Cold Snow and Baby Pineapples - dbgb -

"I apologise if you think i'm ranting... but this is exactly a sample of my thought process and of course again.. you don't have to agree with it.. and it's still work in progress and evolving.. but there are many povs in life and i'm just sharing mine with you... but yes.. this is why i think in a global sense.. because essentially all humans the same [sic]... we're just as good and definitely just as bad and we'll all to some degree fit to the bell curve...

i just want to be honest with you because i do think honesty is important... and i rather you hate me for who i am than love me for who i'm not."

Kuho 65, Brooklyn, NYC

So on a particular chilly night, hotpot was definitely a viable option. We decided to check out this place based on a client's recommendation. Hotpot and sushi? Interesting.

We were rather pleasantly surprised with the quality and cleanliness of the restaurant. The hotpots are individual little pots so there's no communal dunking, the food is fresh and replenished quickly. The variety of sauces is also quite decent. The beef in particular was quite nicely marbled.

Expecting the sushi to take a backseat in this meal, the variety of rolls we ordered were definitely better than some non-buffet joints. True, it's not the best sushi in the world but for this price, their spicy tuna rolls do give the rest of the competition a run for their money.

Awash, Manhattan, NYC

Located on 6th street between 1st and 2nd ave, it was my first time trying this place. Have always been on a lookout for decent Ethiopian food after the first time having had it in DC.

Glad to say that the food here wasn't a wash, most of the flavors were distinct and the spice was not overpowering. In particular, the gored gored which is basically spiced raw beef cubes was quite delectable. Finishing the meal with some tej, this place may become a regular for my Ethiopian fix after all.
