Teishoku Yotsuba on a rare sunny winter’s day

Opened in December of 2016, this restaurant has been serving up delicious Chinese food which you know has to be good, not just because I said so, but because the owner is from Harbin in Northern China.

Located on a main street in Higashi Ward with a bus stop nearby, this open and airy restaurant is a great place to eat lunch and I can only assume that it is great for dinner as well, considering their happy hour and drink set menus.

Hiyashi Chuka 冷やし中華

As the weather warms up, I have already started seeing restaurants post their summer menu items and, more often than not, at the top of the list is this noodle dish. Served chilled, kind of like a salad, this is a refreshing and easy to make summer dish!

The common themes with the recipes I found are it is served chilled, the toppings are in strips, the toppings are in a range of colors (red, green, yellow, etc). So not pay too much attention to the amounts and the specific ingredients (especially the toppings, just keep it colorful)! This is a highly customizable recipe so have fun with it! (more…)

Charlie’s Deviled Eggs

This is another recipe I grew up making, usually for family get togethers. However, I never realized that how they get their name: deviled means to make spicy, like by adding mustard or hot sauce. My family’s recipe was always on the sweeter side but just like with miso soup every family has their own style! This is a basic version of the recipe but when you give it a try, make it TO TASTE! This is a simple and easily customizable recipe so I hope you try it out!
