pro tip: sit at the sushi bar and ask the sushi chefs for their recommendations – our guy made us a lot of delicious rolls that weren’t even on the menu! pair your meal with cold sake served from a silver tea cup.

the best thing on miku’s menu

the salmon oshi sushi – pressed bc wild sockeye salmon, jalapeño, and miku sauce that’s flame-seared to perfection.

you really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu since everything is so delicious, but where you can make the biggest mistake of your life is if you don’t order the salmon oshi sushi as part of your meal.

and just in case you were wondering what $300 of salmon oshi sushi looked like…

a picture recipe: oyako-don

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

last night, yukiko came over and taught me how to make a traditional japanese dish, oyako-don.

ingredients: chicken, onions, green onions, hon dashi, soy sauce, cooking sake or cooking rice wine (it’s been confirmed by a legitimate japanese person that both are basically the same thing), eggs, and water.

it was incredibly fast and easy to make, and is best served over rice. follow the pictures above for directions on how to make it.

i was able to come home for lunch today to eat the leftovers. it’s funny how lunch-breaks for me used to be going out to eat every single day with someone… and now, it’s actually a nice change to be able to come home and clean, or do laundry, and just have “me time” to take care of myself and my life. we often get so busy and are constantly surrounded by so many people in this world that we forget just how important it is to get away from it all, in a quiet place, and just have some time alone… even if it’s just for a short period of time each day.

all the money i’ve been saving from not going out to eat all the time is pretty awesome too – we’ll see if i can keep this up once patio season rolls around again.
