captain ahab meets his match
I always regarded Sushi and Sashimi as girlie food. I mean, girls just dig the stuff. These dainty little delights are small, colourful and you always look cute eating them. And besides they rationalise, what harm can a cute little morsel like that do to your waistline? Of course most women conveniently forget that they're scoffing down 20 of these lil' suckers at a go. :)
Anyway, despite being the manly-man that I am, I confess to have a weakness for Salmon and Tuna Sashimi. I mean, damn, the stuff is good. And there's something... erm... savage about a man stuffing his face with raw fish. Hurrr hurr hurrrhh!!!!
We bought the above at Jusco over the weekend. RM 19.90 gets you 11 slices of fresh Salmon, a dollop of Wasabi, a sachet of soy sauce, a green plastic leaf and a yellow plastic flower. You can also get 7 slices for 14.90. That works out to approximately RM 1.80 a slice. It's expensive considering there's no cooking whatsoever. Damn ripoff. This can only be an occasional treat.
"Get the small one, you know I'll just take one or two," Mae tells me. I get the big one anyway. She proceeds to eat 5 slices. Feh! So much for "one or two"!
