    So, I have this powder, and want wasabi, the green potent paste that really cleans you out and make your nose sting.

    Am I SOL, or is there a trick to making the sauce?

    Duh.

    O.K., I'll do it. I just did pick up the hottest mustard in the shop. Guess i keep it for a different dish.

    Still can't find the seaweed salad, but I'll keep trying. There are international food retailers in the area.

    In a small bowl, mix powder with a small amount of water. Mix it until it is a paste. Leave it in a clump in the bowl and invert the bowl over a dish. Leave it like that for at least 10 minutes. That gives the powder time to fully rehydrate.

    I can find sea weed salad here in the grocery store. It isn't as good as what I got when I lived in Hawaii.

    I'm 70 blocks west of Front and Market, Philadelphia [65 blocks from Independence Hall].

    I'll throw the bike in the back of the truck today, and drive to W. Philadelphia. From there, a nice ride into Center City and Chinatown should yield a few international food stores.

    ISO - fresh [pickled?] ginger, the thin slices, pinkish.
    - Seaweed salad. The spot in Beaufort NC where I first ate it gets it in sealed baggies. I had a long talk with the chef between sets [I was down there last week gigging] and both him, and my dental hygienist, say it is quite common.

    I grew up in Philly and lived there off and on ofr over 50 years (probably 44 out of 50) I know your area somewaht. I used to live down in CC 10th and Pine Sts. but aloso Mayfair, Germantown W. Mt Airy, and other areas. If I recall correctly there are some good Asian Markets down on washington ave around 10th st. Try Reading Terminal markets, Chinatown over on race street. Also if you drive there are a couple International Markets out on Cheltenhanm Ave and one over on tabor Rd. Enjoy.

    Yep, I just checked with a buddy. He mentioned the Washington Ave slant. that is a pretty bleak area for a pleasurable pedal. ;f

    I'll try Race Street. I did a six week job there a few years ago, and explored it pretty well. I know a few hole-in-the-wall shops selling live fish, that have a surprising array of condiments.

    The Taco House is still there, on Pine Street. Still pretty crappy, but filling. Prices have gone up, a bit.

    used to be Tippy's Taco's 4 for 2 dollars. I bartended at Dirty Franks and the Pine Street beverage Room. Is Layla's/Sabra's still there on the corner of 13th & Pine 1.50 for a falafel sandwich

    I'll bicycle by in a couple hours. There is a Mediterranian restaurant around that corner; the name was never noted.

    Dirty Frank's is still the same.
