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 roll topped with baked fish and a delicious sweet glaze - out of this world delicious! The fresh lightly baked fish was so delicious and delicate, it really added a special "Je ne sais quoi" to the dish. I have had sushi rolls with raw sashimi on the outside, but never baked fish. It was a very different and quite a delicious twist. I highly recommend trying this roll.

As we finished our first dish, the next plate of sushi appeared. Spicy tuna with tempura flakes was a simple roll but the flavour was anything but. The red tuna, the spice of the sauce and the crunchy tempura meddled together to form one damn good piece of sushi. I especially liked how they spread a tiny bit of spicy mayo on each piece of the roll – love that!

The Moshi Moshi roll had the perfect blend of tunas, white and red, and salmon. The crunchiness of the tempura flakes, the zing of the spicy mayo and the creaminess of the avocado complimented the fresh fish so well and created a delicious and addicting sushi roll. I really loved this roll and so did my little sis. We ate it up quite quickly, and had I not been so full after finishing the rest of the sushi, I would have gladly ordered another of this roll.

The Ebi tempura roll was good too, nothing out of the ordinary, but still very good. I always find when eating sushi abroad, I mean outside of Montreal, the rolls and style of serving sushi is always different. There is always one roll I can count on, the shrimp tempura, and Moshi Moshi’s did not disappoint.

My sister and I finished up the last few bites of sushi; I could not believe how full we were with only four rolls. I thanked the waitress for stopping us there, she said that people always over order and that she would rather we under order than order too much to finish. I really appreciated that and thanked her again. We sat drinking our drinks and people watching for a while; south beach really has the best people watching and of course really amazing food too!

Le Santal, the very best of St. Martin

Vacation time is always the best time.  Planning every part of your trip and then finally getting to experience everything you hoped for.  This year, my girlfriends and I planned a last minute spontaneous trip to St. Martin with a stop in Anguilla.  I of course was excited for all the food.  The research started once my flight was booked, and did not stop until I felt we had more than enough options.  I can get obsessive, so I had to really narrow down my list.  At the top of my list were a few, but one kept reappearing, Le Santal.  

Sitting on the beautiful beach of Sandy Ground St. Martin, Le Santal blew my expectations like no other restaurant has ever done before.  We pulled up to the restaurant where the valet and hostess were waiting for us.  Our car was taken to the parking lot and we were escorted to our table.  Our table was overlooking the water, so beautiful so calming, we really enjoyed the view.  
The restaurant is gorgeous.  Elegantly decorated in whites and blues, it real…

Grumman 78 - A Taco heaven?

Scrolling through my pictures this weekend, I noticed ones from my lunch at Grumman 78 and immediately realized that I had never written a review on them - shame on me!  Better late than never right?  So here it is, a year late ...

My visit to Grumman was so long ago, in fact it was at their Faubourg location that closed a while back.  Two friends and I headed over the Grumman for what we heard were the best tacos in town.  Arriving at their order counter, I quickly ordered two tacos (pork stick and the lamb curry taco), papas Grumman and a tomato and corn bread salad.  

The first Taco I had was their "Pork Stick" topped with a delicious potato and egg salad.  When ordering this taco I thought I would be transported into a different taste dimension, maybe I was expecting too much.  It was good, but nowhere near as good as everyone made it seem.   I found it to be a bit lacking in flavour, I barely tasted anything expect the salad topping.  I enjoyed it but wasn't as impres…

Spiga; Italian cuisine on a French Island

Spiga Grand Case, St. Martin

Since travelling to Italy, I have become such a snob when it comes to eating Italian food.  I don't enjoy pizza as much, except for a couple of places, pasta dishes seem bland and tasteless, and don't get me started on the meats.  I just don't get it.  Italian food used to be my favourite, but now, I just keep dreaming of the day I can go back and eat till  explode, literally!  I am saved sometimes as my co-worker is a from Italy and happens to be a killer cook.  She satisfies my gnocchi craving when I need it the most.  So when I came across Spiga on my restaurant quest of St. Martin, I was cautious, but hopeful.  
We parked like typical locals, squished on some lawn on the side of the road, and walked in to the very cute restaurant.  It was quite busy, one table in particular was overly rowdy and obnoxious, nevertheless we were seated very quickly, a very big plus in my books.  We sat down, ordered drinks and waited hungrily to order our mains. …
