Lunch :: Hanami Sushi








You may or may not know that in June 2010 I stopped eating all meat except for fish. I decided that my resolution for 2011 would be to quit fish also. However, as soon as 2012 rolled around, I gave in and was back on the wagon. I make other exceptions for my vegetarianism as well, such as gummy worms, marshmallows and french fries... I like to make my own rules in life and not be stuck inside labels. Love me or hate me, it's how I do. But that's another story.

My most recent encounter with those slimy-yet-satisfying creatures was at Hanami Sushi, a local eatery tucked away at the back of a strip mall. (I've said it before and I'll say it again -- the seemingly shadiest of places are always best.) I went with friends Aimee (not to be confused with her doppelganger, Taylor Swift) and Chris (not to be confused with my roommate, Cris).

Our menu for the night consisted of caterpillar, crunchy, and baked salmon rolls. Edamame was also a must. Divine!

  1. I must say the only place I know of where french fries are not vegetarian is McDonalds and I never fancied their fries anyway. As for the rest, I guess I've just dealt without. I've been tossing around the idea of adding fish back but I feel like I miss chicken more, and so it's best for me to just avoid them both...

  3. Chips (fries) are almost always veggie, at least in the UK! I am also a pescatarian (stupid word) who eats gelatine. I think it's wrong from an ethical pouint of view but I LOVE fish!

  4. Mr. A has been bugging me to take him to a sushi place for the longest time now, but I keep saying no because sushi freaks me out. Plus, we live in St. Louis -- Do we really have anywhere that is known of sushi? Not really. I wish we had a bigger selection.

  5. Good for you for stickin' with your veggies, but sushi is admittedly hard to pass up.

  6. That's so cool that you're vegetarian! As for sushi, I recently started eating sushi in the last year and cannot keep myself from stopping. I never liked fish, so it's kind of amazing that I like it so much. Those pictures make me crave going out for some sushi tonight :)

  7. haha, I tried being vegan for a bit, but it did not last very long because of my undeniable love for sushi! I've been vegetarian ever since ... I eat fish. I just may grab some sushi today! :-)

  9. My favorite is the sweet potato roll. So delicious! It's probably a good thing that I never had sushi before I became a vegetarian in 2008 because it would have been much more difficult to give up seafood!

    I allow myself gummy vitamins since I'm not particularly skilled at swallowing pills, but that's my only exception. Of course, a good s'more is always tough to turn down.

  11. I love fish, but I've honestly never had sushi! I don't know, I just always thought I wouldn't like the consistency? Someday I'll get brave enough to try it!

    I've also never had mayonnaise. Just because I felt like sharing another random bit about me. ;)
