Small pleasures 002: Mame Gohan

The other day, I was going through my pictures from May to finally organize them on my computer. As I was clicking through the pictures from dinner at Kishiyoshi in Higashi Nakano, I paused at this picture and just sighed to let all the tension out.

Many thoughts crossed my mind looking at this picture of the simplest of meals. “It’s already past May, past fresh green pea season and I had only one mame gohan!” I thought. Then, I smelled the aroma of just-cooked rice with the distinct fresh greenness. Slight saltiness mixed with nut-like fresh pea and sweetness of rice filled my mouth. My mind, then, wondered off thinking of the daily green pea gohan in early summers at home and my chores of shelling peas as a kid.

I just cannot believe it’s rainy season already and Tokyofoodcast has been dormant for a long time, since April. In case you are wondering what happened to us, we are here and our passion for sake and food are here, too. We were a bit overwhelmed by some new projects. We are back, well, almost back!

  1. Yay! You’re back! I totally know that feeling of: “Shoot I missed the season for…” But then you can always look forward to what’s coming up.
