Oh dear, I guess Carolyn Alburger already posted a photo of those famous Bushi-Tei chopsticks, you know, the ones so unique that high-end diners swipe them. So, I’m not really adding anything here:

(Honestly, I missed the photo that she posted. Don’t know how that happened…)
Darn, this means that I’m just another free-loading internet wantrepreneur, another aggregator.
So, I guess alls that left to do is send out a misleading, hyped-up, SEO-optimized, Huffington Post-style Tweet and then I’ll watch the $$$ roll in…
No, I can’t do it! I gots to add value before this post is done.
Let’s see here, Bushi Tei’s chopsticks look like Harry Potter wands, like mini-Elderwands. (There, I’ve started the rise from mere internet wantrepreneur, mere aggregator, up to the lofty perch of blogger, of content creator. Hurray! Whew, that was close.)
But wait, there’s more.
OMG, handmade Pocky!
“Chocolate Pot de Creme – Blackberry and Elderflower: Handmade Pocky” by Pastry Chef Yuko Fujii:
These Pockies are the cutest things I’ve seen since those mini choco burgers that Spork gives you to ease the pain right at the time you realize you dropped $80-something at a revamped KFC. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that. And, last I heard, their Original Recipe Pull Apart Rolls with whipped honey butter and sea salt are still free, price on the menu is listed as $0.00. Hurray! Oh yes, please don’t steal Spork’s hefty, metal, straight-outta-Pusan sporks neither.)
I was going to save these Pockies for another post, but I sure don’t want anybody to call me the “A-word.”
Anyway, bushi tei is swinging for the fences up there on Post Street – I mean, they had a Michelin star(!) for a while, right? (And let me tell you, you won’t find too many of those in District 5, let me tell you.)
And now, bushi-tei has a new chef, I understand, so who knows what the future will bring.
