I'd been trying to get out to a sushi place for a week or two, and when jss1113
posted his recent trip for some, it got my mouth watering even more. Last Thursday, kitschparade
and I went to I Love Sushi on Lake Union
. It was my first trip, but at work we have a huge file of all the local sushi places with notes on each, and I Love Sushi had a number of positive votes. It was great! Reasonable prices and very good sushi in a great atmosphere. We did go a little overboard, though: I ordered the 8-pc. combination and unagi nigiri, we split a Rainbow Roll, and JD ordered the tuna sashimi (yes?) and Tropical Roll (which is back on the menu!). That last is avocado, strawberry, kiwi, mango and salmon, with blueberry soy and wasabi mayo. Mmmmmmm! All very fresh and tasty. The unagi didn't look as good as I'd hoped it would (it's my favorite), but the taste and texture turned out to be spot-on.
I tried making an improv Turkey Divan casserole over the weekend, but my cheddar sauce broke; I must have heated it too quickly. I was able to salvage a few meals out of it, though, and with a fresh batch of sauce, it'll be as tasty as ever.
Also on the menu were blueberry (thanks, PPM!
) pancakes (thanks, Alton!
) with Grade B maple syrup (thanks, TJ's!
), and they turned out fabulous. I wanted to make fried chicken, but I ran out of flour making pancakes. So now I have to lug a huge sack of flour to the gym on my way home from work. Awesome.
