It’s not every day you get to witness nearly half a million dollars being raised at lunch to fight breast cancer, but that’s exactly what happened one morning recently at the Woodlands at Memorial Hermann’s In the Pink of Health luncheon.
What an amazing group of ladies – I thoroughly enjoyed meeting them and being a part of such a worthy event.
The night before the luncheon, I got a chance to explore the restaurant scene nearby the Marriot hotel around the Waterway. I’ve been to several events at the Woodlands over the years and always enjoy the charming, relaxing setting.
Creative sushi rolls are one of my favorite meals, but since returning to Houston to work last spring, I haven’t found any I LOVE in Houston yet…until now.
I sat on the sidewalk patio – it was a beautiful evening as the sun was setting. I asked the server at Kita to bring me his favorite roll…the star of the menu. Before long the Samurai was delivered to my table…a delicious combo of white fish marinated in lime juice, perfectly peppered tuna with siracha sauce topped with a bit of garlic and green onion. The Samurai rocked!
The drink menu had plenty of choices, but I chose the lychee martini…something I’ve never tried before. The lychee martini was a nice match for the little bit of spice in the roll, and its refreshing, fragrant bouquet brought back memories from long ago of the incredible tropical scents and flavors in Hawaii.
The dinner menu offered some other entrees that looked pretty incredible too like the Kita Suzuki, a striped sea bass encrusted with macadamia nuts or the Braised Ginger Lamb Shank. Two more excuses for a return visit!
