こんばんは。This year, we celebrated Father’s Day one day early because the whole family wouldn’t be together on Sunday. So, I had my choice as to where to eat for dinner, but I really didn’t have any idea. After looking on Yelp, I decided to try Dimassi’s Mediterranean Buffet, which has been around for years, but we had never been to. Honestly, from the outside it doesn’t look too inviting, so we always dismissed it, but checking on Yelp, I saw that the reviews were actually quite good.
The variety of food was surprising, and the taste was yummy! There was gyro, shawarma, hummus, baba ghanoush, grape leaves, naan, salads, fish, curry soup, etc. And two kinds of baklava! Weekend price for the buffet was about $16 which is not bad.
I’m very happy that we finally decided to give Dimassi’s a try. I think we’ll be back again!
I’m sure many people who eat instant ramen like to “fancy it up” with extra ingredients from the fridge, right? My go-to is always an egg that I will drop in with two minutes to go on the timer, but for the Korean Ramyun I enjoyed today, I added a healthy amount of kimchee. It’s just so yummy! Now that I think about it, I don’t know why I am not adding nori to my ramen too. We usually have some on-hand in the freezer so there’s no excuse not to.
I’ve been enjoying the Spicy Fish from Asia Café for years now, and it surprises me that the taste is still as I remember the first time I ate it. The to-go container has changed a couple of times (and the portion my be slightly smaller) but the flavor is still yummy, oily, and hot. It’s great! I’m not sure what kind of fish fillet they actually use, but someone once said it was catfish. But another person said tilapia. I guess I could just ask the restaurant next time, but I like the mystery of not knowing. 😆
Dinner tonight was Hamburg Steak. It’s a popular dish in Japan, and Mariko made a sweet teriyaki-style sauce for it which made it even more delicious. A small salad, miso soup (made with homemade miso), and fluffy rice make it a perfect meal. 😌
