Lick My Spoon, wishing you a very Merry Christmas!
With lines out the door, Sushi Zone is no neighborhood secret, but it sure is a gem. This charming little sushi joint has been serving up exceptionally fresh sushi and other delightful morsels for almost eleven years: Sushi, sashimi, and baked bits of deliciousness!
Inspired by this delicious appetizer at Sushi Zone, I went on a mission to recreate it. Although Sushi Zone’s is still admittedly better (must be all that fresh sashimi-grade fish they use)â€¦this is a good do-at-home alternative.
There is nothing like a good excuse to have a dinner party, especially with the busyness of the season. Now, when I decided to throw this little party, I knew I wanted to feature seasonal ingredients that would make for a warm, cozy, winter dinner. And of course, I wanted some wow factor!
For a DIY recipe for Bun Cha Hanoi, Grilled Pork and Rice Vermicelli Lettuce Wraps, filled with delicious, fatty pork shoulder, fish sauce, garlic and grated onion.
Pomegranates are such a magical fruit. Smooth and conservative on the outside, once you split it open though, a lurid flood of color hits your eye. Perfect for Coconut Israeli Couscous Studded with Pomegranate.
Hanoi Beef Noodle Soup and the Sauteed Shrimp with Vermicelli, a steal deal for the Ferry Building in San Francisco, but kind of a jip for Vietnamese food.
