Had some AMAZING sushi & sashimi last night. Inarizushi (sweet fried tofu pillows) stuffed with burdock & brown rice; futomaki (fat seaweed rolls) stuffed with white rice, scallion, chiles, & tempura asparagus; hosomaki (skinny seaweed rolls) stuffed with white rice & cucumber; hosomaki stuffed with white rice & avocado; hosomaki stuffed with white rice & pickled radish; uramaki (rice on the outside rolls) stiffed with asparagus, sesame greens, & avocado; gunkanmaki (soft "warship bombs") stuffed with brown rice & superfine carrot; gunkanmaki stuffed with white rice & assorted sea vegetables; gunkanmaki stuffed with white rice & fermented soybean; a large assortment of nigirizushi (familiar, hand-formed sushi) featuring various combinations of brown or white rice, avocado, sweet fried tofu, shiitake mushroom, asparagus, chiles, burdock, pickled radish, radish sprout, & dried gourd; and sashimi of perfectly steamed & cooled broccoli, tempura asparagus, tempura yam, superfine carrot, superfine daikon radish, avocado, & sweet fried tofu. The familiar soy sauce, wasabi paste, & pickled ginger as condiments, as well as the unfamiliar kinome (prickly ash leaf), umeboshi (plum and perilla) paste, & mouth-numbing sansho peppercorn.
Wanda had a bowl of miso/tofu/seaweed soup & a ridiculously huge roll of white rice, spicy lobster salad, tempura shrimp, thinly-sliced conch, & tempura banana all wrapped with beet-tinted soybean paper & dressed with mango puree. (That alongside liberally sampling the obscene amount delivered to me.)
All washed down with 300ml of delicious microbrewed milky sake from Oregon.
Looked like a gutbuster when the freakin' boat of food was delivered, but I ate it all & still felt fresh & light. A memorable meal!
