Foodie Files

Holiday Eats

Foodie Files is a series on the blog where I write about my recent foodie adventures! This entry focuses on the meals I had during the most recent holiday season. The title may be a little misleading from what I actually ate since holiday eats focuses on ham but I didn’t have a single piece of that…

EMC Seafood and Raw Bar

My family originally had plans to drive to Las Vegas but canceled our plans after the freeway was temporarily shut down due to the road conditions and snow. We ended up heading to the mall and dining at EMC Seafood and Raw Bar. I tried their lobster roll which had a good serving of lobster and went wild with their salmon & albacore carpaccio – it was amazing!! I’m still day dreaming of the carpaccio until this day.


Following our meal at EMC, we stopped by Somisomi for some dessert. I opted for the milk tea and ube swirl for my flavor and having felt guilty for the amount of carpaccio I consumed, chose to have no filling and toppings on my ice cream. Their soft serve is amazing and I highly recommend it.

Sushi Kuni

After the great sushi episode of early 2019, I have done well with avoiding sushi. However, after craving for more salmon and albacore carpaccio, my family and I decided to eat seafood again the next day. We chose to dine at Sushi Kuni, one of our favorite local sushi spots. My younger brother and I decided to do the all you can eat and, you probably guessed right, we ordered a bunch of salmon and albacore carpaccio. We also got some orders of the sashimi and lobster rolls.

Like I said, I decided to spend the holiday season with my own version of holiday eats! Until the next adventure!

    Ooo, you have really had some tasty food! I am not the biggest fan of sushi but do love the veggie versions more with a shot of wasabi! That dessert looks delicious! I will have to see if there is somewhere here in the UK that serves something similar!

    Thank you for sharing!

    Holy cow that milk tea and ube swirl sounds AMAZING. Why don’t we have something amazing like that here in the East coast?! Maybe I just don’t know it yet LOL. Glad you guys got to go out and get some good grub!! I’m still super afraid to go out anywhere, I don’t even know if the mall is open here or not but I’m trying to avoid people at all costs LOL. Thanks for making me hungryyyyy UGHH! XD

    Everything looks so delicious!! I’ve never heard of a lobster roll but would love to try it once quarantine is over.
    Also, soft-serve ice cream in a fish-shaped cone?!? Need to try!

    You & Nancy are delivering all the food goals!! Lockdown has got me thinking about the places I want to visit after – and to be more experimental with my food choices, especially when visiting bigger cities when wider choices are available. Stay safe xx
