Last night Mr. K and I had a very enjoyable meal at the Ozumo sushi bar where we delighted in platters of gorgeously pristine nigiri along with some excellent izakaya dishes from the Sushi Monday menu. What is Sushi Monday? Well… I’m feeling a little reluctant to share because it was so awesome that I want to keep it all to myself, but here it is: endless sushi and select hot items served at the sushi bar on Mondays from 5 to 9pm for $30. And for those of you who have read Anthony Bourdain’s proclamation to never order fish on Mondays, please heed his advice and stay away! Leave the Sushi Monday secret eating club alone to enjoy our seafood in peace.

I wanted to share an exciting food spot in the Walnut Creek area, which has been just a little too far flung to gain the interest of the incredible food trucks that are out in force in the Bay Area supplying an array of epicurean delights to their devoted followers. I stalk them on twitter and facebook to find out where to get my next fix of good grub, but to date Bishop Ranch at San Ramon has been the farthest outpost that the cool trucks go, so I am very excited to have found a promising truck that is making the rounds out here in Coco county. A co-worker pointed this one out to me, she was driving behind them and followed them to the local Shadelands business park and was very excited to report that the Tempura Tilapia Banh Mi she had was delicious. I consulted the oracle of the interwebs to look up more information about the sited Blue Saigon Vietnamese Fusion Grill Truck, and the next day I put them in my GPS and headed out to check them out. They were easy to find in a big parking lot, and I ordered the Trio of Tacos (1 for $3/3 for $8), Shaking Beef Taco, marinated Angus steak on a corn tortilla with cherry tomatoes, romaine lettuce and miso aioli. The beef was a bit chewy but very flavorful.
