i’m sure, like me, many people are saddened by the closing of this mitsuwa marketplace inside the little tokyo shopping mall. the mall has not been well managed for the recent years, with stores closing one after another and left empty for awhile. it’s finally been bought out by a korean company, and will now be managed by a team of asian-american investors. upon the closing of mitsuwa, a new supermarket that will carries both asian and american food, will take over and reopen on feb 15, 2009. this mitsuwa has brought many great fond memories to many of us over the years. though we couldn’t go during their steep “everything must go sales”, but we just had to make time to drop by today to bid our goodbyes, before they closes their door for good on monday… *sniff sniff* :”'( ask permission to use image ask permission to use image ask permission to use image ask permission to use image ask permission to use image

straight from LAX, we were too tired to drive around for dinner, and i wanted to do some grocery shopping before heading home, so we decided to have dinner at the mitsuwa marketplace. this is one of the places i frequent for grocery shopping and quick meal with friends at their food court. convenient, fast, cozy, fulfilling. this time, i ordered a beef and tofu don from misasa, and my friend had a burger dinner from china table tokyo hanten. ask permission to use ask permission to use image

the beef and tofu came with a bowl of miso soup, a little tofu cold dish, and a cup of tea. it was statisfying. :) the burger dish came with a little shredded side salad, a patty burger and fried rice, and a cup of clear mushroom soup. this dish is a beyond disappointment… the burger was unacceptably mushy and tasteless. my friend, who isn’t picky on food, couldn’t even finish half of it and was still feeling hungry afterwards. :p
