Recently, I had my first foray into the world of kaiten sushi, or conveyor belt sushi. Kaiten sushi is very popular in Japan, and it seems to be gaining a bit of popularity in the states, as well. I visited Sushi Station in Elgin, IL to taste my first sushi on a conveyor belt. Read all about my experience after the jump! Read the rest of this entry »

If I could offer you one piece of advice to boost your culinary confidence it would be: make your own sushi. In all the foods I love to eat out at restaurants, sushi always seemed the least attainable in my own kitchen (takeout notwithstanding). So this past weekend when David had the great idea to make our own sushi, I was amazed at our delicious results. We are by no means masterful sushi chefs but at least now we know that if it’s sushi we crave, restaurants aren’t our only option.

After our whirlwind weekend tour of Buenos Aires (full of tango dancing, street festivals, bus tours and shopping), we decided on Monday that we needed a day to relax. We slept in that morning and gave ourselves a lax agenda that consisted of only one destination: the Japanese Gardens. A cute little place to walk around, the gardens were nice but something tells me they are not the main attraction. At least for me, the highlight of this day trip was visiting the on-site restaurant:Jardin Japonais (Japanese Gardens).
