On Saturday my mom and I went to Misato for supper because it was just the two of us and she was too lazy to cook. We decided to (finally) give the Cosmos Roll ($32.50) a try and I was glad that my mom didn't talk me into getting anything else besides a green salad, which we shared before the main course. The roll, which is deep fried lobster tail with strips of cucumber and lettuce wrapped in rice, deep fried asparagus, and a generous smattering of masago, was huge, to say the least. My mom and I could barely finish it. And despite the fact that I'm usually more of an Asian food purist, I must admit the Cosmos Roll was very delicious. I loved how all the deep fried parts were still warm in the sushi, and it came in a shallow pool of a sweet and spicy sauce (plus more on the side for dipping, but I didn't think it needed it.) Highly recommended.
Also, the Stampede is fast approaching, and for foodies, it either means finding the weirdest food you can on a stick, indulging in classic favourites like mini donuts or curly fries, or 10 days of free pancake breakfasts. Luckily for the latter group, Karo has set up a Flapjack Finder for all our flapjack finding needs. You can search for pancake breakfasts ahead of time by date or by location, or if you find yourself free on a random Stampede morning just click on "Today's Flapjacks" and see where that takes you. The Flapjack Finder also has recipes for you to host your own Stampede breakfast, and if you want to invite the city over, just add it as a public event.
