    #5 LOL. I like those kind! Shoga may have been a better choice, though.

    #4 Yep, my Japanese grandmother had a knack for making perfect triangles, all the same size. Was not too fond of the surprise when it turned out to be an uber sour umeboshi.

    #3 Thanks for reading and commenting, Dean. And yes, I think musubi triggers great memories for a lot of people when they were kids. Probably since it is a "finger food" and easy to make. Or maybe it is the "surprise inside" thing kids like to experience when eating.

    It's amazing how good musubi tastes at the beach or aboard a boat. Must be the salt air, or something.

    You bring back many childhood memories. Onigiri was almost always in my lunchbox, usually with sake (grilled salmon) or okaka, (dried bonito flakes). I had no idea musubi/onigiri had gone international. We had a Japanese restaurant in the City (London's Financial district) that was rather popular with the bankers. My brother manned the bento box section, but onigiri did not do well.

    In the Kitchen with Boria

    ShChi is normally a vegetarian affair.... ham and beef have been known to show up when I get in the kitchen.

    1 lb sliced mushrooms - I like to use shitake ; yes I know sorrels are standard - but it is my kitchen.
    1 lb spinach leaves - just buy the salad bag - in Korea I could not get them fresh any other way
    2 onions, chopped - I like the small red ones - more flavor
    1 carrot, chopped
    1 celery stalk, chopped
    2 potatoes peeled - sliced like in the borscht recipe
    1 tb fresh Dill, chopped
    1/2 cup cream
    1/2 head cabbage

    Add all to the pot, fill with 3 cups water - bachelor Hack Trick - Add two tablespoons of canned mushroom soup to the water - it thickens the pot nicely
    Cook on low for 2 hours - 1 /2 an hour before serving - add the fried cabbage.
    Serve with Sour Cream - Friends and Vodka !

    #6 the rice is different here - it is not bleached or machine processed like the boxes and bags from the west. It is more of a long grain brown rice. You could skip the soak, but never the rinse and seive - I have found too many rocks to let myself do that.

    So often peasant food is the best. This is the second time I've read someone saying soak the rice. Is the rice different over there? I never soak rice. Japanese and Chinese short grain rice I wash thoroughly. When I cook a risotto I never soak or wash Arborio rice. Likewise for Thai rice and Basmati.

    Oh...but the original Paella has not seafood...it has chicken...chorizo ( sausage ) and even rabbit meat. plus vegetables and of course the rice. Well in fact they are multiple variations of Paellas.. And believe me. That recipe could pass as a rice dish (paella ) any given Sunday.

    25/07/2017 #2 Brian McKenzie
    #1 ha ha ha - they don't do seafood here. Which is really odd - the rivers and lakes are full of amazing yummy fish. But shell fish are absolutely absent. Though the rumor is that the Chinese will be bringing crawdads with them when the Belt Road is the zone..... I can't wait.

    Meet Borsok (Борсок) the deep fried doughy cousin to the marshmellow, and nearly as addictive. Drowned and sizzled in full fatty oil / animal lard vat and left in the mix until they are perfectly puffed and golden brown. There are not tater tots here - but these will suffice nicely in plussing up your waistline line as well. Frying and dunking the squares makes them pop into a hollow treat that eats like marshmellow carnival peanut candy but has all the umpf of flavor like a hush puppy. They would be great with cheese in the center. ..and bacon too. Brian McKenzie

    Lunchtime Exploring, Part 2: New York Style Pastrami

    As mentioned in my Buzz about office re-location and finding good places for lunch (Musubi-ya), here is another place, about a 10 minute walk from my office. Tommy Pastrami.

    Having some real New York City deli pastrami (with mustard) and cream soda, I have to say this is close.

    http://www.tommypastraminydeli.com/

    But I still prefer the West Los Angeles pastrami place called Jonnies.
