Nobu Scampi/Langoustine With Spicy Lemon Garlic Sauce

I’d been dreaming about making this dish for years since I’d gotten Nobu: The Cookbook (pgs 50, 51, 172).  While I’ve regularly been making things like shrimp/lobster with spicy lemon dressing, it was only yesterday (20 Jan 2017), that I’d discovered that Eataly Boston’s Pescheria@Prudential Center had fresh live langoustines.  Vinny at the Pescheria counter […]

Sometimes, I just want a doughnut: Nobu West’s Chocolate Satandagi

As I was growing up, I remember having Dunkin Donuts Chocolate  (Butter)Creme Filled Donuts. Well over the last couple of years, I hadn’t been able to find them. I resigned myself to the fact that they weren’t ever coming back.  Dunkin’s had ‘officially’ discontinued them ( http://www.birdchick.com/blog/2007/02/dunkin-donuts-broke-my-heart?rq=donuts ) around 2007.  Last holiday season, I *was* […]

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2015/12/09/microbatch-vinegared-sushi-rice/ While I was at Nobu 57 for an omakase dinner, I took the opportunity to pick up a copy of Nobu: The Sushi Book.  While I was perusing its contents, I noticed a dish entitled Traditional Chirashi Sushi Bowl (p.106,107). It’s basically a braised chicken and root vegetable on […]

Burger Wars: The Patties Strike Back

Previously,on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2015/02/01/burger-wars-the-sauce/ …For the next round Burger Wars, I’d like to check out how the Nobu burger beef mix (1 part filet mignon, 1 part ribeye) matches up with Shake Shack’s mix (2 parts sirloin, 1 part chuck, 1 part brisket)… So Whole Foods wasn’t able to accomodate a microbatch custom burger […]
