Kay's Seven Deadly Challenges #3: "Gluttony"


"Sushi for Two One"

Sin #3 on the Seven Deadlies List is my personal favorite, "Gluttony". And in anticipation of this entry, I grabbed the camera one evening recently and took it out for sushi. Lucky for me it turned out the camera wasn't hungry, which left more for me (yaay!). What? No, of course I didn't plan it that way. What are you trying to say?

So because I know you're just dying to know, starting at the bottom we have the old standbys, bluefin tuna and fresh salmon nigiri, then just above that are two variants on the spicy tuna roll: the "crunchy" (left) and the "crazy" (right). Just to the right of that is the spicy yellowtail, being all shy and trying to sneak out of the picture. Next row up is the spider roll -- another staple -- flanked on either side by black peppered tuna (which was nothing short of pure awesomeness on rice!). Total intake, 12 pieces of nigiri and three rolls. The things we do for our art, huh? But it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make. After all, there's nothing I wouldn't do for my readers. 'Cause that's just how I roll (Get it? Roll? nevermind...)

This was a place I hadn't tried before, and one that opened relatively recently called Haru Japanese, or simply Haru. A little on the spendy side, but not hideously out of line with the other places around though I have a tip on another place that's supposed to be just as good and not as pricey... I'll get back to you on that one when I find out. Watch this space (No, not this actual space, c'mon. Don't be dense) and meanwhile got check out Kay's place for more sins of the flesh.Violence UnSilenced

There you go tempting people. Tempting this glutton to take her camera on a date and do all the taking and eating and eating....

If I was going to write about gluttony, it wouldn't be with pictures of sushi, oh no!
Well, maybe.... I'm feeling pretty hungry...

Roll! I always liked your sense of humor ;). Wow, this is a real temptation. I'm getting hungry. Still, I'm going for the cooked versions here. Best wishes.

Well I guess that's what Sin is all about, delicious in some provocative way. This Japanese food certainly covers delicious...:)

Looks yummy... And I'm not sure I think anything healthy like that can be counted as true gluttony even eaten in massive amounts.... but my relationship to glutton is not a healthy one. Looks like you and I were the only ones brave enough to tackle this sin... at least so far.
