Mitsuwa's Kyushu & Okinawa Fair Is Happening This Weekend

Mitsuwa fairs seem to happen pretty frequently, but even so, they're always reason to drop all lunch and dinner plans and take on the parking-lot madness for a taste of whatever Japanese treats and delicacies they're serving. 

This time, it's the Kyusyu & Okinawa Fair, and it's happening at the Costa Mesa location from now until Sunday. Some special items on the list: Hakata Nagahama tonkotsu ramem in a rich, pork-bone soup, mackerel sushi wrapped in kelp, mentaiko (seasoned cod roe) and a pie crust filled with custard pudding for dessert. 

For me, the best part was the Ikinari dango (pictured), a Japanese snack I've been missing. Sweet red beans wrapped in mochi-like dango skin, then steamed to gooey perfection.  

More details on the fair here.
