warm thursday

Yesterday was warm...of course, I over dressed and had to take off many layers...

I went to Takeya to pick up some vitamins as well as some food items.

Afterwards, I walked to Kappabashi.

I wanted to pick up an oshibuta (drop lid) and a new oil screen, which I found at Kitchen World TDI.

I also wanted those aluminum ice cream spoons and butter knife, which I found at Niimi.

The heat from your hand is supposed to transfer through the utensils and "melt" the ice cream and butter when you use them.

FYI: this place is cash only.

For lunch I stopped into Halima Kebab Biryani (try saying that 10 times fast!)

After being seated and ordering, the place really filled up.

I had their lamb biryani set which came with salad, a little soup, raita (yogurt sauce) and your choice of drink (I chose lassi).

The soup was sour and didn't have much of anything in it...and the salad and biryani were spicy!

Talk about

Thank goodness for the raita sauce and lassi, which cooled things down.

I want to go back to try their curries and tandoori chicken...I'll be back.

The weather was nice and I'm glad I found all the items I wanted from Kappabashi.

I hope you have a nice weekend!

V, The past two times I went to Kappabashi they were having their crazy sale, so I couldn't shop "in peace" least this time it wasn't crazy crowded.

Take care.

You got my favorite instant soup. Did it really have matsutake mushroom in it? or just "flavored"?

Kappabashi, how fun!!!! always heard great stuff about the shopping there; too bad they don't have a collective storefront on amazon italy ;)

Jalna it has freeze dried/dried pieces of matsutake in it. I usually use this to make ozoni for New Years :)

Rowena, You would definitely have fun here :)

Take care you two.
