After a stint in Spain, my good friend Manelay is now back in her hometown! El Hey. This means more meals, more walks and more chats about where life is taking us. We are learning to be in charge of our destinies :)
Our reunion last week took place at Bui Sushi, a local Malibu sushi restaurant in the Colony Plaza. Since Nobu down the street costs an arm and a leg, we can't quite go there for the "casual catch up" just yet. Manelay ordered hamachi sashimi dusted with peppercorns and perfectly round jalapeno slices for a little kick. She also got the house green salad served with a wonderful Japanese dressing that gives the greens some good flavor. I'm such a spicy tuna fan, so I got the lettuce cups and filled each one with a generous helping of spicy tuna. I also got the miso eggplant, which I devoured in seconds!
