Haha, I am such a weirdo sometimes!!!
Last night we met another couple to try out a new restaurant: Basho Japanese Brasserie over in the Fenway area. We have heard a LOT of great reviews and love their sister restaurant: Douzo. So when friends called for dinner we knew we would have to drag them to Basho.
Overall, it was incredible, probably my new favorite sushi restaurant. The sushi and meal options were not only VERY creative, but also tasty! However, like Douzo, the prices are a bit high! So, it is definitely a splurge, but a good one if you are into unique and creative meals.
The group decided that we would order one item at a time and see how we felt afterwards before ordering the next item. We dined this way for two reasons: to increase the length of our dinning experience and not to over order. I LOVE this way of dining out because of the reasons above and it really helps with intuitive eating!!!!
I started with a spicy crianza and an order of edamame for the table.
Next up Evan and I split a special: Nigiri style Tuna Pastrami
This was the best meal of the night! It was smooth like tuna usually is, but had a faint pastrami-like taste. We got a few rolls next:
fried onion, cucumber, spicy crumb wrapped with tuna, tobiko, salmon,
salmon roe, touch of mango sauce
fried snow crab, lettuce, shiitake, asparagus, pickles with jalapeno
aioli wrapped with cucumber and soy paper
Amaebi Mango Roll
mango, cucumber, grilled pineapple wrapped with sweet shrimp
touch of mango sauce
I am currently cleaning, doing laundry and getting ready for a Pumpkin Festival this evening!! Hope you are having a great Halloween weekend!
Is anyone doing anything fun for Halloween?
