Recommended Posts

Finally made it down to Chinatown to get some specialty ingredients and stopped off for lunch.

This place is known for their hand pulled noodles and their dumplings. The dumplings were so good that I got a bag of them to take home.

Lan Zhou Hand Pulled Noodles and Dumpling.  They're on Bowery about a block south of Canal.  They used to be on East Broadway in a much smaller space, but have moved maybe a year ago to the current location.  There's a window in the back of the dining room where you can watch the guy pulling a huge skein of noodles... didn't get a photo of it though.  The dumplings are amazing, and the noodles had great texture, but I thought the broth was under seasoned - but that's easily rectified by the jar of homemade chili oil, and bottles of black vinegar and soy sauce on each table...

I was so taken by the freshness, size and price (75 cents each) of the local (Noank, CT) oysters I bought for dinner yesterday, that I made another trip to my go-to fish market this morning. They had gotten a fresh delivery and I was able to choose from an excellent collection buried in the ice today. These were bigger and fresher still! Noank Blue Points and Dogs and Boats makes the sun shine, in spite of this cold and rainy day. I even got out the ice shaver and put them on a bed of the stuff.

Sorry, wrong thread. I posted it here and not the dinner. If Smithy sees this please move to dinner. Thanks.

I stayed at a traditional guest house on Yonaguni island where home-style meals are included in the price. Seaweed of some kind is served with almost every meal, no matter how small the amount. Japan already holds the record for longevity but the highest concentration of centenarians is found in the Ryukyu archipelago. (Look up the well documented Blue Zone study)

 

Impossible to photograph this seaweed soup.

Mahi and marlin are some of the most common fish around here (but marlin is king).

Only tasted the sauce and I stopped there. Sauce had Japanese mayo and hard-boiled egg. I would have made it with miso (butter).

Squid and celery tasted buttery to me.

Went to a restaurant a few doors down the road for beer and more sashimi.

Locally made booze is 60%. The men drink both beer and booze at the same time.
