Fire Me Up!

The Husband and I indulged in a great Japanese meal recently at our favourite albeit expensive Japanese restaurant. Sun with Moon Japanese Dining is like a spa for our mouths and tummies. The food is every bit as good as it looks. Art on a plate, some might say. They serve an array of yummy dishes from salads to noodle and rice items. The salmon avocado salad we had was really good. The fish was half broiled and the dressing had a hint of wasabi in it. But they also have a good selection of sushi with half broiled toppings. This means fresh fish slices that are lightly browned with a blow torch.

Our must-have: Aburi Foie Gras Sushi - Half broiled goose liver sushi. I can't even begin describing the joy of how it tastes. It is one hell of a party in the mouth. I remember the first time we had it, we were blown away. The sashimi is also the best we've tasted so far; it is fresh and served at a nice cool temperature. Point of information: I only eat salmon sashimi because it generally has no smell and the texture is slightly springy, unless its old. I just don't like the taste of any other fish. A big thank you to The Husband who generously let me have all the salmon in the sashimi platter, as well as the extra piece of foie gras sushi. ***
