Anyways, if I was forced to eat one type of food for an entire year, I think I would choose sushi. The problem is that I've gotten a little picky about my sushi. I like rolls with avocado, but it has to be just right. I hate it when sushi has hard avocado! Or when certain ingredients overwhelm others. My favorite place for sushi just happens to be in Atlanta, though I hear they have locations in Tennessee as well. Unfortunately, I haven't found a place I really like here.
|My old "usual" at Ru San's.|
At the Ru San's in Midtown, the owner will come to your table when it's your birthday and sing you a song. He even gives you an orange with a little man cut into the peel! It's actually anatomically correct. I kid you not. He uses a carrot. I could not stop laughing the first time I went there for my birthday. That's another reason why I love Ru San's; the people there are usually great.
Now, I'm starting to get into trying to make my own sushi since I can't find a place I really like here. I even have a bamboo rolling mat and paddle. I also have a rice cooker, but I've lent that to my boyfriend for right now (thinking about getting it back soon). I haven't had a chance to try it yet because I wasn't sure which rolls I wanted to try first. I'm sure I'll be trying it soon enough while I'm away from Atlanta.
I have some green tea that would go really well with it!
And, speaking of tea, the winner of The Dapper Lass Tea Giveaway will be announced later today! Remember, there will also be a giveaway coming up in October. Be on the lookout!
