I'm looking forward to trying all the featured specials....especially the Inari Sushi with Red Queen Crabmeat...plus the Cream Puffs and Custard with Waffles. Anyone else planning to give it a try? The special events at Mitsuwa are always interesting.

                            And only $4.99 a pound. How can we resist?

                              Especially if it's on sale. I hate having to pay full price for my Rectum Bung.

                              Typically "motsu-niku" as it says on the sign is actually just regular intestines (can also be beef but this one is pork), although in some people's minds I'm sure there is no practical difference.

            THE 2013 GOURMET FAIR IS THIS WEEKEND STARTING THURSDAY, JUNE 20th.

            Fried octopus, fresh soba and seafood ramen are among the regional Japanese specialties to be sampled at Mitsuwa Marketplace's annual Japanese gourmet fair starting Thursday.

            Mitsuwa, at 595 River Road in Edgewater, will welcome esteemed ramen makers Kamome-Shokudo of Yokohama, and Osaka's Takoya Kukuru will be on hand with its famous takoyaki, or octopus fritters. Also on the menu: red queen crab and lotus root-stuffed tofu sushi, and manju, the Japanese sweets made from red bean paste, among dozens of other items, with free samples throughout the store.

            The fair runs through Sunday. For store hours or more information, go to mitsuwa.com or call (201) 941-9113.

              I feel it's only fair to warn people that they shouldn't bother going to this... since I plan on eating EVERYTHING!

                I went today. There were long lines at a lot of the stations. The octopus balls had a long line, as did the green tea ice cream. They were selling out of the spongecake with custard/sesame/red bean as fast as they could make them. I had the salmon over rice ($3.80 + tax) It was raw marinated salmon -- very tender and yummy. I recommend it. Tomorrow is the last day.
