Strange Sushi: Is that fish in your pocket or are you just happy sashimi?

Standard

Sushi.  Is there a more perfect food?

Even take-out sushi is a thing of beauty:

When we lived in Spokane, our favorite sushi place was called Sushi.com.  Interesting name, yes?  Especially because, to my knowledge, they don’t have a website.  (Let me check to see if they do now…)

Well, they don’t seem to have their own website, but here is a link from a Spokane tourism site: Sushi.com.

When we moved to Eugene, we scoped out the local sushi scene.  I’d say we’ve been to most of the sushi restaurants in town, and it took disappointment after disappointment until we found Sushi Domo. It’s won a few awards for best sushi in Eugene–and it does live up to its high rating.  And–the head sushi chef looks like a Japanese (McDreamy) Patrick Dempsey.  That makes the sushi taste all the better.

During my recreational food googling, I’ve come across several strange renditions of sushi. Peanut butter?  Peeps?  Yuck?  I’ll let you decide.

Something ridiculous (as if the previous links weren’t):
