The restaurant is Hamamori Sushi Bar at South Coast Plaza west. I'm probably safer coming in for lunch next time. The happy hour has some good deals so that's when we've headed in. Oh gawd...it would be more $ if not for those specials.

Tonight's dessert:

1. Special pear tart


2. Framboise


As amusing as the 100L is, I tire of the thin band of focus. One of the guy's in the group has been urging me to use the 45 or 90mm T/S lens with extension tube. Will demo it.

My work around has been a composite with different focus points and a blend in post. The ability to use selective focus allows lots of creative ways to implement. Just uses up lot of frames due to the 3 bracketed shots. What used to be a simple set-up now goes 12 frames (4 different focus points) to 36 frames (12 different focus points.) or more. A super stable tripod rig is crucial.

Why I add the complexity to myself is The small format P&S's are so much easier in this regard. DOF is vastly different but then I ponder large format as well.

No pictures, but I went there for an early dinner with the wife today and the wallet hit was $136 pretip. So worth it though, thanks for the rec!

Glad you made it in. What dishes did you order?

This is part of the ongoing tuition to get practice with food. The lab guys tease me that for all the food seen-eaten, I should weight 300#'s.

Ended up getting the scallop w/ truffle sushi, seared toro sushi, wagyu sushi, that spicy tuna pizza thing, calamari, albacore tataki, hamachi sashimi, and an otoro sashimi (which ended up being the most expensive thing we got but so worth it) Split with the woman so it's not like I ate it all

Yesterday was a grocery day. Normally we don't splurge but I saw some Wagyu cuts in the display case. Mentioned to the wife to get some of the NY type cuts at $29.95/#. When she walked up, it happened to be the butcher she's known since she was a little girl. He hadn't seen her in about 4 years so both were quite happy. He asked her what she wanted and he said, "I'll hook you up with some nice steaks."

We're standing in front of the Wagyu section, he walks to a different counter and reaches in. I look over and it's the "Kobe" cuts at $49.95/#. He sifts through the cuts, pulls two big pieces that are about 1-3/4" thick and thumps them on the scale, I see just shy of 3#'s. Punches the code in and slaps a label on them. He asks "do you like ground beef, pork, fish? After answering he is pulls various items from other sections of the case. In my mind I'm thinking this is going to be $$$. He wrapped them up and the labels indicated ground Wagyu, pork tenderloin and Copper River salmon. Price was still eye opening but not to far out to blow our grocery budget.

We don't buy this type of meat so I snapped pic for memory sake. Leaner than typical Kobe we've had in Japan and he knows we don't like super fatty meats. I don't want to think what this would cost at Flemmings, Mortons...etc.

5D-C, 40mm with 12mm extension tube attached. I like the DOF opposed to the 100L. (This may give way to the 45mm T/S if it works as suspected.)

We'll grill these up this evening.

Do they serve savory crepes, too? Gonna be up there in a couple of weeks and would be nice to find a good creperie.
I painfully miss Ti Couz that was in the mission district. They had the most incredible savory Normandy style buckwheat crepes.

I hate you......


I made some homemade pork/shrimp dumplings with hand drawn noodles. My noodles came out a little inconsistent since it was my first time stretching them, but tasted good.....

MrMark looks good.

One of the airport ramen shops (Maybe it was Nagoya) had handmade noodles and they'd cut them to order. Super cool to see the way they used a knife to cut them. I have a noodle soup craving now.
