Get ready for scrumptious Japanese food and shopping for Asian housewares and gifts at the Tacoma Buddhist Temple’s Food & Craft Bazaar on Sunday, Nov. 3.
The annual community event features a variety of hot entrees, a bake sale, handicrafts and rummage sale.
Back by popular demand is our Tofu Bowl, a dish created by Masayo Kakihara, wife of former resident Minister Kojo Kakihara several years ago. Using a fish soup base, she combined tofu, onions, fried tofu and eggs in a soy sauce umami mixture served warm over rice.
The menu includes other fall favorites, such as beef curry, pork chow mein, unagi (eel) rice bowl, chicken teriyaki, and Spam musubi rice balls.
Sweets include daifuku mochi (sweet rice) pastries, yaki manju confections and homemade pie. Hand-made Japanese dessert specialties and other goodies are available at the bake sale.
Menu items range from $3 to $10.
New this year, all menu items will be self-serve for take-out or diners may eat their selections in the temple social hall.
The rummage sale is a treasure trove of gently used and new Asian dishware, vases, Japanese decorative dolls, books, handicrafts, appliances, kimono outfits and more, all at bargain prices.
The Tacoma Buddhist Temple’s Food & Craft Bazaar lasts just four hours – Don’t miss it!
