I saw this article featuring a dashi braised brisket on the Paul Golin’s Jewpanese Facebook page. Looks good. This is the kind of stuff I wonder about in the Jewpanese world, or for that matter in the wider of world where people from different cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds mix.
The world I live in feels a lot less homogeneous than when I grew up and I’m glad that Japanese cuisine in America is moving beyond trendy sushi places. I remember growing up and going to a Japanese restaurant at the end of the week with my parents. Japanese food was something exotic in my California neighborhood. Today, I know there’s a Japanese restaurant in my Boston-suburb town. I don’t know if it’s good yet, but it’s on our list to check out. I enjoy straight Japanese food, but I’m also looking for something new and different. This brisket sounds like it’s up my alley.
