When you have a meal do you save the best for last?
For an example, if this plate was set in front of me…
I would know right off the bat that my favourite part of this meal would either be the shrimp, salmon, or avocado. So, I would proceed my trying a piece of each. A piece of shrimp, a pience of salmon, and a piece of avocado.
And then I would make my decision. What ever I loved the most at that particular moment would be my last bite.
Well, today's post is similar to that. I've done several recap post about the Healthy Living Summit, but I have one more – the best one.
My sushi experience.
My sis and I decided to plan a big sushi outing while in Boston. She chose the restaurant and I helped spread the word!
We ended up going to a sushi restaurant called Cafe Sushi which is located in Cambridge, MA. The moment I saw the menu I knew this was going to be the best sushi experience I've ever had. The menu offers types of fish that I had never ever heard of before, so I knew I was in for a treat!
I definitely treated myself that night and splurged on some pricey sashimi, but it was all so worth it!
I started with a salad (I always need my greens!) and then I ordered 10 different pieces of sashimi. Five pieces were from the Chef's Sampler and the other five were ordered a la carte.
My a la carte order:
Two pieces of makerel (saba), greek sea bass (branzino), european sea bream (orata), and ocean trout (umi masu).
The mackerel was the best mackerel I've ever had. It was so delicate. I loved the flavour.
The sea bream, sea bass, and ocean trout were all new types of sashimi to me. My favourite out of the three was definitely the ocean trout. It reminded me of salmon, but didn't have as much of a "fishy" taste. The sea bream was tender, but the sea bass was quite tough; it reminded me a lot of red snapper sashimi.
The five pieces of sashimi that I ordered for the Chef's Sampler were off their "in season" menu which was written on a chalk board behind the chefs at their prep counter.
I remember ordering this scallop (which was phenomenal – so tender!)
A piece of butterfish (excellent!)
And then I forget the other three pieces of sashimi that I chose :(
I knew I should have wrote it down… oops.
I had a great night enjoying one of my favourite cuisines, new types of fish, and special friends <3
We had a great turn out! This is only one of the two tables that came! :) I think Sara and I are pretty could planners ;)
My last bite of the night was fro yo from my girls' favourite place – Berry Line!
But, my last piece of sashimi was the mackerel! It wasn't a new to me fish, but it was the best of them all! The scallop came in a close second ;)
My last bite of mackerel!
