NCISushi and Awfully Chocolate ... sound sketchy?

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

I think the Chinese New Year festivities are over, but give me another day to digest the food and the craziness. It has been an overwhelming 4-5 days that I wish never to repeat again. More about that later (I'm currently working on it ... it's going to be long, and for that, I already apologize.)

Anyway, here are some photos from the past couple of weeks from my eating adventures ...

My friends are in love with this fusion Japanese sushi place cleverly called "NCIS: Northern California-Inspired Sushi," but as it turns out, it's not really my thing. I like my raw fish plain and simple. At least it was cheap!

Some sort of fried sushi with cream cheese in the middle

Fish on top, fish in the middle ... it looked pretty

I think this may have been eel

I ordered a plain spicy tuna roll and was happy with it. My roll cost $3.33.

Afterwards, we went a little crazy at this dessert place called "Awfully Chocolate." Apparently they have shops in a number of countries.

Dark chocolate ice cream ($3.33) ... pretty good

Chocolate cupcake ($4) ... this was okay.

A slice of their specialty, chocolate cake ... this was awful. We went really late in the day and I've heard that it's actually really delicious when fresh, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. It was dry and kind of tasteless when we had it. This was around $4.75.

I ordered this, which they called "cold poached chocolate" ... It was like chocolate mousse compounded into cake form, or pure ganache. I chose the Grand Marnier flavor, and it was so delicious. But so rich that we couldn't finish it. A pity! It was about $5.50.

This is an indication of how I've been eating over the past 2 or 3 weeks. I don't know how I still fit into my jeans, honestly!
