to eat to drink to bake to cook to live

A curious case of food envy

i am not sure about all of you – after i ordered something, the next thing you know i am eyeing on someone else’s lunch/ dinner instead of focusing on mine – FOOD ENVY!

i was at my favorite japanese restaurant matsuo sushi for lunch (i can only afford their set lunch :p) and the unagi set was the lunch special. included in the set was a plate of salmon sashimi and i thought “oh great. two of my favorite things to eat”. and of course the lady beside me got to order the sashimi set which got me thinking whether i make the right choice for my lunch.

unagi set (S$17)

sadly i didnt make the correct decision. the salmon sashimi was great – cold and fresh. but the unagi. i wished i can say i like it. but the glaze was overly sweet. it was so sweet that i only managed to finish two slices of unagi.

and of course, while i was having my lunch, i keep eyeballing on someone else’s sashimi set and scolding myself for not ordering it.  arghhhhh.

  1. I know food envy all too well. I always order the “wrong” dish! Then I’m full of envy and regret all bundled into one. Gah, a glutton’s regret.

  2. you should see my “sore loser” face – i was v sad and miserable. almost tempted to order a second lunch for myself. ha
