And Then I Ate More Sushi

I think I could live on sushi alone. Maybe I should consider since I imagine that if I fed on a diet of rice and fish only, I would live pretty well.

With the closing of Akane, Chef Nogawa now alternates between his Sentosa and town outlet, serving and joking with his regulars. Different location, but the praise for the pristine freshness and variety of fish is still the same. Everything was precisely prepared and then chomped by us.

My favourite moment was when chef Kelvin told me to get ready to stick my hand out and to open my palm.

“Ready?” he asked
“Yes” and then he placed a small mount of rice that was generously topped with plump sea urchin.
“Eat it immediately!” he instructed and in a smooth tequila shot motion, we popped it in our mouths.

Before I met and fell in love with and married my husband, Mr. Sushi, I thought sushi was for THOSE people. Trendy, California types always on the look out for the next 'it' thing and I was an anti-sushi snob. Until Hubby took me on a date to his favorite sushi bar and I bravely took a bite. Now, I have resorted to making some sushi on my own because I just can't got to a restaurant EVERY day and eat it.
I'm getting pretty good at it too. Now I have my sister hooked on making her own too. I don't know what it is specifically that makes it taste so good, but I'm addicted!
