Remember the Onigiri Contest? Last night I was thanked for my judging services with an amazing meal at Breadbar! Artisan soba maker Sonoko Sakai invited us in for some stone milled, organically grown, hand cut buckwheat noodles.
Ordered mine with Hot Mushroom Seiro – Tokyo Negi (onions), and Yuzu
Unlike the ramen I ate at Breadbar’s last pop-up noodle series, these get dunked in a separate seasoning, rather than arriving in a large bowl of soup.
Abe asked for a Walnut Dipping Sauce – we traded bites. Both were uniquely delicious!
(I left half of the soup – it got cold pretty fast.)
Small samples of Kabocha were passed around (and I was reminded why I need to roast another pumpkin STAT!)
Shared the Shira-ae Salad
Green Beans, Golden Beets, Fuji Apple, Tofu, Sesame, and Cashew Nuts. We decided to leave off the cream….
…in fact, most of the items could be vegan-ized!
You only have until January 22nd to experience the Breadbar’s regular menu is available (as it is during the pop-up)
On the way back to our cars, I wanted Pinkberry. Like REALLY wanted it, despite the cold weather (and their recent controversy)…
…ever since I found out that their amazing Peanut Butter flavor is being discontinued, I’ve been craving it!!!
Sometimes I can’t think with my head when it comes to forbidden fruit….
…or maybe there’s really no such thing as bad publicity?
