Hey ya'll! I haven't cooked, but I did go to my two favorite restaurants and had some excellent food.... On Friday's Menu: Sushi from my favorite local spot - We started out with some Miso Soup... After that, we had Kaki Fry which is Tempura Oysters with Vegetables in a Sweet and Sour dipping sauce... Then we had my favorite, Yellowtail Sashimi with Quail Egg Shooters that would make you slap your momma.... They were out of Toro, so we got Surf Clam Nigiri instead. It was excellent, but it would be a while before I order it again... We polished off the meal by ordering two novelty rolls. The one on top is called a Jazz Roll and it featured Crawfish, the one on the bottom is a house speciality novelty roll with Crab-based concoction... Overall it was a wonderful meal. This is my favorite place to get sushi because the chefs are very skilled, care about what they make, the seafood is top-notch, yet it isn't a buttoned-up, stuffy atmosphere. I usually dress up when I go to dinner, but I like having the option of going somewhere in jeans. Besides that, my husband likes dressing casually. On Tonight's Menu: My Favorite Tex Mex - We started out with chips and salsa no pics After that we had Pulpo(Octopus) Ceviche. We always order it when we go here... Then we shared some Chiles Rellenos, not the best I've ever had... Finally, we had this ugly delicious bastard Mojarra Frita, a whole fried fish. We spiced it up with the array of hot salsas that they bring to the table in little jars... Sorry the pictures look like crap, I tried to snap them quickly. ...and a song....this one has been stuck in my head today, so its the winner.
