254. Sushi, a "new" favorite!!! We've been discovering sushi and the amazing nuance from roll to roll.
Now, when sushi was first all the rage, I just couldn't bring myself to even conceive of eating raw fish. Ewwww! Till now...
My daughter encouraged me to, "Just try it Mom...it's not that bad." So we took the challenge. The restaurant of choice was Wild Ginger. A beautiful restaurant with great atmosphere and delicious food. The menu is filled with Asian cuisine.
We ordered a Pork Fried Rice, so we could at least keep our feet on the ground with staple Chinese food. And, a Volcano Roll with shrimp tempura, cucumber with spicy tuna and tobiko, a Kamikaze Roll with shrimp tempura, spicy tuna topped with tuna and eel, and the Scorpion King with soft shell crab, spicy tuna, cucumber, lettuce, avocado and eel sauce.
I have to say...I am in love! Delightful explosion of flavor in your mouth. And the Wasabi rush in your sinuses.
