This Month's Film: Riding Alone for Thousands of Miles
Cuisine: Japanese Chinese

The ingredients I will need to prepare my 'Chinese favorites in Japan' menu are not especially exotic or scarce. In addition to the fresh meats, seafood, and vegetables, I will need wonton wrappers, spring roll wrappers, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, oyster sauce, chili garlic sauce, black bean sauce, chili oil, rice wine, and rice vinegar, all of which I can buy in the ethnic food asile of any supermarket. In fact, with all the Asian cuisine I prepare, I already have all of them in my fridge and pantry.
