misofishy – santa monica california

my older brother just opened up a sushi restaurant in santa monica, ca…and yes, it’s called misofishy!  it’s been open for only a few months so if you’re around that area, please look it up.  anyways, he asked me to take some photos of his food for a new menu he was making.  it’s pretty amazing how he can make ordinary things look like art!  environmental designer turned sushi chef…who would have thought! haha

i have no idea what these rolls are called, but what an excuse to go to his restaurant and find out!  hey, i have to help a brother out…give him that shameless plug: misofishy – 1928 lincoln blvd., santa monica, ca 90405 – ask for steve!

although his website looks like crap (i’m allowed to say that since i’m his brother haha), check out www.misofishy.com in the next few weeks.  i’m designing a new site for him…should be better than his current one. =)

montreal, canada…i loved it!!

i just got back last friday from another business trip…this time i was off to montreal, canada.  i was out there for a work event but while out there, i had a chance to take in a few scenes and check out the city.  i forgot my camera at home so i had to borrow some of my co-workers and use my blackberry storm (i like to mention, this phone sucks!!).  my first impression of montreal was that it looked a lot like paris, but with a western touch.  most of the people who live there all speak french and english fluently which i thought was real cool.  the people that i met out there were real cool…very mellow and easy going.  and i have to mention this…the GIRLS…oh man!!  i would honestly say that 3 out of 4 girls were beautiful.  and the crazy BUT COOL thing was that they wore little to no make-up…it was straight up natural beauty.  the food was awesome too!  not once did i feel like that food tasted like doo doo…it was all good.  check out some of the pictures from my trip…i wish i had more. =(

this was dessert from the first night we were in montreal.  i have no idea what it was but it was freakin’ awesome!

here’s another shot of dessert we had the second night we were there.  basically, it’s maple syrup popsicle.  you literally poor some syrup on the snow to cool it down and once it’s somewhat frozen, you suck on it.  it tasted great!

below is a shot of the restaurant we ate at the second night there, where we had the maple syrup popsicle.  this place was actually the very first bar that opened in montreal.

this shot was taken with my blackberry storm.  a group of us went on a snowmobiling trip in the mountains…it’s like riding a motorcycle but in the snow.

this next shot was in a club somewhere in the city.  i was told it was a poppin’ place but we went on a wednesday night hence the lack of number of people in the room.
