if you could've tried to trust the hand that fed

aventures at roy's:

- the waiter was coveting a dSLR (specifically, the 40D), and so he was amused while taking group pics of us and playing with my camera. he ended up taking, like, 5 shots:


(unfortunately it was really really dark and i had to use flash for all these food shots, which is tricky...and makes me want an external flash even more)

- i had this crunchy winter roll for my appetizer. it was shrimp tempura, avocado, shiso, curry aioli sauce and some other stuff and it was delicious:


- a few of us had this miso-glazed salmon salad, which was also delicious. the salmon was soooo tender and flavored just right:


- my main dish: crab dynamite...which wasn't actually crab (the sauce was crab-based). it was sashimi inside some seared fish. it was awesome. so, so good.


- for dessert, most of us got the warm chocolate souffle. let's just say...it was heavenly.


- one of us opted for this praline thing. it was like flan, but also quite good.


- we ended up in a huge food coma:


ah, restaurant week. i loved you. i wish i could've tried more places. now can next year's be here already?

Yumyumyum. Going to have to try that place! My girls and I love food comas too, although we usually go to Honda Ya for that. You should definitely check it out of you're down in the OC: http://orangecounty.citysearch.com/profile/640491/tustin_ca/honda_ya_japanese_restaurant.html

They're open til 1am, which is perfect for after-hours snacks. :)
