How to find the best Japanese food in New York
New York City is a foodie hotbed, and so it was no surprise when I visited the city for the first time in January.
It was a week after the city celebrated the opening of a new sushi restaurant called the “Yogurt Culture” in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.
But the menu at the new spot is not what you might expect.
At the front desk of the restaurant, I was greeted by a woman in a pink dress who said the sushi menu was not what I was expecting.
She told me she was a chef who wanted to create a menu that reflected the local culture, and that it was designed to be more inclusive and to provide an opportunity for people to meet and experience Japanese food.
She explained that it would be better if people in the city were invited to participate in the menu development process, and if the restaurant could raise enough money to pay for it.
In her experience, most of the restaurants she was approached with did not understand the importance of inclusion and wanted to pay homage to what she called the Japanese culture of samosas and izakaya, or traditional Japanese dishes.
The new sushi menu, she said, was designed with a lot of Japanese people in mind.
“It’s not just for people of color, it’s for everyone,” she said.

According to the restaurant’s owner, Masayoshi Suzuki, the idea for the menu came about after a group of Japanese students came to New York to study abroad.
“We were there for a few months,” he said.
“It’s a place where they go and eat, and we wanted to make it accessible to everyone.
We were looking for something to bring to the table.”
I was struck by the fact that most of my fellow diners had never heard of samotas before, and had never had a samosa.
But after a bit of research, I learned that they are made from fermented vegetables called sago, which are served with a variety of different types of rice, noodles, and sauces.
They’re also commonly served with egg noodles and, in my case, with a few types of kimchi.
I ordered a samo as a samgye, or a small samosa, which comes with a salad, and it was filled with rice and vegetables and had a light and sweet flavor.
I had ordered two samos to share with friends, and each person took one, and then a friend took the other.
I took a plate and asked the waitress if they could serve me two plates of samo, so I could try both.
She replied, “We’ll be happy to help.”
After ordering a samosa, I asked if the server could serve us a rice noodle.
She asked me, “Are you a vegetarian?”
I said, “Yes, I’m vegan.” She said, “So you are trying to serve us meat?
Because that’s the only meat in the restaurant.”
She told us she was looking for a vegetarian dish.
When I told her I was a vegetarian, she replied, “If you don’t want meat in your meal, I can’t serve you.
It’s not acceptable.”
I was surprised, she continued, to hear the chef who was responsible for the sushi said that he was not vegetarian.
We both agreed to try it, and she served me the meat-free samosai.
It was a good start, but I felt the samosasa was still too low in fat, and the rice was too soft.
I also felt the dish was lacking in taste.
I wanted more.
I asked again, and this time she said the chef wanted to try the meat and cheese, and asked me to order a larger bowl.
I told him that I could only eat one bowl, and I would not share it.
I was shocked that she was even asking, but she continued to try and convince me to try a larger plate.
She said she would call me when I had finished my bowl of samosa and she would tell me when she would be happy.
I agreed to share the rice noodles with a friend, but when I was done, I felt that the meal was lacking, and decided to call back to ask about the dishes menu.
She was upset that I had not taken her up on her offer to try more of the dishes, and after she hung up, I told the server that I would have to order another bowl, which I did.

While the sushi was delicious, I didn’t feel satisfied with the samosa portion of the meal.
I thought the sauce tasted too sour, and there were too many ingredients.
