I really hoped that Today’s Perfect Moment would be the Toronto Maple Leafs advancing to the next round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. I even took pictures to that effect. Sadly, it will have to wait until Tuesday.
If that isn’t going to be Today’s Perfect Moment, I will have to go with my second candidate. Not surprisingly, it is food. In this case, it is Japanese food.
In my early days of Japan, I took some chances at the local supermarket. I am not saying I took giant leaps, or that I always tried something different. No. That wouldn’t be true. However, once I tried inarizushi I was hooked and have been ever since. Twenty some odd years later that sweet rice packed into tofu pockets still has my number.
It is a truly delicious treat despite how often it is overpriced at restaurants or Japanese food stores. If it weren’t so, I would probably eat it more often. At the Asian grocery store across the street from my house, it is quite popular and often sold out. Often, I have no chance of getting my hands on any.
It doesn’t really make up for that game-six loss, but it does take the sting out of it a little.
If you want to read about my other Japanese food adventures, I suggest you take a look at the following posts.
I also note that I wrote another post on Inarizushi. Please feel free to check it out.
