|Shrimp dumplings! Not my favorite, but pretty tasty.|
|Custard buns (favorite)! Sesame balls.|
|I remember those.|
|These melons... they is not for you...|
The final day, we got up and gussied up and ran straight to the conference, arriving by eight to hear a good friend's talk. A spotted an organic coffee bar on the way and we doubled back to it during the break for much-needed breakfast. Two ham, egg and cheese bagels and some lattes later, we felt much better. I ordered an apple, orange and carrot juice that spawned raw juice cravings for weeks afterwards. I figure one can't go to California and not hit up a juice bar. For lunch we joined arms with an adjacent lab group and hopped a few blocks down to the Whole Foods. No sooner had I walked in than I noticed the massive amounts of west coast beers. A frenzy of pictures ensued.
|I don't see most of you back home...|
I have had Whole Foods sushi before in both Chicago and Boston and, may I say, it never tasted this good.
|A shrimp and a salmon roe are missing... in my belly.|
|Eel, we shared.|
|Rainbowish roll, also shared. Could I have eaten it all? Probably.|
|The perfect end to the trip.|
