Ricksha and Wakano Ura are both closed on monday (at least they didn't answer their phones around 2) so in search of Japanese comfort food I went to Edokko II on Florin you get on 5 south and get off at the 43rd ave exit, turn right onto Riverside and then left onto Florin and it's right there on your right. So good and so cheap! Unbelievably cheap. I got the mapo tofu ramen which was described as spicy tofu and ground pork. It was 6.75 and it was so giant I had to take some home. Me and GW split a large hot sake and it was 4.95. The place was filled up with cute families and everything that everyone was getting was very intriguing. I can't wait to go back and try more. Why can't New Edokko and Edokko 2 switch places?
Hey you guys, don't forget that the Jonathan Richman show is this saturday at Marilyn's. That is always a good time.
I'm making chopped liver for a Hanukah celebration I'm going to. Does anyone have a recommendation for where I can pick up a pound of chicken livers? Making schmaltz is so much work, I don't think I'm going to bother. Where am I supposed to get like four pounds of chicken skin?! Oy.
