I had my first acupuncture treatment this morning. So far I am very impressed with Nicholas Steadman, but I’ll probably write a more thorough review after I’ve gotten it again (I signed up for another session on Thursday night). I think I am very lucky to have found this.
Here is some food! Bobby and I have been to this Japanese place called East 3 times now. We have definitely learned what to get. The menus have pictures for every dish:
I like to get tea (complimentary) with my meals.
The first time we went I got this grilled broccoli. Kind of a ripoff ($2.50 I think), but very good.
Bobby got this burdock noodle soup with tempura and fish cake things. He said it was delicious and finished it… I got to taste the broth though. Pretty yummy.
The first night he also got this salmon roll ($10?). I’m not that much of a sushi person, but I tried it and I thought it was alright.
I had to get a salad, and this one rocked. It was only $6 and it was huge.
And I got this grilled salmon (miso glazed, $9) and horseradish with some sort of roe. I actually chopped most of this up and put it in the salad – so awesome. If this were cheaper I would get it again (it was a fairly small portion).
The next time we went with my mom (she had been up to help me paint). I got the salad again ($6). It is gigantic and probably the best deal I’ve seen in New York.
My mom got a bento box which came with a small salad and miso soup.
That night I got the chicken teriyaki ($5 something?). Ahh, this was delicious. It came with a piece of broccoli and a piece of carrot.
This was the rest of my mom’s bento box – seaweed salads, rice, salmon teriyaki, tempura, and a roll. I helped her
Bobby got a soup again that night. I don’t remember which one. Or maybe this was the burdock one and the other one was something else. Anyway, this was delicious as well.
And that same salmon roll (I want to say it’s called salmon lover’s).
We went again last night for Salmon Thursday! Lots of salmon dishes were super-reduced, so Bobby and I went all out for salmon. Happy couple:
I got the salad yet again. Bobby got that salmon roll yet again.
Then… I got something called “salmon neck” for just $4. This plate is twice the size of a normal dinner plate. So huge!! It wasn’t all meat though (bones, eyes – you know – the usual).
It came with some horseradish stuff. Bobby also got a natto roll (fermented soybeans – I do NOT like this).
And another ridiculously cheap salmon roll (normally $14 or something, but on Salmon Thursday I think it’s $8).
Wow, what a lot of delicious Japanese food. I would highly recommend East. They have a few other locations as well. Bobby was the mayor briefly at this one, but he was ousted just last night.
What are your weekend plans? I am going to IKEA!
