Saturday March 25: International District
A Gastronomical Adventure in Seattle's International District
is the preeminent Asian food market in the Pacific Northwest. The store
specializes in importing rare and unusual Asian foods for a clientele
interested in traditional Asian cooking. The store also features a range of
more traditional super market produce and goods.|
I usually cook for myself, and I am always looking for
dishes that are easy and keep well. So I was excited when I came across a
recipe for Japanese cabbage pancakes, Okonomiyaki. I had tried this dish
several years ago in Japan and remembered it as a tasty and easy meal.
The recipe called for
some unusual ingredients though: katsuobushi (dried and shredded tuna), nagaimo
(a yam native to eastern Asia), and dashi (Japanese fish broth). There was only
one place to find these items, Seattle's International District.
western end of King Street is dominated by a Chinese arch, which marks the entrance
to the International District. Beyond this gate is the King
Street Train Station and clock tower.|
Light poles throughout the district are decorated with
yellow and red dragons.
