I am a sushi snob

I am what I am. But, just to clear up I am a sushi-snob, but not because of some social elitest perception I have of myself, but because I didn't grow up eating seafood. Therefore, I have a very sensitive pallette to seafood. I don't like anything even remotely close to a "fishy" taste. So if it's not fresh sushi, I can tell immediately. I went to Kata Robata Sushi & Grill with OG yesterday and the atmosphere is nice and warm, lots of textures, traditional meets new, lots of bamboo, warm lighting, new and updated. Our waiter seemed a bit new, nervous a little. I didn't like how they put my sushi on my dinning mate's plate, I didn't get a chance to eat it. We ordered edamame, salad with miso dressing, Tropical Salmon roll and the Oceanic Picante something roll (had salmon, tuna, tempura asparagus). They were both just okay, nothing to write home about. Actually, they both just tasted watered down, that's the best way I can describe it. A friend had recommended Kata Robata, said the food was so good. Some people just aren't very picky. I still stand by my Aka Sushi, still my favorite sushi spot.

Stopped by Tasting Room Uptown, had the bread pudding, very good. I find when you order bread pudding, you get everything under the sun. Some like a loaf of cinnamin type loaf to that which is offered at Ruggles, but the bread pudding at TR was different. Very tasty, didn't go very good with wine, but I guess you can't have it all. The circle of girls sitting next to me were eating the Margherita pizza, smelled soooo good. I'll have to try that next time.

damn I need some chocolate

So my car gets broken into last night while I was at the gym...I work out at the Fit on Waugh and West Gray. Apparently they have a lot of break ins and they have security supposedly driving around. I just happen to switch purses and left it in the car that early afternoon, so at the time my car got broken into, I had two purses in the car. They got away with my cash, $40 or so, all my credit cards, and I had a lot, and withdrew $500 from my debit account and spent $300 at Fiesta. They also tried to use my Target card at Target, which I think is funny. They apparently thought you have to use a Target credit card at Target. Tried to charge $300, then $200, but they didn't know that card is maxed out...ahahahaha...fools. The staff at the Fit, pulled out the cleaning supplies, cleaned, vaccumed, and trash bagged and taped up my car since it was raining...they're so awesome.

I had lunch with one of my clients, Lauren, to discuss some stuff and she said she felt like God had brought me to them because he wants his little girl back, this is where I started to cry, at Tiny Boxwood's, I looked up at her and she was welling up too. I told her she was weird. ;)

I get back to the office, a specific builder that sounds like short version of three convicts, doesn't want to pay my bonus, losers and I can't basicially do anything about it.

damn I'm having a bad day...I need chocolate!

Cappuccinos & Brownie at Barnaby’s

So lately I've been really into cappuccinos, had two at Barnaby's in company of Jennifer and Janice and surprisingly Barnaby's West Gray has a nice, strong cappuccino, I just learned how to spell "cappuccino". Two caps and still able to go to sleep easily at night. I wonder why some are affected and some aren't by caffeine and I'm no regular coffee drinker. Btw, Jennifer is a perv, she said our drinks look like boobies. Cute aren't they? We actually ended up at Barnaby's craving a brownie, got a brownie a la mode and it was ok, I've had it before. The ice cream and brownie, not the greatest of pairings, the ice cream, as jennifer noted, tastes like flowers, eat the brownie wo and it's much better. Still on the lookout for a good brownie spot...another btw, I just went to the Barnaby's next to Baby Barnaby's on Fairview for the first time, all this time I thought it was all the same thing, but no, Barnaby's next to Baby Barnaby's on Fairview is the original, I like, very hole in the wall feel, wait staff at this particular location are fsuper duper friendly.
