Seattle and Honoruru
Best meal I ever ate:
Ten Yone in Utsunomiya, Japan. The best tempura and kakiage-don on the planet!
My current drink of choice:
I really wish I could:
Have Tony Bourdain's job.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Salumi's salami, artisan cheese, and a crusty baguette.
My favorite comfort food:
A steaming bowl of "champong," with some kimchee on the side. A distant second would be a Chili Frank Plate from Zippy's with extra mac salad, a piece of fried chicken, and a large Orange Bang.
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Ten Yone in Japan, Imanas-tei in Honolulu, Roy's (Hawai'i Kai) in Honolulu, Sunrise Okinawan Restaurant in Honolulu, and Eastern Paradise in Honolulu.
My most tattered cookbooks:
Who needs cookbooks when you've got a photographic memory!
