Sitting in the couch still recovering from the grease coma I just put myself in from Breakfast at Chicks, feeling ever so guilty for eating that whole sausage patty, SO walked by with a guilty look on his face and muttered, I forgot
you know it was Friday
Her-UmpH! I responded not needing yet another thing to feel guilt about, Well we are on vacation, so Lenten obligations dont count too late though, I felt guilty
So, I decided my penance would be taking possibly the biggest culinary risk I had this whole trip Going for Sushi Sushi in a state 700 miles from the nearest Ocean if I had truly angered my lord, he would prove it to me that night
Based on the solid recommendation of our Host, we ended up at a trendy spot called Shabu in Park City, otherwise known to me as Los Angeles, Utah. Its located on the second story of a mall type complex on the upper end of Main St. And even though it was off season, the place was absolutely buzzing with beautiful people yup, L.A. alright
Nevertheless, we enjoyed the humm and our server was very nice and so we ordered
Potstickers: First absolutely safe choice. And nothing really special Pass
Tuna Poke: I love this Hawaiian Ceviche and this was the first test of how fresh their fish was and it was excellent being cautious we decided not to order the Sashimi, but after trying this, I kinda felt bad we didnt.
Firecracker Rock Shrimp: Tempura fried and very tasty again, shrimp exceeded my expectations So I began to settle in really nice as the rolls started coming out..
Spider Roll: Even our hosts were a little antsy about the Sushi previously only trying their California Roll this was their first experience with the Spider and it was EXCELLENT. Large size too
Centerpede Roll: As big as the Spider Roll and tasted even better with meaty tempura shrimp inside. Again, we had just ordered these two rolls to play it safe. I was sad we didnt order more.
Pineapple Fried Rice: Came out in the Tinniest most stuffed little bowl Ive ever seen nothing really special about it either. Pass this one too
Sesame Fried Green Beans: I love these type of beans where the Rice was a disappointment, the green beans were a hit!
Vegetable/Seafood Tempura: I loved both of these, the selection of veggies were EXCELLENT. Asparagus, Japanese Squash. The Seafood was just as good in variety, Scallops, Salmon and crab claws! The large portions arent crazy huge, but still a good size to share
Miso Soup: SO ordered this because he loves soup and said, it wasnt anything special. So pass again.
Their selection of Sake and Sake based drinks were also wonderful! We closed dinner with some great after dinner drinks, Hot Toddy, Spiked Green Tea, Ice Wine as well as Tempura Ice Cream (Always a fave!).
We woke up the next morning, our final day in Utah feeling just fine I had survived, no broken bones, pretty good chow and no food poisoning! I guess all those times being nice to puppies and old ladies did count with the big guy And so on our last day in town, we had only one last chow adventure to have and that was the big one for both of us Fry Sauce
