Food manufacturers just love wasabi, using this Japanese rhizome (or cheaper American horseradish) to jazz up oils, mayonnaise, dressings, crackers, nuts and even jams. Those looking to experience the trend can find wasabi products in a variety of locations, from neighborhood supermarkets to fancy food stores and Asian markets. Here are some of the wasabi products to look for: Hime Japanese horseradish powder, $2.80 to $4 an ounce. This powder makes a green paste with a flavor as bold as its bright green color.

If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, will a California roll a day keep the dentist at bay? Probably not. But there is a claim that certain compounds found in wasabi, the piquant green horseradish that accompanies sushi and sashimi, can kill the bacteria that cause tooth decay. The notion of wasabi-as-cavity-fighter was developed by Dr. Hideki Masuda, a research director at Ogawa and Co. of Japan, which makes food flavorings and fragrances, including wasabi flavors, but not wasabi paste.

For a smart baby, eat more fish. Although fatty fish, such as salmon, are rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, the government has warned pregnant women to restrict their intake to avoid exposure to high levels of mercury. But researchers at the Harvard School of Medicine have found a diet high in omega-3 may outweigh the risks posed by environmental pollution. They found that pregnant women who ate more than two servings of fish a week had children who performed better on verbal, visual and motor skills tests than their peers.

Alizee, by my count, is the fourth restaurant to move into the space in the Colonnade once known as the Polo Grill. Probably we came to review it too soon. Some promising amenities, such as a wine cellar with a communal tasting table, haven't materialized yet, and there are still both functional and cosmetic touches to be applied. On the other hand, there's nothing introductory about the prices. But it's not any one thing that Alizee is lacking, but more essentially an identity. There's a vaporous sound to that name, Alizee, that fits a restaurant that doesn't yet feel substantial, or where the food doesn't match the carpeting.

Bedrock's Sidecar Grill feels like the kind of contemporary retro spot where characters on teen television shows gather for french fries and pizza. Think of it as the Peach Pit for the quickly evolving west side. This bright new dining space is attached to the Bedrock pool lounge and nightclub, which itself has the easygoing vibe of a university union - two levels of boozy fun in a mammoth old bank building, with seven pool tables at last count. The Sidecar Grill is sweet-looking, its walls and tile floor done up in the colors of midcentury kitchen appliances, the booths with Formica-style tabletops.

If you're looking for a new adventure in dining, look no further than Locust Point. There's where Nasu Blanca has set up shop, just down the road from another popular upscale eatery, the Wine Market. While the restaurant's theme is Japanese/Spanish cuisine, Nasu Blanca's origins are strictly homegrown. Owner/chef David Sherman, son of retired Danaher Corp. chief executive officer George Sherman, grew up here, as did his best friend and sous-chef, Christian Ciscle (whose father is former art gallery owner George Ciscle)

The sandwich has been around some 200 years, and we haven't stopped loving it.From the simple peanut butter and jelly, to the sophisticated grilled prosciutto panini, you can bet that between two slices of bread there will always be plenty of combinations to satisfy just about anyone.Sandwiches are easy to eat, the perfect portable food. A staple of brown-bag lunches, they can be as conservative, or as cutting edge, as you like.Consider the club sandwich: To me, this perfect pairing of flavors and textures is always a safe haven on a foreign menu.

Sushi rolled in seaweed, or maki, is the ultimate compact appetizer or meal - rice,vegetables and raw or cooked fish in a neat, tight package. While there's an art to complicated, beautiful sushi concoctions, you don't have to be a sushi chef to roll your own simple version of this everyday Japanese food. The two Chinese characters for sushi, translated as "preserved fish" and "fish fermented in rice and salt," first appeared in Japan at the beginning of the 8th century A.D., write Kimiko Barber and Hiroki Takemura in the book Sushi: Taste and Technique.

Green Leaf, an unassuming little jewel of a restaurant, is almost hidden from view in a corner of Shawan Plaza, overshadowed by the Giant supermarket, Ledo's pizza restaurant, Radio Shack and Hallmark store. But it's worth finding. The York Road restaurant, which opened this year, delivers what it calls "Japanese healthy cuisine," a description that's only partially accurate. The food is healthy as long as one skips the deep-fried wonton dumplings, crispy shrimp and batter-dipped tempura.
