able to watch the image with my computer. However, I imagine it when probably the memory that Ash experienced in Rome was splendid.

I love really good pizza, unfortunately, people in the southern US don't know what it is. Its very hard to find good pizza around here.

Simple Margherita Pizza is the best for me ... fantastic mozzarella and fresh tomato sauce with basil leaves topping.



Wow ... amazing. Beer

^ Yeah!

The margherita pizzas in Italy put such shame in my local area - a bit like John's problem - no-one around here can approach wonderful pizza.

You know it's a good sauce too, when a pizza with only about 3 ingredients is so damn good.

 ^^ that's a beauty, we have a new Chicago-style place near us and they also make a great thin crust (nothing as good as that picture though)--  I admit to also liking the doughy sourdough crusts here in Cali, not authentic but damn good.   Anyone like cornmeal crust?  It's good but so friggin dense I can barely finish two slices in a sitting .. hhrmph

There are a lot of shops of the pizza which performs mainly delivery in Japan. The kind is abundant, but a normal price is approximately 25 dollars and 30 dollars. It is slightly expensive for at least common people. Therefore, the Japanese often buys a frozen pizza, but the taste is totally bad. And a pizza stone became the topic before in Japan to make the frozen pizza better. The quality of a frozen pizza was said to improve when I used this, but I have not yet tried this.

Finally I've had a piece of mozzarella pizza (with a glass of Chilean red wine) last night ... so very nice taste & flavour.

In Japan, a cold day still continues. Much weather does not happen quite often recently. Probably the lowest temperature will be 42.8F.

I needed warm soup as lunch, but came to feel tired. Therefore, today's lunch is really brief.

Salmon Roe is in the rice ball. The seasoning is soy sauce.
 
 
The shrimp is almost buried under mayonnaise. Few leeks. The image is hard to distinguish it.

just made a trip to Clement St. for Chinese supplies--  got two bottles of Xiaoxing rice wine (aged 3 & 5 years), Hoisin, peanut oil, two kinds of pepper sauce, and some nice ground bean paste.   Been using Basmati rice but lately switching back to long grain depending on the source; I like a thin grain that splits slightly when cooked.

Ha, I remember Clement Street, its getting to be a long time ago, but I think there was a used record and CD store there named Flat Plastic Sound. I got to know the owner some, The store closed, I think he only sells on ebay now, ...for shame.
Anyway, Re Kazuhiro, I had Japanese lunch today, American style, vegetable sushi with the ginger and wasabi on the side, seaweed salad and some wasabi rice crackers for dessert.
