Hello Japan! November: Are you hungry?
November's challenge was to eat some Japanese food and take pictures.
My husband and I have a standing date on Fridays at Kaori, our local Japanese restaurant, where Gino makes us some of the most heavenly dishes. We usually have sushi, but sometimes we get steaming bowls of udon noodle soup or a salmon bento. The noodle soup is marvelous on a cold night. Here is our meal from November 20th:
Me and Mr. Distortion starting our meal with miso. Apparently I haven't learned how to keep my chest out of my food yet. And yes, that is beer in the background. I think a nice cold glass of Asahi is a good complement to some of the spicy tuna dishes.
This one is a variety of salad greens with vinegared seaweed on top.
Roll Gino 32.
Spicy tuna and shizo leaf wrapped in seaweed. I don't recall what else is in there besides the rice, but it is delicious!
Yellow Tail Avocado Roll.
One of my favorites.
Lightly cooked and drizzled with olive oil (and Gino's secret spices!).
Summer Hand Roll.
Spicy tuna, shizo leaf and vegetables all wrapped up like an ice cream cone in seaweed.
