Sushi @ Wokcanos
But earlier this week, our friend Luther wanted us to meet him and his friend Quentin at Wokcano's in Downtown Long Beach for happy hour. Because I had finally been presented with the opportunity to get some sushi without eating it all by myself, drowning it in a puddle of my lonely tears, I was so game. So I drove down to Adam's office once he was done working, and we parked there and walked the half mile to the restaurant (since parking in downtown can be as difficult as me trying to fit into my jeans from high school). Downtown is beautiful though, so it was a lovely little stroll. No matter how long I live here, I never get tired of seeing palm trees. Although there was a weird moment when a homeless man got mad at us for not crossing the street in front of a moving, metro car. Not even kidding. We thoroughly thanked him for the advice, and we told him we would take it into consideration. Not really. No, we just kept looking forward with puzzled looks on our faces, and avoided him the rest of the walk.
At Wokcanos, we indulged in cocktails like the Wokcano pear martini (yum), and ordered all sorts of food including crab wontons and sushi. We had the California roll, spicy yellow tail tempera roll, spicy tuna roll, and shrimp tempera roll. My favorite was the spicy yellow tail tempera roll. I don't think I ever tasted a sushi roll that delicious. It knocked my socks off. I could eat that roll for every meal for the rest of my life and not tire of it. No doubt about it.
Most importantly, I got my sushi fix. However, I am already craving it again. I am a true sushi addict!
P.S.-I edited the picture using the program polodroid, which makes all your photos look like polaroids. Plus it is really fun to use because you can actually watch your photos develop like polaroids. So cool.
