“Meat Day” Comes on the 29th of Every Month in Japantown – But Uh Oh: “Except for Sausage, Bacon, Ham”

Friday, October 4th, 2013

This is a monthly thing for four-star Yelp-rated Nijiya Market at 1737 Post St (between Buchanan and Webster) in Godforsaken, windblown, Redeveloped, and concrete-and-clay-and-general-decay Japantown.*

But what’s this,”EXCEPT FOR SAUSAGE, BACON, HAM?”

Those are like the three best animals, man!

A good thing is when the have cases of “imported” Sapporo Draft (aka Premium) (kara サッポロビール株式会社 Sapporo Bīru Kabushiki-gaisha) on sale for $13. (Yeah, imported from Ontario, Canada(!), but I guess an import is an import.)

Anyway, enjoy your Meat Days, San Francisco!

Homer: Are you saying you’re never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?

Lisa: No.

Homer: Ham?

Lisa: No.

Homer: Pork chops?

Lisa: Dad, those all come from the same animal.

Homer: Heh heh heh. Ooh, yeah, right, Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.

*I haven’t a clue on how to best fix earthquake-unsafe J-Town. Before the Great Recession, the solution was going to be something like 500 new condos in the nabe, each with a $100,000 fee tacked on to help pay for a new Japantown Garage and whatnot. But some businesses inside the horrible mall buildings are thriving and some are not, so it’s not an easy call to have a giant implosion and just start over. And, up to now, there’s been no money for that kind of thing anyway…

About This Deal

From the Old West’s chuck wagons and military bases’ 1950s mobile canteens to more recent incarnations like taco trucks and hotdog stands, food trucks are far from a new concept. However, in the last few years a revolution has taken place and instead of the usual burgers, dogs and fries, food truck cuisine is suddenly gourmet and fancy while still maintaining very affordable price points. Bringing classic Japanese fare to the mobile food market, the JapaCurry food truck cooks up a variety of authentic Japanese curries and bento boxes filled with your favorite Asian flavors. Get a taste of the Bay Area’s first Japanese food truck with today’s deal of $10 worth of food and drinks for just $5.

As one of the most popular dishes in its home country, Japanese curry is made up of a variety of veggies and meats with a blend of spices. JapaCurry’s signature curry is created from scratch using a secret recipe of spices and quality ingredients cooked slow, allowing the bold flavors to develop fully. Try options like the katsu curry of deep-fried pork or chicken and rice, the sausage curry that uses high quality Kurobuta pork or the veggie croquette curry with a homemade croquette of potato, pumpkin and onion. Though you can request you preferred level, if you can’t take the heat, opt for one of the bento boxes. Try options like the shredded beef with BBQ sauce, teriyaki chicken, fried tofu or the nori bento with fried fish, fish cake and dried seaweed. Grab a side of deliciously pickled vegetables and wash it all down with drink options of water, soda or green tea.

Sausage Showdown: Which McDonald’s Dollar Menu Item Makes the Best Piggy Breakfast?

Saturday, October 10th, 2009

In honor of the recession and in light of the fact that fewer people are heading out to grab a quck bit before work these days, McDonalds added some items for breakfast on their Dollar Menu. I’ve never tried these actual products before but, you know, they all cost a buck and they all use sausage as the main degredient so let’s take a look.

Three items enter, one item leaves as the Victor. Click to enlarge:

Sausage Breakfast Burrito:

There’s not much inside this thing, excepting for molten cheese, which the Ronald crew calls “shredded” – tasted like American “cheese” to me. Could have used some spiciness, which was entirely lacking. Maybe I could have added some sauce, don’t know. They say there’s onion and peppers in there with the egg – couldn’t tell. Third place.

Sausage McMuffin:

The cheese is more solid on this one. It’s like eating a burger for breakfast. Adding in egg would make it a Sausage McMuffin with Egg, which is apparently quite a more expensive proposition. Second place.

Sausage Biscuit:

Tasty biscuit plus sausage, that’s all you get. A bit dry. In the parlance of our day, it is what it is. Doesn’t have American cheese and that’s probably a good thing. Pretty good deal for a dollar. I’d probably prefer an Egg McMuffin but the franchisees would most likely riot if corporate forced the Egg McM onto the Dollar Menu. Anyway, the Sausage Biscuit is the Dollar Menu Sausage Winner, by a nose. 

Choose wisely.
