Sumo Stew Returns – Tuesday July 17th In Brooklyn


I must admit, I have attended Sumo Stew in New York, and the chanko, while completely unconventional, was absolutely delicious. The next gathering to watch sumo and eat chanko will be July 17th at Arrogant Swine, 173 Morgan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11206. On the menu is what is being called “North Carolina BBQ-style Whole Hog chankonabe”

For more information or to buy tickets, head on over to Sumo Stew’s web site!

Sumo Stew Saturday


Your humble Associate Editor looks to be in the New York area over this weekend due to work commitments. I am therefore letting Tachiai readers that I am going to attend Saturday’s Sumo Stew event in Brooklyn.

The folks who are putting on this event have even generously offered a discount code, KANPAI10, for readers to use if they want to claim any last minute tickets. Personally, I love Chanko, I love sumo, and I find sumo fans to be some of the best folks on Earth. So if you are in the area, consider making it an evening.

Sumo Stew / Chanko Nabe Saturday in Brooklyn


Sumo-StewThe amazing culinary wizards with Sumo Stew are at it again. This Friday they are at The Brooklyn Kitchen, 100 Frost Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211, serving a seasonal vegetarian chankonabe by Chef Andrew Gerson. There is also a special Rakugo performance. I am going to take a wild guess who that is, and now I am pissed I am not in New York this weekend.

Get your tickets here, and go enjoy an evening of good food, good sumo, and some damn fine rakugo.  Seems there is also a Facebook group. Go forth and be one with the chanko!
