It's safe there, and uh, comfortable.
But the older I get, the more I realize that the amount of risk in any given proposition is directly tied to the amount of possible reward.
That being said..I REALLY never had any desire to try Sushi, EVER. It took some persistance on Chris' part. He really wanted me to try it..so a few years ago, I think right before I was pregnant with Sydney, I agreed to try it.
We went to some strip mall sushi joint....it came highly recommended...and it was Ohhh...Kaaaaayyy but I was not overly amazed.
Then I was pregnant, so I didn't even think about trying sushi again for a long time. Until, a Mikado opened up in Sandy. Chris was really fired up to try it out. So, we had a lunch date during Christmas Break last year.
This place was/is AMAZING! They use Crab in their California rolls, not Krab. Makes a big difference. I finally discovered why peeps tend to get so passionate about Sushi....it was YUM-O here!
Since then we've gone about 3-4 times, and instead of just going along for the ride, I really enjoy it! See? It pays to try something new every once in a while...just like I tell my kids, "How do you KNOW you don't like it, if you won't even try it?"
This is our spread from last Friday night. That red sushi with the globs of orange on top? Tuna. So buttery, melts in your mouth! The little orange balls? Flying fish eggs, they snap.crackle.pop in your mouth...it's like a mini-party in there. And if you decide to take the plunge and give it a try, make sure you add a slice of fresh ginger to your California Roll, deeeeee-lish! And the Miso Soup is a great starter!
Peee Essssss......No octopus right out of the gate....trust me...it tastes like a rubber sink stopper that's been at the bottom of the ocean for like 20 years. Ewwww...
