sushi lovin'


having a family is quite a fine balancing act
a balance of time
a balance of attention
a balance finances

our little family's current financial situation is
quite a fine balancing act...it's almost art (haha!)

so eating out is budgeted and not done too often

when we do eat out, it's almost always at our favorite sushi restaurant
my hubs and i have been eating here since we were in college
it was a little hole in the wall back then
but a few years ago they took over the store next to them and expanded
and they opened a second location a year or two after that
the prices have never gone up and the sushi is the best in vancouver

the girls love salmon nigri sushi and udon

when other patrons see my girls eating raw salmon sushi 
they stare in amazement


but they really do love it!
zoe can polish off five on her own and pia can polish off three!
they don't do wasibi  though (i don't either!)

if we don't do sushi
then it's thai or vietnamese

what kind of cuisine do you like to go out for?

My boyfriend and I LOVE to go out for sushi. I really like the unagi at the place we go to. They also make a yummy spicy salmon roll :)

Awww I hope when I have kids that they'll enjoy sushi as much as I do too!

mmm i love sushi! that is quite amazing that your girls like it too!! they must be good eaters. i also love thai food. and we are in the same boat financially, we're not able to go out to eat often. but when we do, we so enjoy it!

We don't eat out too often either . . . with a 15 month old and a 2.5 year old . . . sometimes, it is not even worth the hassle, {that and I love to cook} But coincidentally enough, when we do get date night, we head directly to our fav sushi spot. We always say that we want to take the boys some day . . . this has me thinking today is the day! I would love our boys to love sushi just as much as we do! Beautiful pictures, as always! xo Samantha

My kids won't touch raw -- yet. Hopefully. But then again, I'm fine buying them the cheap cucumber rolls!

I think too many kids in the US are used to junk food so when a child likes normal food is a big shock to onlookers :-D

My daughters love sushi too! And olives, and avocados, and all kinds of other stuff which I have heard more than once is not "typical kids' food" - funny, I always thought that once they get their teeth, kids food is the same as adults' food ;-)

Good for you guys! salmon is super-healthy, lots of DHA, great for tots!

hubby and i use to go out to eat ALL the time..i mean seriously all the time..but now were trying to eat out less and cook more at al. It's so expensive for just dinner at a restaurant!!!

Wow you girls are brave! I love sushi but not sure if i can do straight raw fish though :D
