So last week, i had dinner with my lovely co-worker girls, and we all loooove sushi, and since i'm the lone pedestrian, they let me pick the place, somewhere close by me, so they can drop me off after work. (they're the best!). And since i'd been raving about the neighbourhood hole in the wall, Sushi Bong, i insisted we check it out. We did end up getting kicked out of the 10 people seater eatery, so i suggest you be ready to cut your meaningful conversations short when the sole waitress hands you the bill to get the hell out.
Here's the bong sashimi for 2, @ around $20 bucks.
shrimp tempura @ around 9 bucks
this is 1 softshell crab roll... @ around 10 bucks
Dynamite roll @ around 6 bucks and spicy salmon roll @ around 4 bucks.
So after we got kicked out of Sushi Bong, it was SOMEBODY'S good idea to walk into the first brightly lite store, Marouf Tochal... i still have no idea what this place is! Like Ned Flanders' store where everything is left handed, everything here is pomegranate, pom juice, pom ice cream, pom slushes, pom smoothies....
After mulling over the menu for about 5 minutes and not finding anything, 2 of us decided to try the pomegranate ice cream with pomegranate syrup. Which, the syrup is actually quite interesting (they sell it there in bulk as well, for making dressings, or marinades, etc.) The ice cream was tart as hell, and i had an instant Renee Zellweger lemon face, but.. it tasted healthy! the PERSON who brought us to this place ordered nothing... haha
I checked out its facebook page and it lists it as:
For ppl who love sour flavor of pomegranate juice,pomegranate ice cream,pomegranate lavashak! and more products of pomegranate!
which, i cant really fault it. if you like sour. this is what you like
Lots of pom EVERYWHERE.
