Sushi Maru in Bellevue is hands down the best conveyor belt sushi! It’s located in Bellevue and I heard they were opening one in the Northgate area which is both exciting and convenient because then I don’t have to go to the Eastside or pay a toll to cross the 520 bridge for some delicious “on the boat” sushi! Their plates range from $1.50-$3.50 which is are awesome prices for the variety and quality of sushi they have! They also have other menu items other than sushi. If you like Sushiland or Blue C Sushi, you HAVE to try this place out and tell me what you think!

I can’t remember which rolls were which! One had eel over a spicy tuna roll, another had seared salmon over a Cali crunch roll, etc. I will have to ask and edit this in the future! At the end, we had cheesecake! It was good, reminded me of Costco cheesecake! If you want quick and good sushi at a good price at a great venue then Sushi Maru is your go to joint!

The dynamic duo… splits! Please take a moment to leave a comment and congratulate fellow foodie/co-blogger/friend/roomie of mine Alana Garcia (@Alanita_Bonita) for getting an internship at an advertising agency in NYC! I am so proud of her and I know she is getting closer and closer to her dream but I miss her oh so much!! She left for the Big Apple on March 1 and I need to visit ASAP! Our friend Bill said “I would move to New York just for the food.” I’m pretty sure there is something mouthwatering around every corner of the concrete jungle. I want to splurge when I go since I’ve never been! Thank goodness for technology, specifically MacBook Pros and iPhones for making communication 10x better than just a text or phone call! FaceTime FTW!

Yes we know our site has been neglected for 6 months now. We’ve been starving ourselves and have nothing cool to post about it. Ok, now you can call us liars and slackers, but please believe we are coming back… SOON. I know, I know, you’ll believe it when it happens. We’re going to make it happen just you wait and see!

Hello Seattle food heads! We apologize for the lack of posts within the past month. We are working on a new look for our site and are planning on buying a domain. As always, please feed us back! We’d love to hear everyone’s two cents about what we can do to improve the site. We have plenty of ideas in mind but wouldn’t mind for more creative ideas to help us launch an improved blog! Thank you!

What did you have a for lunch? I thought I’d let emeraldbites readers have a taste and a look of lunch away from restaurants and into my home away from Seattle! I live in Roy which is a small city south of Tacoma and right next to Ft. Lewis. My cousin was getting married at the Lakewood Municipal Court yesterday afternoon and my aunt decided to have lunch at her house before the wedding. I wish I had lunch like this more often! I am definitely going to ask my mom and dad to teach me how to cook some of these Filipino dishes. I apologize that I wasn’t able to take a picture of each dish individually but I wanted to share it with you guys anyway!
Some of the dishes are:
Menudo which has a sort of Mexican flavor to it consists of potato, raisins, red pepper, pork, liver, and chick peas.
Pansit: Famous Filipino noodle dish. The ingredients can vary but the one we had has green beans, carrots, and chicken. It tastes amazing when you add lemon juice for more flavor!
Lumpia: Famous Filipino eggroll. My aunt’s lumpia has a distinct taste to it unlike any others that I’ve tried. Her lumpia has mushroom, pork, carrots, and another ingredient that my taste buds can’t figure out. I’ll have to ask her!
Bilog-bilog: This dessert translates to “circle circle.” It’s bascially rice flour rolled into little balls with other little jello cubes, bananas, and coconut to accommodate it.
Bibingka: A Filipino version of a casava cake.
Luckily a big lunch means lunch is also provided for the next day too so I had pansit again! (I listed the ingredients above and I know you can see bits of scrambled eggs in this picture but that was because I ate some before I dug into the pansit)
Remember to feed us back and you can send us pics of your lunches too! We all love taking pictures of food! firstname.lastname@example.org
