Sunnysidefood.com’s 1 year anniversary at Ariyoshi

Today marks the 1 year anniversary of sunnysidefood.com! In this past year, I covered just over 60 local eateries – and there are about as many still left. I originally intended to go to Salt and Fat to celebrate, but I neglected to check that they are actually closed on Mondays. Fortunately, the celebration went on regardless, and we just moved it to the Japanese restaurant Ariyoshi across the street, which I actually already reviewed twice.

Pete, what was this dish called? It was tasty.

Sushi & Sashimi platter

I spent a long time thinking about what to order, and finally settled for this $21 sushi and sashimi platter, which also came with a miso soup.

Chirashi

Chirashi

This is a $14 Chirashi – assorted raw fish over vinegar rice (ordinarily white rice, but substituted with brown rice here).

This is a $14 barbecued eel (unadon). Very rich in taste, served over rice – the fish practically melts in your mouth.

Sake

No celebration would be complete without some sake. This here is a good one, but we also got a bottle of apple-flavored sake, which was more reminiscent of apple juice than of sake.

  2. Congrats, and thanks for doing what you do–big fan of this site. BTW, def. recommend venturing out to Elmhurst for Ayada–beats any Thai in Sunnyside (though, granted, I’ve yet to try I Am Thai).
