Recently it was my mom's birthday. I knew she enjoys Sushi; so me, Niel, my brother and Christine decided for her birthday we would take her and my dad to a Japanese restaurant in my neighborhood. The food and service is fabulous and we had fun. We ordered:Shumai(steamed Shrimp dumplings), Gyoza(fried pork dumplings), Sweet potato tempura roll, spider roll, caviar roll, and Love Boat(combo of Shashimi(no rice) and sushi) that came in a boat. I was happy my dad also enjoyed Japanese food. Even the Sushi! My mom especially loved the pickled ginger. She ate a bowl of it. Seriously. My mom was really good at mastering holding chopstikcs. My dad gave up after a bit and used a fork. We all admitted to using our chopsticks and stabbing into food at times. Afterwards we came back to Niel and my place for some cake and rainbow cookies while my mom opened up her presents. Pics here. Those few days were good minus Niel's softball league getting rained out. And me having to go to a dentist. As an April Fool's joke she said my bottom teeth needed to be pulled. LOL. We watched Lord of War. Very serious. Seemed more like a documentary. Got new cellphones. I can take photos now with my phone! And also we both purchased work shoes. Went to a Mets game. They won. Niel was so happy! Stadiums now are offering food options with more variety besides the usual ballpark fare. Such as Pizza, hot dogs, beer, pretzels, peanuts, etc. My favorites are corn dogs and sausage and peppers. Shea now offers cuban sandwiches and Arepas(griddle cakes with mozzarella cheese. The Foodnetwork had a special about it too. Pictures here. We also ate at a place we hadn't before. Fun times.
