I spent the day at my parents’ house in San Ramon. They kindly let me use their washer and dryer to do my laundry, saved me from using all my quarters 🙂 We went out together for dinner at Koi Garden because my parents had just recently been there for the delicious lobster. The restaurant was experimenting with a lobster “three-ways”: sashimi, rice, and stir-fried.
The sashimi was delicious with a bit of lime, wasabi, and soy sauce. The texture is a bit crunchy but also like fish.
My parents were already experts at this so they asked for a pot of hot sharkfin flavored broth to poach the lobster and lettuce. The soup was tasty and warmed us all up. I preferred the lobster meat raw though, the fresh flavor was more pronounced.
My dad compared the rice dish to a Spanish paella, except this was curry flavored and very much Asian.
I didn’t care for it as much, a bit too many onions, not enough other vegetables, and not enough sauce for all the rice.
My phone camera went on the fritz and I couldn’t take a picture of the last “way” which was stir fried with green onions. Tasty but a mess to eat.
A very satisfying dinner with my family.
