In the evening on Valentine's Day, being the sad, lonely single guy that I am, I met a group of friends for some Monja-yaki in Tsukishima. I've had it in some other places, but Tsukishima is the ONLY place to have Monja!
It's the "local food" here in Tokyo.
It's similar to another one called Okonomiyaki, but a lot runnier, and a little harder to eat.
The yellow text is me talking. ;)
Music created in Garage Band.
There are plenty of videos of people making Monja better than we could, but I thought it was fun to watch it be un-made. :P

Hollywood no longer glitters in gold. Green is the new bling and it’s a trend that’s catching on. Earth Day extravaganzas are up next!
Happy Earth Day from everyone at Get-the-Daily. I’m Dana Ward here with your eco-friendly update.
The 39th annual celebration practically resembled that of a red carpet event – but at different locations all over the U-S. Celebs lined-up to support Earth Day and show that green is the new pink!
Topanga Earth Day Festival took-over the entire weekend with music, art, lectures, enviro-friendly technology and how-to-go-green workshops.
Some stores – such as Legends in Malibu – donated its weekend profit to local environment helpers.
Also over the weekend, fans were able to catch tons of musical performances – including the Roots, Ziggy Marley and Menudo – nationwide, as the events are sponsored by the Earth Day Network and the Green Apple Festival. The tour buses are even a bit earth-savvy, getting filled with bio-diesel on the run.
And some stars took a more political approach. Zach Braff and Chevy Chase urge Americans to pick-up their phones Tuesday to call the Capitol and tell our decision-makers that solving the climate change is important to us collectively and it needs to be reflected in future policy.
The list of green-friendly celebs goes on. B-Spears donated the proceeds from the sale of her clothing from her ‘How I Met Your Mother’ debut to the Natural Resources Defense Council. Leo DiCaprio bought new digs in the very eco-friendly Battery Park City in New York. Edward Norton delivered a speech in a Washington mall in support of going green. A handful of other superstars paid a few grand to take part in a meal made from local foods, all benefits going to the Soil Association.
And these are only the events happening BEFORE Earth Day. A whole bunch of super celebs will likely surprise us with more green envy on Tuesday.
That’s your Earth Day update for now. From Get-the-Daily-dot-com, I’m Dana Ward. Thanks for watching!
Former chef to Prince Charles, Gary Robinson knows a thing or two about preparing a meal fit for a king - or at any rate, a future king.
Hong Kong Eats catches up with Gary to see how he's adapting to life in a Kowloon kitchen. Is there a difference between local food preferences and a royal palate?
Taste of the Nation Miami
After sampling some delicious morsels at Miami's Taste of the Nation, celebrating its 20th year in the fight against hunger, I chatted with the cherubic Allen Susser, coordinating chef of the event and chef/owner of the notable Chef Allen's.
I never cease to be amazed at the energy exuded by chefs to feed hungry people of all income levels, and Taste of the Nation is one of the finest charity events in the U.S. Not only does it benefit local food banks and charities, but it gives you, the guest, an opportunity to sample a city's most incredible tastes under one roof for an extremely reasonable price. This is capitalism and charity in a beautiful win-win relationship.
Being indigenous to South American countries like Columbia, Physalis doesn’t exactly fit into the local food movement around here. However, they are in season right now.
Physalis, or Cape Gooseberries, come naturally wrapped, giving them a shelf life of over a month or more. Described as a cross between sweet cherry tomato and pineapple flavours, the Cape Gooseberry actually isn’t a gooseberry at all. In fact, it’s about the closest to the tomato, coming from the nightshade family.
An interesting combination of tart and sweet, they are a perfect and versatile match for desserts, preserves, salads or savoury dishes.
