A second visit to Tampopo this year
It happened to be the season for hotaru ika during this visit so I got a bowl just like the other time. This actually went pretty well with the la-yu (辣油) and a dash of shoyu. The thing that really got our attention today was their wafu steak jyu, an evolution into a rice bento from their regular wafu steak that had appeared on their menu in recent years. Check out all those delicious bits of carcinogenic burnt ends on the beef. We didn't even mind that it was overdone from what we had requested.
The sad news is, their foie gras tonkatsu with truffle has been taken off the menu. Why?!
