Last Wednesday I had the 8 course omakase dinner at the Standing Sushi Bar
It was awesome food and I can’t wait to go back for more
1st course: organic “garden” snails from Chef Roy’s garden (or so he claimed) [Okay I found out that these are called baigai]
Time to make sweet & sour pork with curry salmon rice!
Lunch sushi set at the Standing Sushi Bar
Maguro, ika, sake, hotate
Aji, mekakiji, unagi, kappa maki
Pork shoulder slow cooked in a green chile sauce.
Sorry! This is just the preparation picture, I got lazy. This is tuna ‘cooked’ by marinating it with lemon & lime juice for several hours, the texture is amazing. I eat it with warm tortillas.
This is the hokkai kaisen don I had from the Standing Sushi Bar (@standingsushi)
Chock-full of variety; there’s tamago, amaebi, tako, sake, hamachi, ebi, hotate, ikura and kani.
Toasted nori sheets
Combine for yum yum
Tonight, I’ll be making tagliatelle with fried tiger prawns and dressed with a tomato & basil sauce.
