Takoyaki… Takoyaki..

February 15, 2008 Leave a comment

As I try to now go over my many unfinished drafts in this wordpress.. I came across this one.. the making of Takoyaki. I know it’s really unlike the entries of this blog, but this is a random blog entry

Takoyaki is also known as octopus balls – well they’re pretty much flour dough with octopus pieces inside it. It is quite delicious and the way they make it is quite interesting to look at, with a sharp needle stick they poke at the cooking balls to flip the ball over and over. At the end there’s some sauce that is put onto it with some other Japanese spices and it makes for a pretty tasty snack during the winter time.

I first learned about Takoyaki when I watched and old episode of Dr. Slump. I see Arale-chan going to go buy some so I am quite happy with that.

In New York City, there’s this really small place at St. Martin’s/Astor Place that sells this, with Yakisoba and Okonomiyaki.

Mirai Koshi Meguru & Papaya Suzuki

February 10, 2008 Leave a comment

I have watched Papaya Suzuki in two dramas: Beauty or Beast and Hataraki Man and now I see him in a third.. which is Mirai Koshi Meguru. Anyhow.. Papaya Suzuki appears as a guest in the second episode… and his acting is pretty funny.. the actress playing his wife is familiar looking.

This dorama is unlike Mop Girl, but has its appeal. Fukada Kyoko acting is quite grown to me …. so I can probably enjoy watching more of this drama. Pretty cracky ne…?
