Hey, thanks for sharing what you know.
Slimjet is really nice for some things; it would be nice if it were good for everything.
I have thought that, since I use a Microsoft Surface Pro, and Microsoft cheerfully insists on helping me learn to use Edge (even though I have StopUpdates10 installed), It may be a Microsoft issue
Should I order sashimi instead?
There is a Japanese restaurant in Rochester, NY run by a Chinese guy who has been in the business for more than 40 years.
He started out at a seriously authentic Chinese restaurant that offered Japanese and Korean dishes as well because of all the Asian students that attended (and still attend, year after year) Rochester Institute of Technology.
His food is awesome. He has been in business for himself for about twenty years, and the purity and cleanliness of the flavors in his food, his scrupulous preparation, the portions in the lacquered bento boxes he offers on his dinner menu, the soups, the tempura, the onigiri, and the sushi, sashimi AND even gimbap are amazing. But I do prefer the gimbap at Seoul House, Rochester’s premiere Korean restaurant.
Sadly, last year, the wife of the couple that first introduced me to Taste of Japan AND to Seoul House (as close friends of the owners both places) died from stomach cancer, and the husband is still struggling to deal with his loss, so I have not been back since and probably will not be going back ever.
Truly amazing food. The majority of people at Taste of Japan are most definitely of various Asian ethnicities with a sprinkling of non-Asian ethnicities, so, having never been to Japan, and not having the air fare under my mattress to do that anytime soon, I assume everything I have eaten is as good or better than what folks chomp down on in Tokyo.
I had had zero sushi or sashimi until being invited to Taste of Japan, and (as a creative) I just got blown away by the colors, the textures, the presentation.
But seriously, the clean sweetness of sashimi was a revelation, and the subtle flavors of the different kinds of seafood knocked me out.
And when I learned about the Sunday afternoon ALL YOU CAN EAT special for 19.99 USD, you better believe I spent a number of Sundays after church trying to stuff myself to the gills (so to speak).
Seoul House is/was a whole OTHER experience for me. Perhaps because my awareness of Korea in the world was “the international conflict” of my generation, Korean food and the more robust style of serving and eating everything has always appealed to me.
Did I hear someone say that I’m just a food addict plain and simple? Well, there’s that, too.
At any rate, Seoul House is a whole other subject. I probably would use up all the Viki bandwidth on that!
