Well, a traditional meal if you are over in East Asia. Or if you’re me, it’s something that I’ve been doing for the last six-ish years. That’s right, it’s sushi time!
This year for my birthday meal, Lindz and I went out to Osaka with Matt and Janessa. Since it was my birthday I got to get whatever I wanted (not sure how that is different from any other time we’ve gone there, but I just rolled with it). I decided that it was past due on ordering a boat load of sushi. I mean that quite literally.
Osaka has an item on their menu called the Love Boat. It contains 10 pieces of sushi, 18 pieces of sashimi, a rainbow roll, and a dragon roll. All served in a wooden boat. Hence the name.
All of the pieces were “chef’s choice,” so from the outset I wasn’t expecting anything too lavish as far as selection.
I was right about the selection. A lot of tuna, salmon, and the like. Nothing off the beaten path, but all very tasty and a lot of it.
Ever since Matt and Janessa ordered deep fried crab in RI, we’ve been ordering it as a an appetizer. Been working good so far.
Since I can put away a lot of sushi, I finished off Lindz’s half and still ordered a couple of extra pieces to cap off the meal.
