Momiji, Ice Cream & Malbecs

I was treated to an awesome sushi dinner to celebrate my birthday at Momiji Japanese Restaurant this past Friday. It had been a long time since I had visited this establishment. My previous experience went well, so I was looking forward to this meal.

What did we eat? Started with some miso soup and a salad.

Then arrived the Love Bridge – Chef’s selection of assorted sushi, spider rolls and spicy roll. Check this out…

Not only was the sushi well presented – I was a big fan of the fire – it tasted amazing. Prefect crunch of the spider roll, nice heat in the spicy roll and freshness of the fish. We ate it all. Very satisfying.

Ended with a drink. I’m testing out some Malbecs. I’m looking for the best one. First up was this Trivento Malbec. Made in Mendoza, Argentina, it has aromas of blackfruit plus a hint of pepper and spice. Well balanced with ripe blackfruit flavours and soft tannins on the finish. It is an extra dry wine and not one for my fave list.

Next…Pascual Toso Limited Edition Malbec. This dry wine with aromas of plum and blueberry with spice and peppery notes was pleasing to the nose and taste buds. This one goes on the good list.

My 3 faves – sushi, ice cream and Malbec – all in one night. I am thankful. =)
