Poké Go opened last year, making it one of the first poke-centric restaurants in San Diego. The restaurant focuses on poke and Asian fusion dishes.

The restaurant space is small, with only a handful of tables for dine-in guests. After perusing the menu, we placed our order at the register and then waited for it to be prepared in the kitchen.

I have to admit, it felt a little odd not having a poke station out in the open, where you can see all the options and watch them making it. But the menu did have a decent selection for a custom platter, including choosing from five fishes and five seasonings.

Today is National Doughnut Day! In honor of that, I’m sharing one of my doughnut stops in Japan.

One of the things I like doing on international trips is checking out chains from the US and seeing the different menu options. At the Krispy Kreme in Tokyo, there were quite a few different donut flavors not offered in the US. They were also celebrating 10 years in Japan and so they were featuring a signature flavor from each year they’ve been in Japan.

I couldn’t believe how beautiful the donuts were. Each one was so picture perfect– almost a little too perfect. They actually reminded me of the fake display dishes that you sometimes see at Japanese restaurants.

Over the last few months, I’ve been very intrigued by the Raindrop Cake. Inspired by a traditional Japanese dessert, Mizu Shingen Mochi, the dessert was introduced to the US by Chef Darren Wong at Smorgasburg in New York. Since then, the unique looking dessert has become very popular.

The name Raindrop Cake comes from its appearance– which looks like a giant raindrop– as well as the taste. When you bite in, the dessert dissolves in your mouth, like eating rain. The dessert is very delicate and is supposed to only hold its form for about 30 minutes.
