t says: g and I, having had multiple great experiences at Little Fish, especially for their Sunday fixed price menus, decided it was time to crack the whip and demand that a and v and kp accompany us on our next visit. kp couldn’t make it, but that didn’t stop the four of us from seeing the task to its end … for the sake of the blog! …
May 2013, Sunday Dinner, Party of 4.
t says: I’m not a huge fan of the PLCB – the selection is very often limited and the people who work in the stores are of no help. That said, even the blind squirrel finds an acorn … or five … While these are some of the pricier wines that the PLCB offers at its 19th and Chestnut store, I have to say that I was impressed to see them there. It’s not that I’ve had any of them (as a matter of fact, I’ve had none of them), but it’s the first time in a while that I’ve actually been excited to see something in a state store! No, I didn’t buy any of them (I’m not made of money!), but I’m hoping that in seeing these, it’s a sign that some more-better wines are in the pipeline …
t says: A little while ago, I hopped on a groupon for the new sushi eatery: Crazy Sushi. I figured for $20, I could get $40 worth of food, which isn’t that bad of a deal. g and I went on a Monday night and let’s just say that the sushi was a bit crazy, indeed:
I also ventured the yellow-tail scallion roll, which was a bit below average – it was a very petite size and the scallion had an unusual resiliency to it – must not have been fresh. I also tried the banana tempura roll which was also rather unremarkable (?where’d the crunch go?).
In summary, I think that Crazy Sushi was a ok groupon deal – you can get some raw fish at a reasonable price. But without it, I’d much rather go down the street and over one block to Tsuki. No, Tsuki’s not as “crazy”, but at least I can feel the fish. But, if you’re going with those who are still in the beginning stages of sushi and might be “in” to over-the-top dish ornaments (serious! what’s the deal with that row of twigs near my sashimi?), this place might be fore you. As for me … I was just happy it was BYO! (yea, that Novellum in the background is pretty much the best $10 chardonnay I’ve ever had – think Chardonnay, but without the obnoxious oak and add on a nice touch of zip.)
t says: Since our head-to-head of some popular Greek yogurts, I’ve been plugging along, doing the Fage thing (on the days that breakfast can be had), adding granola or honey or whatever else my little heart desired, watching as the Chobani tide at work slowly receded. Now, some two years later, I guess Greek Yogurt just isn’t as “cool” anymore. It was an interesting fad while it lasted. And throughout, Fage remained, in my opinion, the king of yogurt (or queen – I’m unsure of the gender of Greek yogurt). But now, upon rolling up into Wegmans, I spotted two other shnazzy-shining-armored knights invading the refrigerated section, ready to contest the throne:
