I knew we’d be back but I didn’t think it would be within 24 hours. What can I say? We love Mala! I tried not to order the same stuff as last time but we had to get another order of Brussels sprouts because they’re damn good.
(To clarify, when I say that I’m eating Paleo when dining out I’m just trying to avoid grains, starches, and refined sugars. I know that most restaurants use sugar, starches, and soy in their marinades and sauces but I just pretend I don’t know.)
Here’s what we ate at lunch today:
Cucumber salad with furikake:
Stir fried Brussels sprouts with sesame seeds, fresh mint, and crispy wontons (we ate around the wontons):
Ahi Burger (house made) with romaine, tomato, tartar sauce, and fries. I asked them to hold the bun and my kids ate my fries. Bad paleo mommy!
Avalon seared sashimi with spicy shiitake ginger sauce:
I have to admit that the sashimi was not one of my favorite dishes. I expected it to be more Japanese-y instead of Chinese-y. Plus, there was a huge dollop of mashed potatoes on my plate that wasn’t advertised on the menu. WTF? Who pairs sashimi with mashed potatoes? I forgive you, Mala, but it better not happen again.
Who am I kidding? We’ll probably be back in the next few days.0
