The GF thought I had to see this:
As some of you know, I’m not the best at leaving Manhattan. Or leaving the apartment for that matter. So where to go when you haven’t left Manhattan for a year? Mitsuwa, of course, in Edgewater, New Jersey. It’s a gigantic Japanese grocery store. All we had to do was catch a shuttle from the Port Authority.
The view across the Hudson from Mitsuwa’s cafeteria – lots of great stands to order from. The
second first building to the right of the lamp post is Grant’s tomb.
There’s nothing like a good-quality sharp knife in the kitchen. The GF gifted me with a Nenox Western-style knife (this one) a few years ago from Korin, the store referenced in this video. If you’re ever in Manhattan, you should pay a visit – nearly every sushi chef in the city uses Korin knives and brings them in regularly for sharpening by the master sharpener.
