Lately, we’ve seen more and more Asian influence popping up in restaurants in the vicinity of Carleton Place. Within a half hour drive, you can have Chinese food, Thai food, Cambodian food, Japanese food, or Korean food. It would be nice to add a Vietnamese place to the list, but I don’t know of a good one yet. And now, on our main street, we have Bubble Tea! Some of us at the library are excited to try it, and others have been less enthralled by the idea, but we’ll see what happens.
I am a big fan of sushi lately, but have not tried to make it a home. And the Korean stone bowl is one of my favourites, with kimchi on the side. Yum! However, there are lots of great cookbooks out there to provide step-by-step instructions for all kinds of Asian food. Try:

But what about dessert? I’m a dessert person and although I enjoy the little fortune cookies or orange slices that you get traditionally at the end of a meal, I always thought there should be something more. I came across a fabulous site that does just that….makes traditional sushi with very untraditional ingredients. It’s dessert sushi!
Ice cream Sushi!
You can read the whole article on a blog called Not Martha. She has some wonderful links there to different kinds of dessert sushi. You can even order chocolate sushi. How fun!
So maybe I can enjoy a trip to a restaurant and come home to chocolate sushi and my night would be complete.
