I was in Hawaii and wanted a coconutty drink but am allergic to pineapples so they made me a coconut colada. That was one of the best drinks ever. Mangos are a favorite so I will definitely be making this. Thanks for the recipe.

Oh and we used to go the depa chika because many "foreign" items not available at regular stores were available there. This was in the 70s and 80s.

I grew up in Japan and definitely thought that the packaging was bordering on obsessive but I recently read something about why cookies and senbeis were often wrapped individually. Crackers, cookies and senbeis would lose their crunch from the humidity so the individual packaging helps prevent this after the bag is opened.

Oh my gosh. I love the Earl Grey MarTEAni at the Pegu Club. I will definitely be trying this recipe at home.

Thank you!

@ eprewitt - that's exactly what I thought when I saw this. It's a furoshiki!

Oh!!! They are called biwa in Japan and I grew up eating them. I miss them terribly and they don't travel well so I don't see them too often in NYC. We ate them as is but I've seen them put on top of cakes, tarts, baked in cakes, etc.

Enjoy them!
