a special rum

I've sipped two shot of rum tonight. The left picture, Trois Rivieres 1996. This brewery be burned in a fire before. There were some barrels survived in the fire. I think it's the first and last to sip this special bottle.

We've puffed shisha tonight in a arabian restaurant, Al Ain, located Isezakichojamachi in Yokohama. It nears Kannai. The chef used to work the Kuwaiti embassy. I forgot to take photo of dinner because we've really enjoyed it. Everything was fine, cozy foods. the sweets and coffee. There are turkish coffee and arabic coffee. I choose arabian coffee. it's watery(more like tea) and include cardamom and something. It went together with dried date palm. I love this style. We've also puffed some hookah shisha, flavored mints, rose, apple, and mango. The guy in the photo, he isn't smoker, but he also enjoyed it. We've enjoyed a wonderful dinner. You shouldn't go alone. Go with many people and choose many foods, and puff shisha. If you could see belly dance. that would be divine!!

sawaya matsumoto

It's getting one of my favorite sakes, sawaya matsumoto. I love the atsukan of the junmai. This sake is genshu, stronger than usual sake. It tastes nice. I recommend it as hiya(chilled).

mekabu is sprout of wakame(seaweed). It says mekabu has much vitamin, mineral, and fiber. Perhaps, It looks little spooky for non Asian people, but seaweed is popular. and mekabu is a nice dish with rice. I cut them into strip, and pour boiling water. See the picture, they turn to nice green. It tastes little salty and sticky. you can eat them without seasoning. This is one of Japanese foods in Spring.

it tastes nice a few days after

I've tasted the rest of P'tites vignes. I think it's also nice, as if it's nicer than Yesterday. and the cheese, Garrotxa, was also nice. It smelt like mushroom at this time. As a dinner, I ate simmered lentil beans with soup stock(with bacon bone), sausages, and some risoni pasta(shaped like rice). the big green olive was include jalapeno inside it.
