Sunomono & Tilapia Sashimi at Sushi Thai Garden

28 Dec

Yesterday I ate lunch with a friend at Sushi Thai Garden in Saratoga Springs.  The temperature rose a few degrees and the sun was finally shining (brightly enough to begin melting frozen paths in Congress Park, which proved to be a challenge for my suede boots…), so it was a good day to be in Saratoga.  Regardless of the weather, I generally think avoiding track season crowds, makes for a good day in Saratoga.

I ordered a nigri/sashimi combination box lunch that also came with miso soup and sunomono.  I also had a thai iced tea that was delicious.  Sunomono (a new dish to me) is made by putting vegetables and/or seafood in sweetened vinegar — I had thinly-shredded carrots and daikon with tako (octopus) and kani (crab stick) — it may be my new favorite snack!  I also tried tilapia sashimi for the first time and it was wonderful.  The taste reminded me slightly of uni (sea urchin).  Sushi is one of the few foods I could eat every day (although not an entire plate of nigri and sashimi every day).

I recreated sunomono this afternoon with cabbage, carrots, and cellophane noddles.  I didn’t sweeten it as much as the restaurant version, so mine tasted healthier, but I’ll make it slightly sweeter next time.
