Yes, I know .. my life these days seems to revolve around food :O – shocked expressions accepted. I literally eat 24/7 – the only thing I keep leaving behind is my last bag of banana and plantain chips. The reality that I may never see another any time soon is too much to bear.
*Anyhoo* *Flashback to Thursday Night*
(can you believe that was almost a week ago! It’s been crazy here .. )
Gone With the Wind showed tonight at the Lucas Theatre on 32 Abercorn Street. It’s a romantic comedy for want of a better description shot in the 1930’s Though I thought it would be fantastic to see it in such a setting, it just wasn’t meant to be. Instead I enjoyed a wonderful night out with two friends from Trinidad or fellow ‘islanders’. Long story short (’cause there was a bit of drama leading up to this that I shant get into), we chose to dine at Heiwa’s, a very cool Japanese restaurant and sushi bar with a quirky but friendly compliment of staff.
After much deliberation, we decided to try out a few of the most intriguing items and mused at the warning; consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood,
or eggs may increase your risk of food borne illness, [DUH!] that lined the bottom of each menu page. P.S. I will like you more if you don’t ask me to tell you *which was which*
Tootsie – Shrimp & cream cheese coated in tempura crunch & drizzled with sweet eel sauce
Mermaid – Crab mix, cream cheese & shrimp tempura, topped with salmon, avocado, tempura, crunch & sauces.
Spider – Fried soft shell crab, cucumber, masago, and mayonnaise
Crunch Roll – Spicy Tuna, Eel, Asparagus and Avocado
Content with our meal, we ventured to the adjacent attraction – Ellis Square. There wasn’t much activity save for some music being played and a gentleman trying to get the trickle of people there to dance along. We obliged for a few seconds before calling the taxi and heading back to the dorms.
Otherwise, it’s pretty interesting to not that I’m immediately picked up as being ‘Caribbean’ after uttering one word yet back home I’m told that I don’t sound Jamaican or remotely local. Hmmmnnnnnnn
Ok back to reading 😛 SEE YAH!
