Sushi Lunch @ Sen Nari

Went to a sushi place for lunch with a co-worker

It looks authentic.

We had a table in one of their tatami rooms.

They have 4 kinds of lunch special ($20), sushi, chirashi, unagi bowl and sashimi. I really wanted uni and salmon roe so ordered Sushi combo B ($26).

Sushi Combo B $26

I appreciate generous amount of salmon roe and melting tuna. However, I was a little disappointed when I had the first piece. I think rice is too cold and packed too tight. In Japan, I realized how important sushi rice was. Sushi rice is supposed to be lukewarm and loosely packed. Your experience would be totally different.

Uni 🙂

Orange was served to refresh.

Oaxacan Cuisine @ El Jacalito

We’ve been waiting for several months to come here. First time we tried, they were closed for remodel/expansion in August.

They specialize in Oaxacan Food.

Had no idea what the dishes look like

Salsa is good but very spicy.

Inside the restaurant

Since salsa is very spicy, I needed Horchata.
