Moshi Moshi - More Sushi Please!!!!

When I’m in South Beach with my family, my youngest sister and I have a few special traditions that we always sneak off to do. One such tradition is going for a sushi lunch or dinner – sometimes even both! This last trip down south we hit up Moshi Moshi Sushi on Washington just past Espagnola way in South Beach.



We grabbed a table for two outside and sat down to enjoy the warm South Beach night. There were many options on the menu that we wanted to order and in no time we narrowed down our selection. We ordered the Moshi Moshi roll, the Special California roll with cooked fish on top, the shrimp tempura roll and the spicy tuna roll with tempura flakes. The waitress suggested we start with that and then order more as the rolls were quite large.




On a warm night, nothing is better than a crisp cold beer and that’s exactly what I ordered to go along with my sushi feast. My Sapporo arrived in a tall glass accompanied by our first plate of delicious sushi. The special California ro…

Jaleo

I had been looking forward to my trip to Bethesda, MD., for quite some time. For one my friend lives there, and second I had been dying to try a few restaurants. One such restaurant was Jaleo by Jose Andres. I had heard a lot about the delicious tapas dishes at Jaleo and could not wait for the opportunity to go.


On a warm July evening, my friends and I found ourselves seated watching Fifa soccer on tv at Jaleo in Besthsda Row. We all ordered our drinks and my friends focused their attention on the soccer while I focused mine on the menu. I could not help but want to order almost everything on the menu, but I knew I would have to make compromises. My friend ordered a few certain dishes and then I was left to decide on the rest. After we placed our order, we sat back and sipped our delicious drinks.



If you know me then you know I ordered the gin and tonic, served “Jose Andres” style with fresh juniper berries, lemon zest and a cucumber. It was larger than I could have ever ima…

Crabs, crabs and more crabs at Phillips Crab Deck!

A few weeks ago, I hoped on a plane and went to visit my friend in Bethesda, MD for a long, long weekend. I arrived Friday evening just in time for a quick dinner and few too many drinks. The next afternoon, we headed toward Annapolis, MD., to be tourists. We walked around, shopped and then when dinner time hit, my friends took me to one of their favourite Maryland spots. Having grown up in Baltimore, my friend is a huge lover of crab and Old Bay spices, so naturally she took me for a real Maryland style crab dinner.




Phillips Crab Deck is right on the water in Annapolis, and their huge terrace overlooks the bay. Being the crab pro, I let my friend order us dinner, I just chose the alcohol. She ordered us a dozen crabs, corn on the cob, French fries and lots of Old Bay spices. I started with the oysters, a favourite of mine, served on the half shell on a bed of ice with lemons and delicious cocktail sauce. I shared the oysters with my friends, but they weren’t having any of it,…
