DINNER: Saturday, March 29, 2003
Another meal out, our third (in a row) this week. Tonight we ate at our favorite Cincinnati sushi place, SILLA. We ate there as a reward for successfully building (with only one washer left over!) our new Nautilus machine. MAN was that a bear.
About 3/4 of the way through construction, we discovered that one of the pieces installed in the first third of the installation was, in fact, installed upside-down. Fortunately, we were able to carefully unbolt three places, lift the offending piece out, rotate it, and reinstall the bolts with only slightly more than a minimum of trouble. Then, of course, we had to ROTATE this giant machine so it faced the television in our workout area. The whole installation took just over 2 hours.
So, we felt justified in going to SILLA for miso soup, green salad with ginger dressing, sushi (red snapper, salmon, toro & scallions, and a 'dragon roll' (which has eel, tempura shrimp, cucumber, roe, and more all rolled up in sushi rice)), along with some fried rice and Tempura Udon soup.
It was a delightful meal, consumed right at the sushi counter.
