House-made fresh tofu with sea salt. Tasting menu Izakaya Yuzuki, San Francisco CA
This was different from any tofu I’ve ever had – I enjoyed it. The texture was super soft and creamy. It had very little flavor so the sea salt was useful. It was also a bit difficult to eat this with the awkward wooden spoons they provided but I like a challenge. 🙂

This was pretty good and there was plenty of it! I liked that they used fried tofu instead of fresh tofu because I prefer the texture. There was also a nice helping of seafood in there. I just wish the dish was a little spicier!
Tower of London, Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress. Home to the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom, this historic castle is a very popular tourist attraction. We didn’t want to wait in line and, instead, opted to be outside to enjoy the much welcomed sun that day. I’m not crazy about the weird lion statues they installed in front of the fortress. They look out of place.
Not much to report today, just work as usual and the gym. I’m glad to be back into a routine with scheduled meals and quailty gym time!

In terms of sushi at an airport, this was ok. Which means it didn’t suck like most airport sushi. I particularly liked the inari – it was sweet and moist. In fact, none of the items were particularly dry, a common theme to most airport sushi.
I’m SO glad to be back home!!! I’ve missed my bed. I’ve missed my dog. I’ve even missed the work office. And I’ve missed Silverfox! We’re going to have dinner tonight at Starbelly. I’m looking forward to eating a wonderfully delicious, California-cooked meal. I have to go into work tomorrow (Friday) and them I’ll have an entire weekend to relax and do nothing. Just sit around and enjoy being home.

Mom’s Tofu House, South San Francisco CA
Went to the gym with my co-instructor this morning. It was nice to get a good workout in before heading out to downtown Charleston for some real food. I’ve decided that I want to hit Magnolias for a late lunch. I went there last time I was in Charleston so I know that the food and service are good. For dinner, I want to hit The Bar at Husk. The restaurant was recommended by a friend, but they had no availability and I don’t really mind eating at the bar especially when I’m dining by myself.
Sizzling bowl of combination soft tofu soup with beef, prawns, clams, mussels, egg, and green onions in spicy broth. $10.99 Jang Su Jang, Santa Clara CA
This spicy tofu soup always hits the spot. I think the shrimp in this soup was the best part! I love sucking the heads with the spicy broth. You can actually choose from white, mild, medium, spicy, and extra spicy broth options. Nice!
They bring out the egg with the banchan.
Then you crack the egg into the soup and stir it in.
Here is the array of banchan that comes complimentary with the meal, noms! My favorite were the spicy bean sprouts, fried tofu, the greens, and the sweet mayonnaise-y fruit were surprisingly good too.
