I was surprised to find matsutake udon back on the menu at Gombei in Menlo Park. True, the portion wasn't as large as the last (October) visit, but woo-hoo, what taste/texture! $9 plus tip fills you up - but I'd call to see if it's available.
This classic should be in every Southern woman's repertoire. A moist, delicious Chocolate-Mayonnaise Cake pleases crowds of all ages, and is the perfect dessert to bring to a neighbor, to a potluck, or to a summer party.
