Don't they teach proper knife use in culinary school? This might not be the best way to slice the tofu.
Men Kui Tei is a really great Japanese noodle shop located on 56th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue. I go there from time to time. It's a small, narrow shop that is always bustling with activity and packed with Japanese people. I sat at the counter for dinner tonight with a stack of new magazines to read and ordered the Char-Han (Fried rice with egg, green peas, pork, scallions and shrimp), Shumai (Steamed pork dumplings) and green tea. Totally delicious.
One of the magazines I was reading is the always fantastic Kasino A4 from Finland. It's consistently full of superb graphics and compelling content. Highly recommended. This video with lots of drinking, dancing and laughing is sure to put you in a very good mood. I think it's a excellent way to start your day or whenever you get around to reading this. It's countryside craziness in Masku, Finland by the We Are Kasino gang featuring the song “Totuus minusta” by the wonderful and catchy Finnish electropop group Regina who you've probably never even heard of before. OK, go ahead, sing along (lyrics here). More cool music from around the world. You can thank me later for this one.
