Hi everyone, I hope you're all having a great weekend so far! I'm sorry I've been a little MIA this week--I've been a little preoccupied with planning mine and Ruben's upcoming camping trip next month in Washington! It's been a bit over a year since we've been back to Ruben's home state, so it'll be really nice to see and spend time with his family. It's also going to be my first time camping since 2002, so I've been doing a bit of research on what to wear, what to bring, what to expect, etc. But I digress.
Our latest foodie adventure takes us to Tomo, after we saw a girl on MTV eating sushi using a knife and fork, and decided that we also felt like eating sushi. I don't know why she was eating it like that, (it's actually just as acceptable to eat sushi with your fingers as you would with chopsticks), but I can assure you that we only use chopsticks when we eat Japanese food!
Whenever we go out to Japanese restaurants, we hardly ever deviate from ordering sushi. I don't know why that is, but that's how it's always been. Tomo was no exception. We ordered six sushi rolls to satisfy our larger than life appetites. And to go with our sushi rolls--a little bit of Sapporo, a Japanese beer, and Yamazaki, a Japanese whiskey (which tasted just like American whiskey).
My favorite roll of the night (hands down) was the Squid Ink Roll. I know, I know, it sounds a little gross, but the squid ink was just in the sauce, and it brought another dimension to the flavor that you just can't get with just a roll.
We also ate the House, Garlic Yellow Tail, Spicy Tuna, Eel Cucumber, and Negitoro Rolls.
We (more like I) finished off the evening with the Japanese Cheesecake, a much lighter version of its American counterpart. I can confidently say that this is the kind of cheesecake you won't feel guilty eating after eating a slice or two!
Have you ever been to Tomo? And do you have any good camping tips that you'd be willing to share with me?
