Japanese, Mexican, American, and Filipino Food!

JAPANESE FOOD
I officially kicked off my summer on the 1st week of May by eating at Yama Sushi for the 30th+ time haha... My sushi partners were Iza and Nessa. I think we ordered about 11 rolls, which was a lot for our tummies!

Ready to eat with the chopsticks!

A lot of spicy tuna on top yumm

I ate at Yama Sushi AGAIN the other night with Inna, Wendell and their relatives. I had the best service I ever had from them! Maybe because we had this awesome waitress who I've never seen before serve us and I guess they made our sushi fast because our party was big.

I love the quality of food served here in Yama Sushi.  I tend to compare the difference in the fish quality of another restaurant to Yama.  Some special rolls I recommend is the Screaming Orgasm (it really melts in your mouth), if you enjoy the taste of garlic try the Harry Potter Roll, and the Yama Crunch Roll if you like a bit of crunch!

MEXICAN FOOD

On my friend's last days of being a -teen, we ate at Casa Don Juan near Downtown. Its not hard to miss on Main St. because the restaurant itself is quite colorful. If you long for authentic Mexican food, this is the place to eat at. I ordered the Mojarra al mojo de ajo, and assumed it was just a fish fillet with garlic sauce (I should've asked the waiter to specify more about the dish), but I got way more than that, a whole fried fish! I couldn't finish it in one setting! I feel like I got more than what I paid for including their tortilla chips and flour tortillas, which tasted home made to me =D

AMERICAN FOOD

After my CNA graduation, my family and I ate at TGIF. I think all of their desserts are made for more than one person. Look at my vanilla ice cream topped with whipped cream and hot fudge. It was enormous!




FILIPINO FOOD

Yesterday my cousin, Dave, turned lucky number 7. We had the typical Filipino food served for his birthday. As you can see, all three of my cousins were excited! Not really, they weren't hyper yet:

Puto, carioca, pork bbq, pancit, fried fish, etc.
