Birthday Pho

Forgot to include this in my other post, but I had pho for lunch on my birthday

Today I had ramen for lunch. Yum

"Nagahama Ramen" @ Menya

“Nagahama Ramen” @ Menya. I now think I should have stirred up the bowl a bit to show some of the noodles.

The pork was awesome; it was incredibly soft and melted in my mouth. I believe the pink stuff is gari (ginger), and I don’t really like the taste it gave the broth. I had their miso ramen the last time I went to Menya and I think I prefer that to this.

Missing: A picture of wonton noodles.

In other words, it’s my birthday and I’m 20 this year.

Shrimp Gyoza: How not to do it

I went to an all-you-can-eat Japanese restaurant with a couple of friends the other day. I ate a shitton of slightly-below-average to mediocre Japanese-ish food. Like, holy crap I ate a lot. I felt so, so fat the whole rest of the night.

I didn’t take pictures of any other dishes but the shrimp gyoza LOL

So lazy!

So lazy!

Do you see why I just had to take a photo? Well, that’s one way to do it…

(It wasn’t very good. In fact, it was pretty awful.)

My Food is on Fire

Well, we went back to Sushi Elephant for dinner tonight. (I’m thinking we’re going to end up being regulars here, at this rate)

I ordered Ebi Mayo, which is deep fried shrimp with a mayonnaise sauce, and the “Flaming Dragon Roll”, which had real crab, smoked salmon, and cucumber, with unagi on top.

And it was on fire. (Not actually on fire, but there was fire on my plate, see below)

I really just wanted to see what a sushi roll with real crab in it tasted like, as well as to order something different, because trying new food is cool.

It was ok, but it was kinda pricey ($15) and IMO the unagi and its sauce sort of overpowered the crab and salmon.

When I finally get to use my gift voucher thing for this other sushi place, we’re going all-out. Mark my words. @_________________@
