Guess what we had for dinner...

Saturday night Jake and I went out for some dinner. We went to Sakura - this Japanese "hole-in-the-wall" place that some friends referred us to. They said that the sushi there was good tasting and safe, but still within pocketbook reason.

So I ordered two types of sushi (rice rolls) maki style (we learned that this just means it is cut up). One was oshiko pickled yellow radish sushi and the other was a California Roll #1 shrimp, avocado, & flying fish roe. We weren't quite sure what roe was, but after reading the different kinds (flying fish roe, smelt roe, salmon roe) on the menu I was pretty certain it was fish eggs. And it was. Very tiny orange fish eggs.

Jake ordered a sashimi dish (raw fish) of Hamachi yellowtail . It was really good - at least it was my favorite of all that we ordered. He also order a sushi dish of Sakura Special #2 avocado roll with eel on top. Cooked eel is really mushy. We also got potstickers - which are my favorite Asian food. Oh and hot chocolates - served in chilled Budweiser mugs. It was an experience. We had fun though. Then we went and got ice cream at Baskin Robins to celebrate National Vanilla Ice Cream Day - although neither of us got vanilla.

Well, the fog just keeps rolling in thicker and thicker this morning - guess I should go put something warmer on - I thought it was going to be a warm day.
