Sukiyabashi Jiro Gets Instagramed Hip-Hop Style 1

Posted by Foodie Buddha on January 25, 2013

The opportunity for me to eat at Sukiyabashi Jiro, the 3-star Michelin subway port in Tokyo, before Jiro Ono departs is looking highly unlikely at this juncture.  So I must rely on others for any semblance of sushi satiation.  With some luck, maybe Jimmy will get there in a few months and I’ll get a true secondhand encounter.  But in the meantime, I’ve resigned myself to repeat viewings of Jiro Dreams of Sushi, continued refreshing of my Japanese food news feed, and conversations with my tomodachi in the Land of the Rising Sun.

While Sukiyabashi Jiro has long been a pretty big deal for food freaks, the aforementioned documentary has put Itamae Jiro Ono on the lips of people from all over.  Enter Questlove (@questlove), that dude from the Roots (you know – that flavorful hip-hop group that also serves as the house band for Jimmy Falloon).

BATON Supper Series: Ramen Time with Ivan Orkin

BATON Supper Club at Candler Park’s Gato Bizco Café is back (for Monday, June 25th and Tuesday, June 26th) and this one might be the biggest coup yet! [I feel like I say that every time they announce one of those things].

Now that my reservations are in place, I am happy to share with y’all the details for the latest rendition of the show.

Tokyo Taste 2009 – Another Exciting Out Of Town Event

Posted by Foodie Buddha on February 03, 2009

I love to hear about all the international conventions going on!  I am never able to attend, so I basically get the neener-neener feeling by simply visiting the website of the offending event!  That said, Tokyo Taste looks like it will be quite an event.  Though Terminites (correct conjugation???) do not have the personal connection to this event like we did with Madrid Fusion (internal), I thought I’d share a little bit about the event.
