As I write this I am fighting off the pre-vomit watery mouth like there’s no tomorrow. Not fun, but even more so surprising since last night’s dinner was delicious and tasted fabulous! And to be fair, I’m not sure if this is a result of the sushi, the ice cream, the combination of the two, or some other weird thing altogether. PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM DEFINITELY NOT PREGNANT, so don’t freak out my husband by asking that in the comments 🙂
Hapa Sushi was the first place I ever tried sushi and is just about the only place I really get excited about eating it at. It’s dark, funky, and always a lot of fun. Plus almost every roll has a name with sexual innuendo…you have to love a place where your inner teenage boy can rejoice!
Poor, lost souls…WHY oh WHY would you eat seaweed salad?!
And then I tried it. I love the rich flavor from the sesame oil and the texture is just so fun! Crunchy, slimy, and otherwise perfect. Even in my nauseous state this morning I’m drooling just thinking about it. It’s that good.
Next up: spicy edamame. Y’all, you will DIE and go to foodie heaven if you try this stuff! It’s lightly steamed and served in a bath of soy sauce, garlic, red chili, ginger, sesame seeds & oil, and scallions. And probably some other stuff that I don’t even know about. My father-in-law is a veggie-hater through and through and refuses to eat anything green except iceburg lettuce and the spicy edamame at Hapa. That’s saying a lot!
From left to right there’s the shrimp tempura roll, seared ahi, tuna, yellowtail, the Mork and Mindy roll (white tuna, salmon, chives, mandarin orange), the LA roll (lobster, cucumber, avocado), and the spicy tuna roll.
So good, but I could only eat a few pieces after the massive quantities of seaweed and edamame already residing in my belly. The Mork and Mindy was a new one we had never tried, and I loved the sweet addition of mandarin oranges!
No really, that’s why.
Get your minds out of the gutter! I’m talking about a sushi roll 🙂
This is the richest sushi roll you’ll ever eat. You will most definitely have an eye-rolling moaning experience. And you will definitely want to share it with others. This bad boy has cream cheese, crab mix, smoked salmon, is fried, and then covered with a cream sauce that will surely change your life. Healthy it is not, but who cares? You’re eating sushi in Boulder for crying out loud…live a litte! 🙂
My life has been forever changed by this small bowl of creamy, caramely, whiskey-y goodness. Nate, I love you but…I’m not sharing this. Sorry.
I loved this photo…something about old photographs makes me stop and make up a story for what was going on. Doesn’t this group of friends that opened the Boulder Ben & Jerry’s look fun? Hey, I’d be pretty darn excited if I was opening up an uber-successful ice cream shop. Just sayin’!
We had a seriously fun night, and are excited to go watch my sister-in-law play volleyball this evening. She plays for OU (Oklahoma – not Ohio) and is starting conference play by playing CU! Thank goodness the Big 12 is sticking around for a little bit longer.
Happy Wednesday y’all!
