Kei is first in line for Kitchen Kura

Kei and I walked down to a local japanese homestyle restaurant down the street last week. Its called Kitchen Kura and its just like sitting down to grandma’s kitchen (except my Grandma was from Nebraska, not Nagoya). The food was very delicious, authentic, and reasonably priced. The restaurant has about 5 tables, and lots of hand printed signs around telling you what’s fresh that day. Kei had a fish that was broiled in sake dreg sauce (kasuzuke), buttery and so delicate and yummy. I have a feeling we will be coming back to this little neighborhood gem before we move to Mission Bay.

Here’s a video the restaurant produced that shows all the goodies: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USZT9mmpXWg

Milano’s Pizza

It’s Football Sunday and since Kei wanted to catch the final quarter of the Packer game at the local sports bar I was tasked with grabbing the pizza. I stopped in at the lil’ Italian restaurant pie shop Milanos. They made the pizza right in front of me in less than 20 minutes. It was a pepperoni pizza, not too greasy, and not too thin or thick of a crust, a sauce with the right amount of seasoning. Heaven in a dish. This little Sunset neighborhood has almost everything we need.

Cat as fashion accessory

I’m happy to be the recipient of the newest designer accessory from Paris, cat. Not only is it one of a kind, the essential haute coteur accesory of the season, but it doubles as a neck warmer.
