Little Tokyo (1)
I was driving in downtown Los Angeles, on my way to the Los Angeles Opera's costume sale event, when I happened upon Little Tokyo. I have posted before about my taste for anko, that sweet Japanese azuki bean paste, so it will come as no surprise that I bought some anko-filled treats.
I also bought some beautiful fresh ginger, which I'll have grated in boiling water - this is excellent for your throat when you have a cold, by the way. I also grate fresh ginger into all kinds of dishes, for a little biting kick.
This was also the perfect occasion to hang out in a Japanese supermarket. I'll post a few very colorful, fun pics in the second part on this Little Tokyo report. Stay tuned.
