This Week's Specials: Story of Futomaki, Whipped Green Eggs
Here's what we've been up to this week at Fork in the Road:
Robert Sietsema gave us the story on futomaki: "Futomaki in Kansai - where the roll is called eho-maki ("happy direction roll") - originated as a festival food. It would be eaten once a year in uncut form, which must have been quite a spectacle."
We shared a recipe for whipped green eggs from Paprika.
Yes the pizza dosa exists: "The thing is stuffed with bottled tomato sauce and grated pizza cheese. The wrapper is a plain dosa that's been brushed with more tomato sauce as it is griddle-cooked on one side in the conventional manner." Sietsema thinks it tastes awful.
For those of you keeping tab, we round-up restaurant openings and closings for the month of July.
