Happy New Year!
Much like I've done every year since December 31st, 2005, I started my day with a visit to Nijiya, Marukai, and Mitsuwa.
I think I've noted that compared to those early years, the variety available has gone down significantly. Probably because of preordering and changing of tastes.
This year, Mitsuwa seemed to have the better "stuffs".
They definitely won out in the protein category......
I did enjoy the "instruction signs" Nijiya put out for items like kazunoko....just in case, you know....you get the urge to try it out.
We enjoyed going out for New Year dinner last year. So I made reservations for an early dinner at Et Voila. Man, we got in at 5pm and there were already folks eating! I'd never seen the place this busy this early......
We then decided to walk on down 30th street and had a nightcap at Toronado.

Sorry to say I'm not one for top ten lists....when it comes to meals and such I guess I'm always looking to the "next one". I'm often, like I'm doing right now, starting to plan three trips ahead.
With that in mind, I'm hoping the upcoming year will help to repair out those torn pages pages....the creases will remain for sure, but I'll be able to read them, reflect, and smile at the memories.
As the year comes to a close, everyone here at mmm-yoso would like to thank you for dropping by and extend best wishes for 2017!
