2 full days indoors and we loved it!
Kevin has been swamped with his graduate studies + long work hours which leaves no time for hobbies or me! On second thoughts, I could say that I’m proud of him because he’s actually pursuing his passion, that is, real estate development/finance. The fact that he’s taking on this 2 year risk will give him plenty of exposure to the industry and network. (go kevin!) Although I’m not nearly as busy as he is, I’m still finding ways to keep myself preoccupied. Grad school apps are still in my thoughts at the moment but let’s see how far I’ll take it this year.
Friday night, we went to Sushi Akio (fka Sushi Yasu) because we had a $50 gift certificate upon spending $100 so we each ordered the $50 omakase. Boy was the fish FRESH. The restaurant was previously owned by Japanese owners so they had a larger variety of sushi and a more knowledgeable chef. We had a great time because we had lots of fish and by the time we received our 15th sushi, we were over the top. Our favorite was the sweet shrimp. The head is completely deep fried and the body is .. sweet. After dinner, we ended up walking back because neither of us owns a car. Kevin’s been searching for a new car for months now.. lol
Today, we decided to venture to a new restaurant in his neighborhood, Cheburechnaya, an Uzbek/Russian restaurant. It was simply delicious! At first, Kevin was very reluctant to go in. The windows are pretty tinted so we have no idea what’s going on inside other than the huge space that they’re occupying.
Me: “hey, this is it. Let’s go!”
KK: “uhmmm, are you serious?!”
Me: “yeah, I wanted Russian”
KK: “ohhhhhhh myyyy gossssssh!”
Let’s see, we ordered a few dishes to try:
– Pumpkin samcy
– Mushroom chebureki
– Lamb Ribs Shish Kebab
– Lamb Kebab
– Lamb Meat on a Kebab
The total came out to $13. We’d definitely go back so if you’re ever in Rego Park, that’s where we’re taking you!
What a lovely weekend.
