Went to this awesome Japanese restaurant which had a BYOB policy. Before we headed there, we went to a convenience store and stocked up on some beers (Magic Hat summer ale and Hoegaarden) and went to go eat!

We ordered the Tempura Platter which had eggplants, broccoli, potatoes, and sweet potatoes. It had a special soy sauce based dipping sauce which was kind of flavorless and a little bit too watery for my taste. I made my own soy sauce wasabi concoction to better compliment the dish.

The rolls we ordered, which were the california rolls and the cucumber eel rolls were nothing to complain about. Came on a very nice dish and tasted very fresh.

The highlight of the meal was definitely the outdoor setting in which we ate. It resembled a cozy backyard which felt very homey and intimate. The BYOB policy was definitely a huge plus to the overall factor of the experience. Hoppy beers go really well with sushi. Try it next time!

P.S. The color of the Magic Hat Summer Ale is gorgeous.

I had this interesting dish of abalone for dinner the other day. If you don’t know what abalone is, it is a sea snail and is considered a Chinese delicacy in East Asia and other countries such as France and Latin America. This abalone was captured by my uncle who is licensed to catch these things in California.

The texture is a bit tough…like chewing on rubber; which is something I’m not used to. I’m still not a fan of oysters, clams, and the like. However, the abalone meat was very flavorful. You can stir-fry it with soy sauce, scallions, and other basic ingredients.


John and I had our first dim sum experience together yesterday morning at jing fong restaurant, located on 20 Elizabeth Street in Chinatown, New York. The escalator ride transported us to a huge banquet hall, also known as dim sum heaven. This was the first time that I went without my family and unfortunately I do not speak a word of Chinese (being the typical american born Chinese I am), so John and I ended up pointing to the carts of dim sum and ordered whatever that looked good to us. Yes, the service may not be up to par but we didn’t care. John got up from his seat and chased after some of the carts. We were still satisfied and full towards the end of our meal.

We ended up with 6 small dishes of: short ribs, vegetable dumplings (there is one missing in the photo because John was impatient), shrimp wrapped in soft noodle sheets and soy sauce, pork buns, shrimp dumplings, and egg tarts (not pictured above). Each dish was as authentic as it could get and very delicious! There are lots more dishes to try out but unfortunately our tummies was packed with capacity. If you are ever in the area and are feening for dim sum, I suggest you check it out. 🙂
