I Did Like the Edamame...

First of all, let me just say that all you sushi eating people are nothing short of crazy. CRAZY, I tell you. (And I can say that with authority now because I've actually tasted it instead of just eating veggie tempura in soy sauce.) I didn't even have anything too outlandish either-just a couple of rolls with scallops and salmon. BLARGH! (I do enjoy all the non-fish rolls with just avocado and cucumbers but that doesn't really count.) I absolutely love scallops. But cooked scallops. In a nice cream sauce. (Cold and slimy? Not so much.)

BUT, it was my good friend Russ' birthday and I DO need to try new things so I'm glad i did it. I'm also glad that we went out for ice cream drinks afterwards at At Random, one of the most awesome places in Bay View. And now I can eat all the tempura I want every time we go out for Japanese and Jason can't give me any guff.

Here we are at Izumi's (thanks to Russ for the pictures)

Enjoying a Tokyo Rose and some witty barb from Jason.

You may notice here in the top left I have a full plate of sushi that I am mysteriously not touching. The same cannot be said for Jason.


  1. I'm with you on that! I do like the rolls with salmon in them, but nothing else 'scary'. I'm all about the veggie rolls too - they're so good. Good for you for trying something new though! Everyone down here loves the oysters - blech! Stick with the veggie rolls and that tempura sounds good too! Hans is king of the dragon rolls, I tell him I don't eat anything with antenna's sticking out and spiky things. Crazy!

  2. Wha? Sheesh, woman. At least you tried it. :)

  3. I'm gonna have to go with Jason on this one.
    Sushi rules. Though an acquired taste. I didn't like it either until I went out to dinner with a friend and she kept having sushi, so each time I tried a piece. Then one day I randomly craved it.

  4. I'm with you. I'm amazed at how much people can charge for food that isn't even cooked.
