Beard Papa’s Debut Disappoints

Beard Papa’s finally has opened in Uwajimaya’s food court after numerous delays. Was the cream puff worth the wait? For a frequent visitor to Japan like me, it was fun to see the familiar yellow signage and the famous Papa face. But my nose immediately…

Dishin’: Roamin’ for Ramen

We’re crazy about ramen. It might go back to Tampopo, the 1985 “Noodle Western” centered around a ramen shop, with its memorable raw egg and saliva swapping scene. While that movie glamorized the noodles for us, we’d never been to a real ramen shop, instead…

Good to Go: Hiroki’s Sweet, But Not-Too-Sweet, Desserts

Yesterday, a busy afternoon meant missing the Queen Anne Farmers Market for the first time since it opened this year, so without seasonal berries or cherries at hand, the evening’s treat was a stop at Hiroki—the Tangletown bakery near Kisaku, one of my favorite restaurants…
