Usually I fry these wonton wrappers to make spicy tuna tostadas but I’ve always wanted to use them to make tacos. I’ve never seen wonton wrappers used like this before but they make perfect bite size hard tacos.
Cilantro and onion for the beef tongue
And scallions for the sashimi and Wagyu beef
Grilled Shiitake mushrooms, beef tongue and Wagyu beef
Left- Soy sauce, apple, sugar, garlic and ginger marinated beef tongue with cilantro and onion. Middle- Shiitake mushrooms topped with daikon/cucumber slaw, spicy mayo and shredded seaweed. Right- Wagyu beef topped with scallions, sesame seeds and yuzu kosho vinaigrette.
Pulled pork tacos next??
“Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (OFWGKTA, for short) probably wouldn’t describe themselves as poetry. The hip-hop wing of a Los Angeles–based teenage music/art/skateboarding collective, OFWGKTA raps gleefully about murder, rape, mutilation, necrophilia, and, in its more lucid moments, self-doubt and general disrepair. A recent Jimmy Fallon performance found their leader, Tyler the Creator, and his pal Hodgy Beats decked out in streetwear and ski masks scrawled with Manson family–like arcana, surrounded by garden gnomes and swaying female mental patients smeared with makeup. In the video for “Yonkers,” Tyler’s debut single and mission statement, the group’s ringleader vomits up a cockroach and hangs himself in lurid, gorgeous black-and-white.” – www.poetryfoundation.org

Most people know Shin Sen Gumi for their ramen but now in my opinion there’s better ramen out there like Santouka or Yamadaya. But SSG’s yakitori game is on point. If you’re not familiar with yakitori it’s a Japanese term used for grilled skewers. Even though it actually means “grilled bird”, yakitori consists of everything from chicken, beef, seafood and vegetables. For the whole month of March at SSG Yakitori (Gardena, CA) every Wednesday the skewers are $1.50 each which is a steal. So if you’re a fan of yakitori or just want a great dining experience with the most hospitable staff make sure you head down here for some good eats.
What I like most about yakitori spots like this is their use of offal meat, it always interests me to try different things. Highlights of the night were the potato croquettes, chicken thighs w/ green onion, chicken skin, chicken meatballs, pork intestines, pork belly wrapped mushrooms and kobe beef skewers. The only fail was the chicken cartilage skewers.
See you next Wednesday!
