(Hopefully Short) Hiatus

Hello there! I know I just started my food-blogging experience but unfortunately, I will be embarking on a very time-consuming journey for the next two months. I know I most likely won’t have time to blog then but from what I hear, I will be having lots of material to blog about once I come back! 😀 For any readers that might be out there, hang tight while I take care of a few things this semester and hopefully I will be back by Thanksgiving but definitely by the time winter break rolls around. 🙂

Tomo Japanese Cafe

So I have started classes again and that means I will barely have time to do things non-work related. However, I am still eating well and will try to continue to find time to write about these eating experiences. Last Friday, my friend Stephanie and I went to a cozy little Japanese sushi restaurant called TOMO. The one that I went to in Elmhurst (about an hour train ride on the R from the Village, faster if you take the E/F and transfer) is called TOMO Japanese Cafe while the other location in Jackson Heights is called TOMO Japanese Cuisine. Don’t know why they have two different names but what they both do have is good, cheap sushi.

Stephanie introduced me to this place a little under a year ago and at that time, I didn’t even like sushi. She convinced me to go with her using the words “3 rolls for $10 and $1 sushi/sashimi!”. Well, I always love a good deal and had to see what the sushi fuss was all about. The sushi there was actually quite tasty and ever since, I’ve been trekking there for my cheap sushi fix.

Fine & Schapiro: Fresh & Tasty

On Wednesday, my mom and I took our annual day-to-mourn-the-end-of-summer trek to the city, with the hopes of finally making it to the High Line park, which we had failed to do two years earlier because we couldn’t find the entrance to it. We started the day uptown and had lunch at a nice Jewish deli called Fine & Schapiro. I had a groupon for the place, which entailed us to two soups, two king-sized sandwiches and a fruit salad. I settled on the matzo ball soup and the corned beef, tongue and turkey sandwich while my mother decided to get the mushroom barley soup and the pastrami, tongue and turkey sandwich.
