Got Lucky in Sacto
On my way to the farmer's market this morning. 10 AM, I'm running late. I'm on the freeway but you see the haze about a quarter of a mile ahead. It's the Japanese Food Bazaar!! I slow down and open the window. Teriyaki Chicken smells fill the car. Everyone is slowing down. I go to the FM get some peaches (great), corn, flowers and a tomatoe. I'll have breakfast at the Japanese Bazaar, an annual treat. I get there at 11 AM. There are a few people there but it's kinda empty, no lines. I get a box of the Chef's Choice Sushi and a Sapporo beer. 10 bucks and a tip. I said, "Where is everyone?" He said "We don't open until twelve but no problem." :) At about a quarter to twelve the lines were starting to form, I had finished and was leaving.
This was the 60 year anniversary. Can you imagine starting that in 1946, just out of the camps. What a great culture and great friends we have here in Sacramento.
Great breakfast too. "Sushi, The Breakfast of Champions."
...Japanese...Italian...Indian...plus, the BEST Greek Food Festival every Labor Day weekend...I am already cleaning out my freezer for the pastries!!!!!!!!
Don't forget the Punjabi Heritage Festival in Yuba City on Memorial Day weekend, only an hour away. Great Indian food!
Punjabi Heritage Festival in Yuba City on Memorial Day weekend? hey, I'm marking my calendar for that one!
Yeah, we're lucky. One of the most diverse areas in the nation. All kinds of food/cultural festivals. I like the Eastern European do's. And yes, the pastries are wonderful. Music and dance is pretty good too.
