Aka-kara is gone...

Good morning everyone,

It's looking like yet another gorgeous day is in store for us...well, those of us who are off anyway. The good news is that the weekend is looking nice too-we can expect highs in the mid to high 20s and mostly sunny weather all the way through the weekend and into the middle of next week. Clouds will roll in on Tuesday and we may see some rain on Wednesday...

So, how observant are you? There is was an Aka-kara on the second floor of the same building of my school. and now it's gone...

When my school first opened I went there a fair bit. I thought it was great-I love the idea of having spicy nabe. To be honest, when I have nabe in the winter, I have kimchi nabe about 90% of the time. But I also love the red miso paste base that Aka-kara uses-and the best part is that you can opt for whatever level of spiciness that suits you...starting from 0 (which is basically tomato sauce) and all the way up to 10. I can't tell you how spicy 10 is because the hottest I ever had was 6 and it was too hot for me.

But if you want to try it, you'll have to go to the other one (now, the only one) in Hiroshima, because the one in my building closed at the end of March. I didn't really think about it, but now that I realized it's closed, I have to say that the trips down the elevator on the way are way, way quieter than the used to be.

If I were a bit younger, I'd probably be disappointed about it leaving this building, but now that I only go out about 2-3 times a month, I'll hardly notice that it's gone...ha ha!

But I will miss that red miso soup that I always had about once or twice a winter...any ideas where I can get it? (other than Aka-kara, I mean).

Have a great day!
