On my way to the farmer's market this morning. 10 AM, I'm running late. I'm on the freeway but you see the haze about a quarter of a mile ahead. It's the Japanese Food Bazaar!! I slow down and open the window. Teriyaki Chicken smells fill the car. Everyone is slowing down. I go to the FM get some peaches (great), corn, flowers and a tomatoe. I'll have breakfast at the Japanese Bazaar, an annual treat. I get there at 11 AM. There are a few people there but it's kinda empty, no lines. I get a box of the Chef's Choice Sushi and a Sapporo beer. 10 bucks and a tip. I said, "Where is everyone?" He said "We don't open until twelve but no problem." :) At about a quarter to twelve the lines were starting to form, I had finished and was leaving.
This was the 60 year anniversary. Can you imagine starting that in 1946, just out of the camps. What a great culture and great friends we have here in Sacramento.
Great breakfast too. "Sushi, The Breakfast of Champions."
