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!
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?
