Break for a Date

This just in: Moving is draining.

We achieved our goal for the day of moving every last thing out of our old apartment. It looks so bare!

Tomorrow we’ll follow up with the floor-to-ceiling clean. Ohhhh joy! 😀

After lots of trips to and from our old place to our new place and lots of loading and unloading the car, we were ready for a quality break from the moving madness. When Ryan suggested a date for some sushi I was more than game!

We showered up and headed downtown to Bento for dinner.

Smiling for Sushi

When we sat down, I ordered a miso soup and Ryan ordered edamame for us to share.

Miso Soup


Aside from sushi, Bento also offers amazing boba tea… Or so we’d heard. Tonight we decided to try a boba tea for ourselves!

We ordered the strawberry shortcake boba tea and oooooh wow was it delicious!

Boba Tea

Me + Tea

I loved the little tapioca balls throughout the tea. Toward the end of the drink, I had a blast trying to suck every last one up the straw. Playing with your food = a-okay! 😉

For our dinner, Ryan and I shared a couple rolls of sushi and a sweet and sour chicken noodle bowl.


Sweet & Sour Chicken

I’ve never been a big sweet and sour chicken person, but really liked this bowl! Ryan said  sweet and sour chicken is the dish he’d always order whenever his family would get Chinese. Apparently he’s quite the sweet and sour chicken connoisseur and assured me that Bento’s sweet and sour chicken bowl was legit. Yum.

My Date

It felt so good to enjoy yummy food away from an atmosphere filled with boxes!

After dinner we walked next door to Mochi, the frozen yogurt place we discovered last Friday.

I selected half taro (a sweet/tart flavor) and half chocolate soft serve with sprinkles, Reese’s peanut butter cups, coconut and Reese’s pieces.

My Dessert

I really think that I could live on soft serve if it was nutritionally balanced to do so.

What is your favorite dessert?

Ice cream, frozen yogurt and soft serve are hands down my favorite desserts (but I won’t object if you want to throw some cookies and brownies in there for “toppings” 😉 ).

  1. Aww what a fun date night. Congrats on getting everything moved! My favorite dessert is chips 🙂 haha any kind will do.

  2. You and Ryan definitely deserve a sushi date AND fro-yo after moving boxes all day! Way to accomplish your goal! 🙂

    I am also a big fan of frozen yogurt and low-fat ice cream. However, it must have rainbow sprinkles…that’s a requirement! 😉

  3. Hi girl,

    Sounds like you and Ryan had a very nice date! I love how you guys always get a sweet something after dinner.. that happens to be ice cream usually (froyo) mmm!

  4. Bento Cafe and Mochi was my choice for lunch today! Too funny…the triple s’s are my fav (sushi and soft serve) haha

  5. I might be one of the only people in the world who doesn’t care for sushi, I’ve tried many times. The bowl looks yummy though.

    My favorite dessert is ice cream with crushed toppings, yum.

  11. julie! that sushi looks DEELISHHH….what kind of rolls are those that look like they don’t have any rice?? I’m always looking to try new kinds of sushi, but have never seen anything like those on a menu.

    Thanks girl.. and good luck with the cleaning!!!

    • aren’t they neat!? at bento they’re called “kawaii” rolls. i’ve actually requested other sushi places to make rolls like that & they almost always can! they’re so tasty too… i really don’t miss the rice!
