Sushi, tea, and some other Asian food links

I have been cooking, really! Lately I've either been too busy to take photographs and post them, or the recipes seem kind of ordinary. Anything you'd guys like me to write about?

In the meantime, some neat links:

After I posted about the Sushi layer cake this time, I found another kind of sushi cake by the Whipped Bake Shop in Philadelphia.

I went for all-you-can-eat sushi this weekend at Banc Sushi, yum! I tried red bean ice cream for the first time: amazing, light, and creamy-nutty. (Strangely, did you know Häagen-Dazs makes red bean ice cream? Only in Asia though, I think.)

Kevin Rose explains how to make matcha tea. Anyone have recommendations for a brand I can get in Canada?

He also explains how to make ginger tea (my fave, been making for a while) and interviewed the Sorapot teapot designer, which (especially as I can't afford the teapot) was more interesting from a design and entrepreneurship perspective.

A Life (Time) of Cooking has an interesting post about visiting a market in Cambodia; wow I love the baskets of chilis, limes, and fresh herbs!
