Babyface vs Today. Dann mache ich halt auch bei der #10yearschallenge mit! Auf dem ersten Bild war ich 19, auf dem zweiten noch 28 - gehe ab nächstem Monat steil auf die 30 zu, ha! Ich finde ja, die 10 Jahre haben mir gut getan, sowohl optisch, als auch erfahrungsmäßig, wobei 8 davon nicht viel gebracht haben, erst in den letzten 2 ist ordentlich was passiert bei mir. Aber so ist das halt - man wird älter, man wird weiser. Manchmal auch nicht, ist auch okay. Hauptsache, man gibt sich Mühe. Man darf auch Fehler machen und scheitern, denn nur so lernt man. Und das Wichtigste: niemals aufgeben. ♥️

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Mein letzter Drink 2018 - der „Last Word“. Dry Gin, Chartreuse Verte, Maraschino und Limettensaft. Mein Geheimtipp (jetzt nicht mehr geheim, höhö): noch 3 Dash Absinth mit rein, dann ist das ein absolut fantastischer Cocktail. 💚 #lastword #lastwordcocktail #ginthusiast

New year - same me! Still single (and happy!), still a friend of underwear and no-make-up selfies (cause „duh!“), still in love with great drinks (even though it‘s just a Gin Tonic in my hand). Let‘s hope that 2019 is gonna be as awesome as we all expect it to be! ♥️

New year - same me!...

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Heute war der letzte Arbeitstag des Jahres und weil es ja fast schon Silvester ist, hab‘ ich mich für ordentlich Glitzer entschieden. Mein Silvester wird ja gemütlich daheim ablaufen. Das ist somit mein letzter „Work Look“ 2018 und ich bin gespannt, was ich euch nächstes Jahr so präsentiere, wenn ich im @kurvenhaus_hamburg arbeite. 😉 Und Zeit für einen Friseurtermin wird‘s auch (stimmt‘s, @sha_di___ ? 🙈♥️). Der Look ist übrigens bis auf die Boots und den BH komplett vom Kurvenhaus oder Crispy (Blazer von Zizzi, Top von Zizzi und Jeans von Levi‘s). ✌🏻 #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

I really appreciate a great sushi delivery service. And unfortunately, to be honest, this one is not the one for me yet because we had to get the box ourselves. That’s because they’re located in the south and our home is not in their delivery area. Of course, takeaway is also a good option, since I actually prefer eating casually at home, watching my current favorite series and not having to look like I was ready for the red carpet (oh, the drama!), but this means I’m still searching for the sushi delivery service of my dreams.
By now, we’ve tried a lot but usually end up picking up our food ourselves because our favorite restaurants either have no delivery service (Sushi Lô) or it’s just way too expensive (Raw like Sushi) and in the end cheaper to just drive there and get it. Sounds pretty pragmatic but that’s us – living the casual way. ;)

Last year, we tried one of Steffen Henssler’s restaurants here in Hamburg – the sushi restaurant “Ono” (which actually needs a review up here, guess next time I’ll have to take a few pictures!). The second one is “Henssler & Henssler” and nearby the new delivery service “restaurant” (it’s not an actual restaurant, just a reception and the kitchen). I actually wanted to get my food driven up here to my door, but unfortunately they don’t serve all of Hamburg yet. Normally, we wouldn’t drive so far to get our sushi, but I was way too curious, so we made an exception. You can actually pre-order your food for takeaway on their website, but that didn’t work – so we made a call (and had to wait quite a bit – actually, the service is good but veeeery slow, so don’t try to hurry!) and ordered by phone. And this is what we got…

The sushi is seriously delivered in this high-quality paper box, which even has a magnetic clasp. It kind of feels like you’re receiving a gift (actually, opening the box – for me – was like unwrapping a present because I love what’s inside!). Even the wasabi and gari come in extra paper-wrapped plastic boxes, such as the chopsticks. Okay – I don’t want to talk about all the waste that’s being produced here because I’m kind of amazed by the whole appearance, it’s definitely luxurious (such as the price), but – for me – I don’t need the plastic boxes to be wrapped in branded paper, and chopsticks don’t need a box. ;) But I don’t want to say that I didn’t like this (don’t know whether to think it’s cool or if I should be ashamed because I liked this whole luxe thing…)…

We had two different rolls – the “Buddha Rolls” and “Unagi Rolls”, plus three different nigiris (because I love to try new things): the “New Style Salmon Nigiri” (with nut butter, wakame, chives and tobiko), the “New Style Dry Aged Beef Nigiri” (with sour soya sauce and truffle oil – and apparently something that reminded me of panko) and, something that I have to order at every new sushi restaurant, an Unagi Nigiri (because unagi is my favorite!).

I totally fell for the “Buddha Rolls” – I never really liked truffle (oil), but there were two food moments that changed my mind. Once in a salad dressing that made me eat 7 little glasses of salad (it was served in glasses, fancy-schmancy) at an event – that was so embarrassing, but I really loved it and I guess they were actually happy that someone ate them all so they didn’t have to throw them away after the day. ;) And the second time → in Brazil at the “Mee”, where they served scallop sashimi with fresh black truffle. They were SO good that when I saw that these “Buddha Rolls” included hotate (scallops) and truffle-ponzu (and butter fish, topped with buttered panko!), I had to get them, no matter what. ;) And I wasn’t disappointed! These rolls get my “EAT THEM!” badge, so if you want to order something, that’s the first thing on your list! ;)

As an eel lover, I was pretty boring and also chose the “Unagi Rolls”, with eel, avocado, cucumber and panko-eel (crunch, crunch!). Actually nothing special, but absolutely delicious and my husband even preferred these rolls, so there’s nothing wrong about them.

Definitely something more interesting: the “New Style Dry Aged Beef Nigiri” – beef nigiri is actually something that kind of disgusts me just by the mere sound of it. Meat on sushi, but then, when I read the description, my curiosity was aroused (and there was truffle oil, I surrender!). To be honest: it wasn’t my favorite, just because I think I’m not the one to like meat on her sushi (even though – cooked! – meat and rice is nothing bad, I think it’s just something my mind doesn’t like together). But it was a very nice experience and not bad at all!
The other two nigiris were not very noteworthy – I didn’t get the “New Style” thing about the salmon nigiri (maybe the wakame…) and the unagi nigiri was a simple unagi nigiri (but a good one!). Nothing special, but still delicious!

All in all, this was absolutely delicious, just like at the “Ono” – Steffen Henssler never fails to make some amazing sushi (especially the special makis at the “Ono”, there are some freaky mixtures from time to time and they’re definitely worth it – I still cry because I never saw that one maki again, with chopped watermelon on top and crab meat and loup de mer inside, they were heavenly!). It’s too bad that the delivery service stops right in front of our house (almost), we’re just that tiny one district too far away and therefore out of their delivery area. I really hope that they consider putting us inside, I’d be a happy customer! ;)
Of course, the prices are a bit higher, but I’d say you get some good value for your money and the quality and freshness of the ingredients is impeccable.

    Uhhhhhääähhhhh, krankheitsbedingt ist mein letzter Hamburgbesuch vor Weihnachten leider ausgefallen und damit auch der geplante Besuch im “Ono”. Der Heißhunger auf sein Essen ist geblieben und dann kommt dieser Post und ich würde am liebsten in meinen Laptop beißen….Ich bin ja auch ein Verpackungs Victim….aber das ist vielleicht doch ne Spur drüber ;-)

        Das klingt echt super und sieht noch besser aus, ich muss unbedingt auch mal ins Henssler-Restaurant! Ich war im Herbst in Japan (da gabs übrigens Cheeseburger-Sushi :D), leider mag jetzt “deutsches” Sushi nicht mehr so gut gefallen, wie vorher… ^^

            Haha, DAS klingt ja mal wirklich abgefahren. Der gute Henssler hatte im “Ono” mal welches mit Barbecue-Sauce und diesem scharfen Pulver (das vom Döner) drauf, da waren Aal und kleine Maiskölbchen (die eingelegten) drin. Das war auch ziemlich fancy und interessant. Das Einzige, womit man mich jagen kann, ist süßes Sushi, also wenn das dann mit Milchreis gemacht ist und mit irgendwelchen Marmeladen oder so gefüllt ist. Bäh. Aber Cheeseburger-Sushi möchte ich jetzt glatt auch mal probieren! ;)

          What do you think?
