In Search of Kobe Fugetsudo in NYC

Thanks Jessesgirl!

I want to give them as gifts for the X'mas holiday. I thought about looking for them at JAS Mart and Sunrise Mart in the East Village. Thanks again for the info!

In Search of Kobe Fugetsudo in NYC

I had them for the first time, fabulous! I especially love the wafer thin, buttery cookies. I also loved the presentation in the tin box. They were a gift from a visitor from Japan. Does anyone know where I can get them in New York City? Thanks !

The House

I'm thinking of going there for my girlfriend's Birthay. It seems to fly under the radar, I have not found any discussion of the restaurant here on Chowhound. Can someone who has dined there please give me a review of their experience. Thanks !!

Storing Home Made Ice Cream

My plastic, take-out containers are not very durable, they split open. I guess they are not meant to be put in the freezer. I live in New York City, I don't know where I can get those Haagen Daas / Ben & Jerry type containers. Thanks for the suggestion for the Rubbermaid or Tupperware!

Storing Home Made Ice Cream

Greetings,

I have started making my own ice cream and sorbet. I usually make them in large quantities, and store them in the freezer for a few days. I have been storing them in plastic, take-out containers. They don't hold up very well in the freezer. Does anyone know what is a good alternative, other than eating it all up, for short term storage? Thanks!

Where to buy Saffron?

Went to Kalustyan's, and picked up a small bottle of Spanish saffron. I made seafood paella for the first time, and it came out great! Thanks everyone for the great suggestions!

Emmons Ave rec, please?

I noticed two new places opened up on Emmons. New York Steakhouse and right next door is this Asian Fusion restaurant/lounge called, what else but, "Fusion". The decor looks like something you would find in Miami's South Beach. I would pass on that place, since I don't like fusion anything. The steakhouse does look inviting, I will give that place a try. Has anybody tried either of those places?

Best Sheepshead Bay Wine Shops

Can someone recommend places with a great selection and a knowledgable staff? Other than the small liquor store types that I often see.
