    This place has dry aged beef, prime cuts of all the major high end steaks, wagyu/kobe beef, plus duck, other fowl and oddball stuff like gator all on a regular basis.

    I was going to ask if the powder is actually the real thing?

    I am lucky to have a grocery nearby called Central Market, they sell pretty much every gourmet(and staple) food ever eaten, at some point in the year, at a reasonable price. I have tried so much new food and drinks because of Central Market. One time, they had Kobe Wagyu bottom round, for less than $10 a pound. Cleanest roast flavor ever.

    the dry powder wasabi is not made from wasabi, but from dried horseradish and dye. Does not come close to the real deal because the cultivation of wasabi is relatively costly and difficult to produce on a large scale.

    I pulled my little tube of Tsunami brand wasabi-like substance out of the fridge and the label says that it actually contains some wasabi.........and about 10 other ingredients.

    I just went to Mitsuwa. I couldn't find it so I asked a young dude working there. He gave me a wierd looks and said "You mean the root? That's EXPENSIVE! Like $100/lbs." When I gave him the "no ****, Sherlock" look, he added, "We used to carry it but nobody bought it." So, I asked one of the sushi ladies. She pointed to the green paste and shrugged... It's a conspiracy, I tell you!
