I had such a fun night last night! Sushi+drinks+fun friend = happy Elina! My friend Katie and I went to Fin’s in Kenmore Square in Boston. I went to Fin’s a few months ago and after reading my post about it, Katie really wanted to check it out. I love sushi but don’t have it nearly as often as I’d like, so of course we made a sushi date. Fin’s is BYOB so we stopped by the Wine Gallery first and picked up a bottle of Pinot Grigio to share Here is my first glass (I had about 1/2 bottle):
After chatting for a bit, we finally ordered some food. I feel like I haven’t had a salad in forever so I started with a Field Green salad (no onions or scallions)… I think it was just mixed greens, tomatoes, red and green peppers and carrots. It was much bigger than I was expected and I ate almost every bite. The dressing on it was perfectly light and the veggies were nice and fresh. I love salads!
Then came the sushi. I wanted to try something fun + a few basics, so I went with the Hawaii Maki (spicy tuna, avocado, mango wrapped in rice paper) + 2 salmon nigiri and 2 unagi nigiri. Here is my plate:
It was SO good! I’ve never seen maki wrapped in rice paper instead of seaweed. Pretty cool! The spicy tuna was spicier than I expected (but I love spicy!) so I was chugging water like it was going out of style 😉 The nigiri was especially fresh (like melt-in-your-mouth fresh!). Seriously I could eat sushi everyday! Perfect food day for Elina: yogurt parfait for breakfast, salad from b.good for lunch and sushi for dinner. Oh yeah, don’t forget lots of chocolate and baked goods in between! 😆
I also tried one of Katie’s spicy scallop rolls. She said they are her favorite but these weren’t the best. They were a little overcooked, I think… slightly tougher than you’d want them. Still yummy though
I was absolutely stuffed by the time we were done with dinner! We chatted for almost 2.5 hours!! So much fun!
OTHER EATS OF THE DAY:
Multiply this half by 3! I just couldn’t get enough. It was warm, fresh and delicious (and free). Damn free food. 😳
I’m actually posting this from work, so I better go do what I’m actually getting paid for! 😀
