Went out for sushi at Sushi Yoko
Friday night with myrialux
, right before the storm, and got to drive home in pouring rain and lightning. It's very close to the new house, which is on the route back to the apartment complex, so I naturally took the opportunity to point out to myrialux
as we were driving by the house that if we lived there we'd be home by now.
Sushi restaurant verdict: very good. The atmosphere seems high-end, but the diners were in casual clothing and they had no problems with letting Toby in wearing shorts and T-shirt. For starters, he and I had white tuna sashimi, and I had a quail egg*. Toby had a Seattle Sunset roll (crab meat, cream cheese, asparagus top w/ smoked salmon, avocado), which was very pretty but he said only average, and a T-Mex roll which doesn't appear to be on the online menu, but which was very good - I had a few pieces, too. I don't remember what was in it except that it was topped with white tuna and salsa. :) I had the Longhorn Roll, which is also not on the online menu but IIRC was basically a California roll (crab, avocado, cucumber) with slices of steak on top**, with some sort of basalmic vinaigrette. It was deelish. We're definitely going back. On the way out, we noticed a bunch of small boxes with names on the wall, and asked the hostess what they were. She said they were personal chopsticks for regulars, which we both thought was so pretentious that it was hilarious and we loved it. :D
Saturday, running around to the property management office to get our deposit form thingy signed, and then I had to work. Sunday, after discovering that the freezer had stayed open all night, I threw everything out*** and went to lunch with Toby, cleaned the kitchen and ran a couple of dishwasher loads, emptied out the fridge since most stuff in there was getting fuzzy anyway, did three loads of laundry, and cleaned the bathroom. And then collapsed and watched the next episode of Dexter
on the DVD I've got with Toby.
I'M SURE YOU WERE ALL DYING TO KNOW THAT
* I have a total addiction to these little things. The way they're served is raw, with the top nipped off and a drop or two of sriracha sauce, propped up on a wad of wasabi. And, in the case of Sushi Yoko, a bit of some other sauce as well and a small tangle of thin green onion rings, which added a bit of texture. You eat these guys like they're a shot - sucking the whole thing down at once. Mmmmm.
** For those of you who aren't particularly adventurous in eating, I hasten to assure you that the crab (or krab) and steak are cooked in this one. I like both raw and cooked sushi.
*** Possibly not necessary, as it was packed full and there were blue ice things in there, but it made me nervous enough that it wasn't worth keeping the mostly-empty ice cream containers, leftover rice that needed to be thrown out anyway, and half-full freezer-burned vegetables. I have enough gastric issues that are triggered by anxiety that eating anything from that freezer would have made me sick even if it was perfectly healthy. And we're moving within the next few weeks anyway: less to move!Crossposted to my Dreamwidth account at http://telophase.dreamwidth.org/1573019.html. You can comment here or there.
