Even though I had a lovely invitation to visit extended family of the friends I'm staying with... I find that I still can not attend large social occasions...


So... I took myself off to my favorite sushi place in Fort Collins, Jeju Restaurant...

I asked for Omakase, which means in Japanese, literally, that I put myself in your hands, in your care. The head chef created a feast for me that I would like to share with you here...


I started with a warm cup of green tea...

after that came the nigiri with the freshest hamachi roll...
sans the scallop nigiri that I ate
before remembering to take a picture...
