Back to Sushi Blues for lunch today. I was *NOT impressed, not after Asahi and Waraji the last few weeks. The Kimchee roll is spice-less at SB, the spider temaki (hand roll/cone) was kinda small, and the tuna roll had a large quantity of onion. OTOH, the Flying Fish roe was OK, and the Scallop *HUGE*.

The sweet shrimp was OK. I think I like Asahi best, with Kashin second. The Tokoyo House in Cary is great, but my co-workers won’t eat there, since one of them had a bad time at the Raleigh one.

Otherwise, more of the usual. Busy, busy, busy. I certainly can’t wait for end-of-quarter, when I can rest up. As it stands, I’m working extra just to keep up. And with Jenny out of town next week, things will be extra busy.

Oh well, back to the grind. Maybe I can rest some this weekend.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    I think all places will pale in comparison to Asahi for me now :) My suggestion – if you haven’t tried it, try the white tuna. It is absolutely heavenly.

    By the way it was nice to meet you finally the other day. I’m sorry I wasn’t much for conversation – I was awfully wiped out. I’ve been helping a friend move this week and with running doug back and forth to work and so on I’ve been just run ragged this week. *sigh*

    Sometime soon my life will return to a bit more normal – and as soon as it does I will be sure to swing by your cube to visit. Maybe we’ll even do a game of pool or sushi the three of us some day. :)

    Actually, Waraji and Asahi are about equal in my book, it’s just I like the atmosphere at Asahi better. not as yuppie as Waraji, and the prices are better.

    You and me both – I had *JUST* finished unloading after our demo on Thursday in Charlotte, so was ready to come home and pass out.

    Normal? Life gets normal? But yeah, pool, sushi, hanging out, whatever – it’s all cool. Once Doug is a little more mobile, that is :)

    We used to eat at Sushi Blues frequently when they opened. They used to be much better, but slid downwards steadily to where we’ve given up on them. Now it’s either Waraji in Raleigh, or Sushi Thai in Cary.

    it took me six months to find great sushi here in cleveland. people here do not consume it like they do in the south. :( of course cleveland is pretty blue collar but still…

    “Oh well, back to the grind. Maybe I can rest some this weekend.” with those two cutie pie boys? no way are you getting rest!! ;)

    See, I’m not all that keen on Sushi Thai anymore, either. We used to eat at the Raleigh one all the time.

    Maybe the Cary one is better? I need to stop by and see what’s new at Fallen Orc anyway. Now I have an excuse *grin*

    If you’ve not tried Asahi yet, you should. recomended it to me, and it kicks ass.

  6. alchemist says:

    Yeah but Cleveland has some kick-ass Italian and Polish food, and that’s easy to find, so I guess it sort fo ballances out.

    And there is that whole landlocked thing.

    Cutie Pies? You must be kidding. One is talkative boy, and might drive me insane, and the other has reached into-everything-boy stage.

    OK, they are cute, but mostly when sleeping. *grin*

    Personal fave is still Sushi Tsune for me.

    But sushi blues is pretty good as well.

    Just tried ShabuShabu up on wakeforest (same
    shopping center as Intrex). Pretty good.
    Japanase/Thai place, kind of upscale, but
    there sushi prices didn’t seem too bad.
