This weekend we went to one of my favorite Japanese restaurants, Bozu, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The whole staff is Japanese and it's Japanese owned. They make delicious food and serve homemade kajitsu-shu. Their specialty is the sushi bombs, they're like little rice patties with sushi explosion on top. Then they have three types of soy sauce/wasabi combos to drizzle on your bombs, just plain soy sauce, a little wasabi, or thick spicy wasabi with a lil'soy sauce. I haven't tried their Kajitsu-shu but I hear it's really good, I'm always drawn into their wonderful sake selection poured into those wonderful sake boxes! Don't miss Bozu if you're in Brooklyn.

While there was still daylight on Friday we checked out the Dekalb market, it was a little dead but I'm hoping on the weekends when the additional vendors set up the place will be hoppin'. The market houses vendors in shipping containers, allowing vendors to have a permanent space but on the weekends there are additional vendors setup in tents. They also have a food court of sorts, it's a bunch of containers in a square formation with picnic benches under tents in the center. The food vendors include, a taco, vegan, tea, coffee, panini, bakery, and a donut vendor. There's also a tiny radio station that dj's some cool sounds to eat to.
Last but not least, my friends and I went to M. Wells diner in L.I.C.. This place is closing soon and a lot of people are really disappointed, because it's not just regular diner food. A French-Canadian couple (well the husband, anyway, she's from Queens)opened this place up with an interesting menu of Quebeco-American cuisine. A few of their more quirky brunch selections include an egg souflee with bonito flakes, bone marrow, and seafood crock pot. Come for brunch because dinner is outrageously expensive, $120 rib eye steak and $42 burger, but if you do decide to go for dinner, Fridays and Saturdays in August, they’re hosting Farewell Dinners at the diner. This Saturday, for instance, will be ‘Our Trip to the Fulton Fish Market.’”
