Super spider roll – Sala Thai

Super spider roll - Sala Thai
Soft-shell crab tempura, asparagus, avocado, masago, topped with eel sauce. $12
Sala Thai, Washington DC

I think it’s kinda weird that an “authentic” Thai restaurant offers a large sushi menu, but whatever… Anyway, the roll wasn’t very good. It was dry and pretty bland. The unagi sauce was also a weird consistency.

Mmm, I love the curry at Muracci’s! This chicken curry was really tasty and I love their hot (spicy level) curry option. I just wish there was  a little more chicken, but the price is great regardless. Noms!

Mmm, this little pan was really yummy. I bought it on a whim and I’m glad I did. I liked the texture of the bread and the beef curry was pretty good too. A great little snack before the main dish.

Udon a la carbonara – Izakaya Roku

Udon a la carbonara - Izakaya Roku
Izakaya Roku, San Francisco CA

I liked this fusion. Udon is usually great with anything, and it tasted pretty good in this Italian style. That said, the carbonara wasn’t authentic in any way but it still had a pleasant texture and was nice and creamy/cheesy. It wasn’t the best dish here, but it was a nice change of pace.

Sea urchin in egg – Izakaya Roku

Sea urchin in egg - Izakaya Roku
Uni tamago toji. With scallions and nori. $13
Izakaya Roku, San Francisco CA

This was a new and interesting dish for me. I’d never had uni this way before. It was pretty good, but I kinda wish that the uni was less cooked. I’m still trying to get used to eating sea urchin, but I would rather have a really great raw uni than low quality cooked uni. This uni wasn’t of the best quality, but it was ok and it definitely gross horrible uni. Here’s to trying new food!
