  • Coconut Curry Lobster Bisque

    This is a recipe I’m posting at least half for my own record keeping as anything else. I still have some lingering questions about the┬árecipe and I don’t have great photos, but I’ll share what I’ve got and try to update the next time we make it. But man, it’s too good to lose! Backstory: […]

It’s definitely not the fanciest place but it has good pretty cheap eats and my favorite Japanese entree I’ve ever had, Sakegohan. It’s a rice bowl with seaweed and salmon and some sauce. I’ve never […]
