Sushi goodness

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:

yogurt with mango, cranberry sauce, kashi golean and trail mix

leftover stuffed shells

mojo bar

whole grain bagel with cc

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! 😀

    Wow, Innz, nice observation! By the time lunch rolls around I usually forget what I had for breakfast so I definitely dind’t make the connection. I don’t know where my mango was from, but it was super juicy and delicious! You should look out for them in grocery stores and pretend like it IS summer 😀

    […] probably the coolest (and best) maki roll I’ve ever had. Well, I guess I also really love the hawaii maki at Fin’s. We’ll call it a draw. The flavors were so complex! I loved the spiciness of the jalapenos, […]
