Looking at Manhattan from New Jersey

Looking at Manhattan from New Jersey

I visited Mitsuwa Market, New Jersey?the other day. I’m asking myself?when was the last time I got out of Manhattan? It’s been a while, maybe more than 3-months ago? I think that Manhattan is a very strange place. Many people who live in Manhattan, they don’t get out of this tiny island often, because it has everything and every country here…

Santoka Ramen, ikura-don, nitamago and my favorite A-hum Tenugui

Santoka Ramen, ikura-don, nitamago and my favorite A-hum Tenugui

Mitsuwa Market is a HUGE Japanese market (more like a mall), and they have many Japanese restaurants in their food court. I had a ramen and Ikura-don (fish egg bowl), and nitama-do (Special boiled egg with soy flavor) in Santoka. I was reading Japanese newspaper NY Japion, and having my ramen lunch set… ummmm….
I forgot where am I a moment.

I always take my Tenugui when I go out. Tenugui is a very handy tool in many ways, especially having soupy noodles. You don’t have to worry about your mess, if you have a Tenugui! Don’t forget to take your tenugui, when you go to have a bowl of Ramen tonight!!!

people and people and more people... in the sheep meadow, Central Park

I went to Central Park last Sunday with my dear friend. The weather had jumped to summer suddenly… It’s still end of April, but all New Yorkers can’t wait till summer! I surely enjoyed a moment of sunshine with my Tenugui there… and oops.
It’s very hard to adjust body temperature during this season in New York… from 90F (32℃) to 45F (7℃). This is not my plan, but I got a sore throat, runny nose… knock knock… who is there?
Oh well…. I got a cold!

my favorite matzo ball soup - uses a Tenugui as a table napkin

my favorite matzo ball soup using a Tenugui as a table napkin

Do you know matzo ball? Matzo ball is Jewish traditional dumpling (no meat in it) usually served in chicken stock. The first time I had a matzo ball soup was in the Metro Diner?on my birthday two years ago. Since then, I am a big fan of Matzo Ball Soup! I have found many country’s own cuisine, and also different cultures since I moved to NY. Surely makes me feel that I live in the Melting Pot! Finding new things, foods, cultures, languages… are very interesting to me. To knowing the differences will help to understand others who have different backgrounds. And I believe that the knowledge will UNITED us…?Anyway…. let’s stop my mumbling here…
a cup of matzo ball soup?, Tenugui and a spice of LOVE… were the best medicines for me when I was sick.

The news tells us about swine flu all day long. It’s very important to know and understand the right information and how to deal with the environment around you. Please keep your immune system up, and take good care of yourself… I do same things, too!? Take care, everybody!
