So Very Nice Out Here

Very nice out here, but it isn’t Boston…

I think the drivers out here are actually worse than in Boston, I know people say Boston is the worst, but LA area has them beat as far as I am concerned, especially when dealing with 6 lanes of traffic!

Now what would a blog spot from me be without a reference to a meal I ate somewhere right?

Well I had dinner tonight in the Hotel Sushi Bar, and it was fabulous! SO much better than the sushi around the Boston Area.

I had….

California Roll(fitting don’t you think?) which was crabmeat and avocado with sticky rice in a seaweed wrap

Maguro which is raw tuna on sticky rice with a spot of wasabi

Hamachi which is raw yellowtail on sticky rice with a spot of wasabi

Sake which is raw salmon on sticky rice with a spot of wasabi

Ebi which is cooked shrimp on sticky rice with a spot of wasabi

Hotate which is scallops in a spicy sauce, baked briefly and then put on top of sticky rice with a seaweed wrap

Albacore Tataki which is albacore tuna, lightly pan seared but raw on the inside on top of cucumber strips, with a sesame dressing

All as very tasty and filling while not being too much food either. I really liked the albacore, it melted in your mouth and was practically falling apart when picking it up with the chop stix, the tuna and yellowtail were great as well, and salmon was so so, just confirmed that I am not a huge fan of Salmon in general.

I am gonna head back there tomorrow to try out some other things, Uni(sea urchin) and Tako(octopus) looked very tasty so they may be on the menu for tomorrow night.

    When I lived in L.A. I always said I’d rather be on the SE Expressway (pre-big dig), in afternoon rush hour, in a blizzard, in a ratty old car with a standard transmission than have to deal with California drivers.

    The freeway on-ramps have stop lights on them.  What?  Did no one ever teach these people how to merge?!?!

    It’s RAIN, people.  Okay, it’s not even rain – it’s a light mist, not one of the signs of the apocalypse!!!  Get a friggin grip and focus on the road!!!

    No where else can you drive the 405 at 3am and have TRAFFIC.  Insane.

    I worked 12 miles from where I lived and there were days it took me 90 mins to 2 hours to get to work.  In comparison, I now live 20 miles from where I work and it takes me roughly 25 mins WITH a stop at Dunkin Donuts.

    Oh – and don’t even get me started on the lack of Dunkin Donuts out there.  Who can survive the California freeways without Dunkin Donuts?!?!

    Enjoy your sushi – I would just pass on the blowfish.  😛
