Office Hazards.
There are innumerable daily dilemmas that abound in workplace environs, of this I am sure: missing a deadline, forgetting your lunch, overlooking an important e-mail from the boss…
But  few are more sad than getting into work to grab your first cup of almighty coffee, to find that your go-to mug is missing! The mug you KNOW doesn’t have anybody else’s cold germs on it. The mug that’s big but not TOO big - pretty but not fussy - homey but still professional…gone, just gone.  
No matter if it was stolen (ergh, “borrowed”) by a co-worker, broken by the cleaning crew & discarded, or accidentally moved to the other kitchen on the 2nd floor that you NEVER go to — you, my friend, have been Mugged.
Post some fliers, snoop into O.P.O (other people’s offices), and ask the questions that need asking. Be smart. If you’ve got a great mug, take precautions. It’s dangerous out there, folks.

OH SWEET MAMA.
Hark! We’ve hit the mother load, and her name be Wang Zing Ji.
Is this giant pork Soup Dumpling merely a gimmick of Americanized bigger-is-better proportions or can the craftsmanship of it’s smaller bite-sized brethren really be translated into a monstrously delicious über dumpling?
Verdict: If i’m going to burn my tongue drinking soup through a straw, it better be to get to the flavorful salty broth at the bottom of this meaty dough beast.
The regular sized soup dumplings at this joint are also good, but on the sweeter side. Do yourself a favor and go dutch one of these mamajamas, malt shoppe style (one shake, 2 straws).

(P.S. Legitimately tastes like banana bread, woah.)

Preserves are the Jam.
I recently started putting Raspberry Preserves on more random things like chicken sausages & eggs or turkey & Jarslberg Sandwiches. Tomorrow I’m going to try it in oatmeal.
If i were a richer man I’d buy fancy jams in pretty jars….isn’t that quaint.

Heaven?
I figured out how to easily make sushi even more delicious—
Add Sriracha chili sauce TO the soy sauce.
(Huy Fong Sriracha = Red Sauce, Green Cap, Cartoon Rooster on the front. It’s VERY spicy and goes with pretty much everything.)
And, YES, those are jalapeno slices you guys— hooray for Katsu-Ya — 16542 Ventura Blvd, Encino and 11680 Ventura Blvd, Studio City

Sandwich Fortuna. [Not weird, just amazing]
There’s a beyond delicious tuna sandwich over at Potato Chips, you guys (thanks for the tip, RB). It’s tangy and simple and i love it— with Havarti, tomato, basil, lemon, & fresh herbs on a warm crusty roll. Call me crazy, but I took the cheese off my sandwich & nibbled on it afterward as dessert instead…..don’t hate!

[UPDATE: The quality of this sandwich & service is on the decline. sigh.]

Bacon Brodey: Back in the Habit
Due to my insatiable love for all things bacon, my grandpa nicknamed me “Bacon Brodey” when I was a kid— much to the chagrin of my dad & jews everywhere.
But here it is, friends, the piece de resistance: Maple Glazed Bacon Donut from Nickel Diner.
