EATS: Mitch’s Sushi

May 12, 2009

It’s been a while since we did an EATS (Ed Ate Tasty Stuffs/Ed Always Tastes Stuffs) segment up in hurr so it’s probably about that time eh?

Why the break in action? Well, mostly because the photos take like FO-EVAH fo edit and the payoff (feedback) is usually minimal. A recent trip to a popular sushi spot made me want to dip my toes back in the EATS water again. No let me down k? 😛

I first heard about Mitch’s Fish Market and Sushi Bar from my friend Kari. She’s been raving about it after eating there with her friend, and her friend’s husband, a fisherman, who’s been here many times before.

After weeks of pestering (from me me), Kari finally gave in and planned a group outing so we can go check um out. Below are the photos from that night.

We were led into the semi-private room (4 tables of 4) on the other side of the restaurant, which was designed almost like a Japanese tea house. Neat! Our friend Todd ordered the squid legs to get the party started.

The one thing I kept reading about in all of the online reviews was that the Spiny Lobster Sashimi was the thing to get. There was (no diggity) no doubt that I would be getting one this night, but there was one slight issue. “Mitch’s Special Course”, which included the spiny little thang, along with other popular appetizers, sashimi and more, had a 2 order minimum order rule. WTH?

At $95 a pop, I was like, “Are you fo real!?” Wifey is not a very big eater to begin with, so her portion would either go to waste or I would have to end up eating like a Manchild! No way Jose! I opted for ala carting the puppy, which actually worked out for the better. (If anyone from Mitch’s is reading this, please reconsider this rule. Me no likey.)

Another “must-try” according to the online reviews is the Van Van, a grilled shrimp, salmon, avocado, nori appetizer wrapped in white fish.

At the end of your meal, they take your spiny lobster scraps (along with the head), and finish you off with a scrumptious lobster miso soup. She go!

Overall a very delicious and “spoil yourself” dinner fo sho. Everything was extremely fresh (Mitch even has a huge lobster tank in the back) and top notch. The only thing I would complain about is the price (it’s not cheap), but you definitely get what you pay for (in a good way). Hope y’all enjoyed this one! Dayem, I’m getting hungry again looking at all these photos! Apologies if you are too. 😛

Where In Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? – April 15, 2009

April 15, 2009

NeedaHobby took her first one home after correctly guessing “airport” in last week’s contest! Not bad for something that looked like “chocolate chip cheesecake” (according to snow)! 😛 Please help me congratulate sistah Hobbz!

A-ight, I’m gonna make this a lil’ easier for all y’all this week. The shot is wider and shows a lot more, but I’ll also guess that for this one, you’ll recognize the area, but won’t be able to come up with the words to describe it. Muhahaha. Nah, knowing you smaht buggahs, you probably will anyway. I think I’m less tricky than I thank.

Ready, set, GUESS!
