The Mouse’s dinner. Local Boy Sushi. Primarily catering with a small take-out window.

Big Bruddah Bowl

Not that big, shallow bowl, not quite enough rice. Ahi poke (decent), spicy tuna (decent), kalua pork (good), smoked pork (winner), unagi (weakest link), shrimp tempura (passable).

And, no stop at Local Boy Sushi without Mr. Lee’s hamburger (deluxe).

Super old school. ūüėČ

The Cat went to visit her elderly relatives (before they become ancestors, if you catch my drift). Last dinner at SPAMland.

One of the reasons the place was picked was because The Cat likes the bathroom, alas, the woman’s restroom just had a regular WC (must’ve broke and been replaced).

Luckily, the man’s side still had the technology.

As a bonus, there were young Szechuan peppers in the rice.

Eel, Not Eww

While The Cat was away (see previous post), The Mouse went to play.

A new restaurant recently opened that specializes in unagi.

Claim to Fame

The restaurant is so new, it hasn’t had its grand opening yet. Tried it last week. Ordered the unadon, a bowl of rice with a piece of unagi¬†and sauce.

Unadon

I already sprinkled sansho (provided on the table) on my unagi before I took the picture, my bad. Also ordered umaki, egg roll with unagi.

Umaki

I learned to eat unagi a long time ago. This version is pretty close to the first time I tried it. Just enough sauce, broiled so that the edges are a bit crispy, but not too crisp. The unagi and egg, a good combination. Yes, the socks came off.

Definitely want to come back. Have to save some money though.  Currently, the restaurant uses unagi sourced from Taiwan, once they receive unagi sourced from Japan, the price may double. Sigh

Enjoy.
