I just wanted to thank all of you who wished me well on my move to Boston. In the world of food blogging, it’s really quite rare that people will actually read what you write, so I’m thankful to those that take the time to read my blurbs. While many of you might be a bunch of internet strangers, I appreciate the generosity & support you’ve shown me as my blog & academic career continue to move forward. Here are a bunch of pictures of food I ate &/or made that I forgot to put up. For more posts on pictures of food I ate, explore my Foodie Fridays category.
Huckleberry’s Pastrami Sandwich.
Well, this is embarrassing! My last post said this upcoming post would center around my trip to the Bahamas with Josh & my family, but I can’t upload the video onto my Vimeo account because I reached my quota this week, so I’ll just have to wait until Saturday for it to refresh. Regardless, the next post will absolutely be an explosion of pictures from the Bahamas that your eyes will be beached out for the day. Hopefully you enjoy this picture food dump post. If it makes you hungry, mission accomplished.
Remember how I dabble in gardening & making terrariums? No? Well, I do, so I made an instructional video on how to make beach themed terrariums except filming with one hand & trying to plant with the other produced deplorable results. What do you do with a bunch of movie clips on how to make terrariums that are poorly focused, unstable, & nearly nauseating to watch due to the amount of instability? Why, you throw them into Lightroom, edit the heck out of the colors, slap on some downtempo song, & boom, you’ve got yourself something semi-watchable.

Kitayama’s Amberjack Nigiri
Phew! After intensively studying for the MCAT for the past few months, it’s finally over & I can finally move onwards with my life. I felt as though studying for this dreaded standardized test was equivalent to pausing everything I really wanted to do & not so much a step closer to getting to where I need to be for my career. It’s not as though I’ve lost interest or passion in a career in the health field – the MCAT has just been a pesky splinter in-between my toes. I put nearly everything else on pause while I focused all my brain power into pushing through the pain & plucking out that minuscule fragment causing my misfortune.
To numb the pain a bit with ice, Josh & I had dinner at Kitayama, a beautiful Japanese restaurant with a crew of friendly staff including gorgeous servers–hollah at my girl Vy–, nice hosts, & entertaining sushi chefs. We ordered the omakase, which grants the chefs liberty to be creative with the fish they had. It’s always a wonderful experience to see what new mouthwatering dishes sushi chefs come up with right in front of you. Having been able to consume such wonderful meals in the past few weeks, I decided to compile a post of mouthwatering Asian dishes from various countries–realistically, I just posted three, but whatever just go with it.

Sango Sushi’s Caterpillar Roll.
After a long day of studying, I figured I really couldn’t focus anymore until I fulfilled my sushi craving so I ordered take-out & watched Star Trek: Into the Darkness. Sushi + Star Trek = Best Day of the Week. As Donna Meagle & Tom Haverford will tell you, sometimes when you’ve had a rough week, you just have to Treat. Yo. Self!

Sanriku Kaisendon: The Best Chirashi of my Life
Donald & I went to Sushi Koto yesterday to fulfill his sushi craving. I had read about how it has some of the best Chirashi bowls to offer in Orange County. Hands down, absolutely not disappointed. Everything in that bowl was fresh, high quality, & delicious. It was also very filling, especially since it came with salad, miso soup, & dessert. The Chirashi bowl consisted of: steamed abalone, salmon, tuna, big scallop, yellowtail, squid, masago, ikura, & avocado all over a bed of rice. Talk about a day in the life of a fatty. In my defense, it was the best Chirashi I’ve ever had & any type of “Best I’ve Ever Had” experience is well worth it!
