Live Action Quick Tips
Did you know….
Sushi (which actually refers to the seasoned rice on which raw fish is served, not the fish itself) was originally sold as street food in Japan starting around the 8th century. It is said to have arrived in the U.S. in the late 1960s, with the opening of Kawafuku Restaurant in Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo. Some claim that sushi restaurants opened in America as early as 1950, but Kawafuku put the cuisine on the map, catering to Japanese businessmen and their American colleagues. A small number of sushi restaurants began to open outside the confines of Little Tokyo, and the cuisine gained popularity, especially with Hollywood celebrities. The creation of the now ubiquitous California roll helped to propel sushi forward, as crab and avocado were more palatable to Americans than slabs of glistening raw fish. Cosmopolitan cities like New York and Chicago soon followed suit with sushi spots of their own, and by the late 1980s, sushi was a full-on craze, with an enormous rise in the number of Japanese restaurants towards the end of the decade and into the 1990s.

It’s the weekend and time to get into live action!
The Avengers just came out, the Mayweather and Pacquiao fight is going down tonight and bottom line it is a nice day out and time to get outdoors and enjoy some festivals!
What better way to start off the weekend than celebrating with a great exotic meal. I enjoyed this exciting launch of the weekend at a fantastic Japanese restaurant named Sen Dai!
Let’s talk about it…
There are so many delectable dishes at a Japanese restaurant. You usually have Miso soup available, Edamame, Bento boxes and last but not least, Sushi!
I’m not a big Sushi guy but I love the freshly made sushi they make here. Each item rolled into these small round fantasies of love pack a punch and will have you begging for more.
I usually get a Califoria roll, or the Unagi rolls when I eat sushi. Bottom line, as long as it is cooked I will eat it. I am not into the uncooked stuff.
“Trev, how you gonna write about sushi and you didn’t even eat tons of sushi?!”
“My dear positive thinking friend, I’m not done yet..Let me tell you about my main course…”
One of the primary reasons for journeying into this land of paradise is for the Salmon Misoyaki Bento box containing grilled salmon that is marinated in a sweet and salty Miso sauce.
The salmon is so rich with flavor and tender that it melts in your mouth. The Miso sauce they provide you with is some creation of a mad scientist that has such a distinct and sweet taste that you want to add it to a glass of milk and just drink it down.
The food is plenty and you’ll have just enough room for the sushi of your choice. Make sure you get there early because this place is well known and is packed all throughout the day. True live action eating!
Thanks for joining me on today’s adventure! I look forward to seeing you on the next run! Keep hope alive!
Eating is an enjoyable way of life.Live it..Learn it..Love it!
