And how much did that little swim with the sushi set you back?

Scooter said...

In the $150 range, including tip and evil 10% Chicago tax - but for four people including a 2 year old. And we stayed in a crappy Motel 6 which freed up quite a bit of cash.

Actually, for four people, that's not bad at all...

I am sure the Moonies appreciated the support.

Quit saying things like that - I have a trip to Chicago coming up and I'm going to plug my ears and sing while I eat sushi just so I can't hear the chanting.

Believe me, I don't need a list to bring back fond memories of the sushi forays in Chicago.

Thankfully, my memory of the worst food item I have ever consumed to date (Uni), is effectively washed away by the exceptional memories of smoked duck sushi, the $8 cut of fatty tuna at Kamehachi, and the two very different, but equally delicious, oyster shooters consumed on that trip.

That's just the sushi highlights - all the sushi was great & makes me wish I lived closer to Chicago. Actually, it makes me want to plan a road trip :)

She says said...

Ummm, that does sound good.

Ever had scallops? Love 'em. Hamachi, unagi, toro... Yum.

Years ago when I visited the aquarium in Osaka, I overheard a Japanese tourist who was looking at the giant crabs say "Oishii." -- which means "oh, that looks tasty!" And I thought to myself, would any American look at a cow and say "Yum!"?

Food for thought.

She says said...

Check this out.

That's too much for me, I have to admit.

Kyle said...

I've had/cut fish that fresh (please note, I did dispatch the fish before cutting), but on those occasions I dredged the resulting fish filets in seasoned flour & plunged them into hot oil - with delicious results I might add...

I would have tried scallops on the trip (they were on the menus), but I couldn't quite picture what they would be like. In retrospect they would've had to have been a better choice than the Uni ;)

She says said...

Uni. Ick.

Definitely do scallops next time.
