Abandoning the Castro death watch
When I was a younger man, I was once dubbed the king of tempura. Now I am a sadder and wiser man, and I go off to a new tempura bar in the Village. Mmmmm.

Feeling: quixotic quixotic

Tell me how that place is, it's not that far away from my school.

They're very obviously still getting things down, but what they had together was great. Not that it matters to you yet (hello ossifer), but no liquor license, so a round of mixed drinks just costs as much as a round of cokes. That's nice for Manhattan. The chef and waiter kept on asking how we felt about the different dishes and sauces, admitting that they were deciding which to keep and which to replace. Their "wasabi peas" were fucking awesome. The tempura itself was good, and a fun place to go/share with friends.

On a side note, I recommend reading The Girl Who Ate Everything for entertaining Manhattan food blogging. It's written by roboppy, who went to NYU for food studies. So if you read anything from before she graduated, it's all about restaurants you'll probably come to know and love. She's the sister of my most recent ex's friend.

I will not screw up my diet. I will not screw up my diet.

Life's too short to eat tofu 24/7.

While I should take better care of myself, I'm not going to deny myself the rich cornucopia of tastes life has to offer during my limited time on this rock. That doesn't mean I'm going to go out and eat KFC, but I won't say no to delicately breaded and excellently prepared pork loin tempura, y'know?

About one hour after I sent that comment I was knee deep in tempura. Ah willpower.
