Yuki Sushi

You all know that whenever it’s up to my mom to pick a restaurant, it’ll b sushi. Hands down. Bar none. No questions asked. This is how I’ve ended up visiting many of the countless sushi joints in the Philadelphia burbs. One of them is Yuki Sushi, in Newtown Square. In a random strip mall, it was originally a thai joint, but no longer! Now it’s a sushi joint!
Green salad with ginger dressing… ubiquitous to sushi spots and one of my most preferred salads. This was well done. Look at the fancy cucumber slices!
My mom’s sushi regular, her go-to dish at any sushi joint. It was supposed to be 7 pieces of assorted sushi, but two of them are the same tuna. A perfectly respectable plate of raw fish.
I got the tempura udon. While the tempura bit was fine, I was thoroughly underwhelmed by the udon. The bowl was very small and the broth was bland! You should just get more, physically and figuratively, for $14. I’ve had better, I’ve had worse. If you have a hankering and you live close by, it’s certainly an option!

H Mart Dinners

When I don’t want to cook or have my mom cook, I love heading over to H Mart for something good and quick and hearty. Here are some selections. This is a random spicy pork stir-fry dish from monsieur tong tong. I mean, it was ok, but I wasn’t sure what type of cuisine this was supposed to be. It was pretty spicy.
here the tonkatsu from Monsieur Tong Tong. By far, this is their best dish, and probably some of my most favorite tonkatsu of all time. The piece of pork is absolutely huge and I really like their sauce. I could seriously eat this all the time.
My mom’s hwedupbap type of dish… with all kinds of shredded fresh veggies, imitation crab, fish eggs, and raw fish slices. Isn’t it colorful and beautiful? It tasted great too, except there were some bits of green stuff I did not like. I wasn’t quite sure what it was… it wasn’t exactly sesame leaves, but it wasn’t either. Whatever it was, I did not like!
A heaping bowl of chajangmyun, served with julienned cucumbers on top. For whatever reason, they always serve chajangmyun with cucumbers. I’d recommend all of these to try, except for the pork stir-fry. It’s ok, just not particularly interesting or great.

Tiffin Coming To Wynnewood

While running errands today, I saw that Tiffin was setting up shop in the old Wynnewood Pharmacy location. This is just doors down, if not next door, to Elevation Burger. Man, Wynnewood is getting lucky! I’ve been looking for a good indian takeout place since I stopped patronizing Khajuraho due to their horrific customer service (have not been there for nearly 4 years!). So for suburbanites like me, what an exciting opening to look forward to! Whoohoo!
