Meteornotes Posted March 10, 2009 Share Posted March 10, 2009 So here's the deal: I am traveling a LOT over the rest of the year (I don't think I'm spending a full month at home until maybe December). As I am always trying to think of ways to amuse and entertain the fine residents of TPR, I figured, well, what could be a better way to do that then to document the various places I eat at while traveling?!? Yes, OK, I know, there are probably a lot better ways to entertain and amuse you, but this is what I have for today, so, um, go with it! Anyway, in this thread I'll be documenting various restaurants and the tasty (or not so tasty) items I end up eating. I will fully admit up front that I am somewhat of a food snob, and generally hate chain restaurants and such. So anyone coming in here thinking I'm going to be discussing the amazing culinary offerings at Chili's is likely to be very disappointed. I will likely only be documenting what I eat when not at home, as my regular diet at home consists of exciting things like yogurt, toast, and soup. I am horribly lazy, and often only eat very minimal things as cooking would take away from valuable time tormenting people on the internet. Just so you know. As always, my "awesome" photography skills will be on display. And there may be guest appearances by a certain character...so anyway, with that massive preamble, let's begin! First up is YAMATO SUSHI, located in action-packed Timonium, MD. I had never been to this place before, but had heard that it was pretty good, and since it's close to my house, I decided to check it out last week. It ended up being pretty good. Not the best sushi ever (that place might get documented this summer...oooooh, FORESHADOWING!), but it was certainly very good, and the roll selection is insane. They had two pages of special rolls, plus another giant list of rolls they make on a regular basis. Add all this to the regular sushi, tempura, and all the other food you'd expect at a Japanese restaurant, and you have quite the extensive menu of tasty treats! It's not a big place, so I'd advise going at off times if you're thinking of visiting, as it was very busy when I went on a Tuesday night. So I do recommend Yamato Sushi if you're in the area. Anyway, enough of my yammering, let's go to the visuals! dt Overall, Yamato Sushi was an excellent evening out, and it is Ice Bat approved! Hope you enjoyed this! Stayed tuned for our next installment, when I grab a quick lunch at another local restaurant. Until then, have a shark attack-free day! And this is a Dynamite Roll, though honestly it doesn't look like a roll. Spicy tuna, cooked eel, cucumber and some rice. Also tasty! And here are some rolls: From the bottom, we have a Philadelphia Roll (salmon and cream cheese), a Rock & Roll (tuna, eel and avocado), and a Black Dragon Roll (tempura shrimp, eel and avocado). Of the three, I liked the Philadelphia the best, but all three were very good. And like I said before, they had a HUGE variety of these available, which makes it cool to return and get totally different stuff. But this is what I came for: SUSHI! Here we have some yellowtail, and some Unagi, also known as eel. This is my favorite type of sushi, and is what I will always order to compare with other sushi places. This was very good, not the best I've had, and not even the best I've had in Baltimore, but still very tasty. So first up, some appetizers. Crab and cheese wantons (which were good, but very rich and almost overwhelming to the point that two of them were enough), and fried dough that had some sort of filling. Here it a shot of the place from the parking lot. You should be excited to know the place shares its space in the complex with other fine establishments like Petco and Superfresh. I was careful to not get any shots of the grocery store, just in case the anti-grocery store photography snipers might have been out, making sure no one photographs snickers bars without their permission.
