Aya Sushi sustained us during our days in Olympia. I am a sushi aficionado;
I was hooked during university. Aya Sushi is the best sushi I’ve had since Lalaland!
I reserved a page in our business sketchbook because we ate there every night
they were open while working on the Senate offices.
Taino humbly made dish after dish for us
(gads I apologize if I am spelling his name wrong).
On our birthdays made a salmon sumthin’ in a martini glass on the house.
Dishes came with beautiful orchids.
We put them on the dashboard of our Mountaineer and they lasted a week before dying.
Did you know they are to EAT?
Taino said they are not decoration — but told us too late!
On top of all that, the surroundings are colorful and beautiful.
Hand-made paper lanterns overhead at the bar (where we sat) and
Japanese brush paintings of waves, very traditional.
Located in a mall, you wouldn’t suspect a great restaurant is behind that neon sign.
Super Washington was our favorite; Taino seared salmon till it was crunchy,
on top of a crab-cucumber-sumthin else roll! Second was an amazing seaweed salad. YUM YUM YUM spicy yellowtail hamachi fried soft shell crab roll unagi . . .
Lamy Safari pen with Noodlers Lexington Grey (also with brush); Daniel Smith + Qor + Sennelier watercolors in my Stillman & Birn Delta book.
Oops lest I forget, my favorite part, the company of my husband. Talking with pen in hand.
I guess I did sketch on site. . .
