Today is my return flight to Austin. I have a bunch of goodies to bring back, including several frozen burritos and chimichangas which I cannot buy in Texas. My bag got pulled aside for a check at TSA, and the agent asked if I was carrying food. I said yes, some frozen burritos. He asked if they were Ramona’s, and I replied yes. He asked if they were beef and potato, to which I also replied yes. Then we got into a nice conversation about which flavors we preferred, and then he said that he will stop by the store on the way home and buy some for dinner. So funny!
This evening, Mariko and I shared a bottle of matcha IPA beer from Kizakura Saké Brewing Company. It was delicious, with just a hint of matcha flavor. I was worried it would be overpowering, but I thought it was just right… 😋
Many people are familiar with the original Pickapeppa flavor, but the hot pepper flavor is my favorite. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find these days, so when I saw it in my mom’s pantry, I had to have some. If anyone sees the hot pepper flavor, please buy some for me! Willing to drive hours for it.
Some fire from the islands: Jamaica and Maui. I really enjoyed the Hamajang. Delicious and spicy. 🔥
Today I enjoyed a big bowl of ramen at Jidaiya. It was delicious! I was going to meet a friend here, but at the last moment, he had to reschedule for Friday. Since I had already arrived at the parking lot, I figured I would just go ahead and eat. I love ramen so much, I won’t mind coming back in a couple days.
