Ready...Set...Go Tampopo

After shopping online at AsianFoodGrocer.com last month, and shopping in San Francisco's Japantown last week, with the exception of my fresh seafood and vegetables, I'm all set for my Tampopo dinner & a movie. I called Vallergas, my favorite gourmet grocery today to inquire about how often they get deliveries of fresh fish and when I should plan to shop for it. The butcher told me that I should call in a few days ahead of time, or visit in person to place my order for the seafood I will need for my menu. He recommended that I wait until the day of the dinner to pick up my fresh fish and seafoods, and promised to have my order ready and waiting for me. So...I guess I'll be shopping for all my fresh produce that day as well.
