Good eats

Do you ever have a day that's just full of good food? That was yesterday for me. It actually all started on Thursday when I had a sushi craving. It was so tempting just to run out and take advantage of Sushi Nami's tsu-nami special ($1-$2 off selected menu items) but my roomie convinced me to hold off.

I'm glad I did because it propelled my productivity for the rest of Thursday and all of Friday. Whenever I found myself losing focus I told myself "do it for the sushi!" It also helped me push through my 10k run.

When tsu-nami hour arrived, I was not disappointed. I ordered veggie tempura to start which was cooked to perfection. It was a good selection of veggies as well - eggplant, zucchini, sweet potato, red pepper and asparagus.

To follow I had the spicy salmon roll (salmon, tempura bits, green onion and spicy sauce) along with Firecracker's Dream (avocado, spicy mayo, tempura bits, and bread crumbs).

The Firecrackers Dream was amazing. The perfect amount crunchiness from the bread crumbs, and smoothness from the avocado. It is officially among my favourite sushi dishes!

  1. Wow that veggie tempura looks amazing! I wish I liked fish so I could be a real sushi fan, but I just can't! Haha. :) You have such a knack for finding the coolest restaurants!
