The mercury sensation (that's sweeping this part of the nation), is forcing me to find alternatives to my standby, the spicy tuna roll. For example, after squash tonight I called up Shinju - my tiny, local, amazing but inexpensive sushi spot - and included in my order a spicy scallop roll which, I happen to know, does not appear anywhere on their menu. And yet, ten minutes later I picked it up and enjoyed it in excellent company at 2 Gold.
That's right, dear reader(s), I've gone off-menu at Shinju. This is probably not so much an actual accomplishment as much as something most people do by accident, but whatever. Maybe I'll celebrate at this place, which was just highly recommended to me. A bar with Scrabble?? Yes, please.
