Sushi Tei (Albany, NY)

The first day of spring. Cold and dreary… not how I wanted to start the day. But at least it ended on a good note. Not too long ago Albany Jane, R from Chopsticks Optional and I discussed having a girls night sushi fest. Along the way we got A, a cider donut tour veteran to join us. It was my first time going there, and I can’t believe I waited this long to do so.

I got to the restaurant early, and got a table. I timed it perfectly – soon after I arrived the place started to fill up. If you’re thinking about going here with a group, it wouldn’t hurt to call ahead and have them reserve a table. It’s a small dining area, but it didn’t feel cramped at all. While I waited for the rest of the group to arrive I flipped through the menu to figure out what to order. There is a lot of stuff on there, and of course I wanted to get everything.

But if I did that, then I wouldn’t have a reason to come back. Silly girl, tackle that menu in multiple visits!

Oh, natto. You evil, evil stuff.

Finished off with green tea tempura ice cream, which I absolutely cannot pass up.
