Sushi isn't for everyone. I get that. It's a bunch of slippery, often raw slices of fish. Despite this, I happen to love it. When I was little, I thought I didn't like sushi because all I had tried was the California Roll. As I became more adventurous as a foodie, I realized the big wide world of sushi options, and how awesome it is! There are countless different textures, styles, and flavors of sushi, all of which are brought to you in the prettiest presentation.
When I came to Boston, it was important to me to find a really amazing sushi place, and Shiki Sushi definitely lives up to that high standard. We came here for lunch and ordered the Sushi Moriawase lunch set, which comes with miso soup, salad, and a plate of chef's choice nigiri (fish + rice) and maki (rolled) sushi.
There's something about Japanese salads I always enjoy, and I think it's the dressing. I also love the salty miso soup.
How pretty is this plate? I love the Japanese focus on presentation in their food - they really make it a work of art.
After lunch, we perused the cutest little local farmer's market, where we found these delish Boston Bonbon macaroons. From right to left, these are green tea, nutella, and red bean paste flavored. The nutella was my fave!
