WIAW-A cool Sushi experience

by Chelcie on May 30, 2012

Good Morning!

happy WIAW

Breakfast

a yogurt bowl combo! In the bowl went plain greek yogurt, blueberries, granola, mango butter, and almond butter

the granola I’ve been buying is from a local company in Carlisle, MA and it is AMAZING. If your interested in finding out the name of it let me know!

Snackage

throughout the day I snacked on a couple rice cakes, a cheese string, and an apple. The rice cakes and cheese string were on my way to work and the apple was right before I went to the Mall with my friend Molly

Lunch

After Molly and I did a little shopping we decided to check out the relatively new sushi restaurant at the Mall called Wasabi

the restaurant is located in the middle of the mall and all the sushi comes around on a conveyer belt so you can just pick up what you want from your seat and eat it! how cool right?!

I picked up a couple rolls right away that looked really delicious

one was a spicy tuna type roll and the other one was cucumber avocado topped with imitation crab and seaweed salad. they were both so so good

spicy tuna sashimi..my mouth was on FIRE after eating this

we picked up a baja tuna roll to share which had spicy tuna, avocado, and I think was topped with siracha sauce..it was also really good

I was looking through the menu and saw a roll called the “Lucky Roll” that I really wanted to try but didn’t see on the conveyer belt so we asked our waitress and she ordered it for us!

the roll was filled with mango and salmon and topped with a spicy sauce. If the mango was more ripe the roll would of been better but it was still pretty good

for dessert we decided to be adventurous and pick up this really weird looking Mochi cake

the inside was a red bean puree which didn’t taste that bad..just kind of a weird texture..but the outside I just could not eat it was too weird for me lol but it was fun to try

Dinner

after work (I passed my validation test so now I’m an official waitress woo hoo!!) my mom, brother, and I went out to dinner at a place called Maxwells

I started out by ordering the cheese plate as my appetizer

i ate all the cheese except for the blue cheese, a couple crostini, and all the chutney..I’m pretty sure it was a fig and cranberry chutney..it was delishh espeically paired with the cheeses

for my entree I got the fish special of the night

it was some type of white fish cooked in a white wine and mushroom sauce over a risotto cake and wilted spinach..it looks a lot better than it tasted..it wasn’t bad but it was just okay. I didn’t even really make a dent in it because I was already pretty full

Dessert

we weren’t going to order any more dessert but I really wanted some ice cream so the waiter told me to order the warm chocolate bread pudding because it came with a scoop of ice cream

a candle for my brothers birthday that was last week:) Well in case your curious the bread pudding didn’t come with any gelato like the waiter said, but OMG.

literally the best bread pudding I’ve ever had. I don’t even normally like bread pudding. but this was heavenly..me and my brother had no problem finishing this dessert

*****

I get the day off work today and its not nice out:( Maybe another Mall trip is in order? we shall see

I think I’m planning on cooking dinner tonight so maybe I’ll finally have a new recipe to share..its about time right?!

I hope everyone has a great day!

That sushi restaurant sounds really cool! I feel like I’d probably be more likely to try something new if I could SEE it rather than just read about it on the menu!

That is definitely an interesting sushi restaurant!! I actually saw a conveyor belt with sushi on the Amazing Race last season!

Congrats on getting the waitress job! I’m jealous of your sushi feast! haha. I don’t like bread pudding either (ew, soggy bread) but I have to admit the one in the picture looks pretty delicious.

I know I feel the same way but I’m telling you this was definitely an exception it was like eating melted chocolate!

I’ve always wanted to go to a sushi place like that! I’m not a big sushi fan but I bet (hope) there would be something there that I would like :)

The best thing I ate recently was my mom’s homemade potato salad and the rib eye steak she grilled on the bbq, YUM! I have a question for you, though, if you don’t mind? :) What is your favorite almond butter? I tried a few that I loved, but have bought several not-so-good jars recently. Yours always looks so moist and yummy! :)

Thank you so much! I LOVE Justin’s Maple also – just wish it wasn’t 11 bucks! I’m headed to Trader Joe’s tonight. Thanks again :D

Haha that’s such a random sushi place!!! I love it! I think I’d like that. As long as I could be sure I grabbed the veggie sushi, haha
