London foodie finds: Sushi in the neighbourhood

Happy Sunday!

Hope you’ve had a nice weekend and that you’re gearing up for a fab week. Remember, a Sunday well spent brings a week of content!

In my case, I decided to try a sushi place in my neighbourhood — Feng Sushi, which I later found out is a chain in London. I usually go for little independently owned family sushi restaurants (especially being from the states where sushi bars tend to be on every corner in major cities), but I was pleasantly surprised with Feng. I mean look at that sushi spread 🙂

From prawn tempura to spicy salmon rolls, we were in for a delicious treat. If that doesn’t end the weekend on the high note I don’t know what does 🙂

In my eyes the crazier roll the better, whether that includes fruit, pine nuts or crazy fish combinations. Are you a sashimi, nigiri or maki roll fan?

DC Dining: Raku

Happy Sunday Funday, everyone!

It’s been a little while since I updated my blog, buttttt I’m back and ready to write! My first post back revolves around one of my favorite things – city dining. I am truly a foodie at heart. This week I  ventured out of D.C. and over to a restaurant called Raku in the city’s neighboring little sister – Bethesda, Md.

The self-proclaimed Asian, Sushi & Sake joint is to die for. Here’s what I snagged during my friend’s birthday dinner (clearly margs are a must during birthday festivities!) –

Sushi lovers in the DMV, you’re definitely going to want to check this place out.

Fresh seafood, delicious cocktails and a great ambiance – what’s not to love?
