I had to take The Gothmobile to the Nissan dealer to have the airbags replaced (a recall, not an accident). #4 Daughter, the Amazing Sara Marian, met me and took me to lunch.
The place we were going to go turned out to be open for lunch only on Saturday and Sunday, so we went to this other place.
Or, as Sara calls it, Crazy Redhead. 😀
It’s a sushi restaurant. I loathe sushi because seaweed. But Sara said they have other items, so I said, “Let’s go!”
It was worth it, just for the door:
Fusion of the modern and the ancient, door set into the corner of the building, vestibule to lead you gently from the outside to the inside.
If windows count for Thursday Doors, do skylights?
Do screens? Screens are a kind of combination of door and wall. And there IS a door in this picture. Not very picturesque, but a door, nonetheless.
Here’s what I et, minus the miso soup, which came and was
slurped partaken of in a ladylike manner.
Clockwise, from upper right: sticky rice, gyoza (fried dumplings), salad with ginger dressing, fried tofu. Yes, even though there was meat on the menu, instinct told me to go for the tofu. I like good tofu A GREAT BIG LOT, and I was correct: even though Sara’s beef was aMAZing, the tofu (to my taste) was even better!
I actually only ate half the salad, rice, and tofu, because Sara also got this so I could try it–AND I LOVED IT!
That’s called a Tiger Roll. Eee, I just went to the Wild Ginger web site and looked at the ingredients: Smoked salmon | cream cheese | avocado | wrapped in soy paper | eel sauce. I didn’t know about the eel sauce. That dark line around the center is a bit of seaweed, but much less that in a normal sushi roll.
The white blob at the bottom is a rose made of a long peel of ginger. I couldn’t get the exposure right on that picture.
Sara is also In The Know so, even though it wasn’t on the menu, she knew to order plum wine.
I love plum wine SO HARD, and I haven’t had it since I was in college. Mmmmmmm.
