38. Eat alone at a sit-in restaurant and be comfortable about it.  ACCOMPLISHED

I was walking around Mall of America and I had been looking around for a restaurant to eat, and I was starving. It was around 2pm and I had not eaten anything since 5am at the airport . I was at Mall of America, mall of all malls, and I wasn't going to eat some silly fast food restaurant. I was on the hunt for good food.

On the third level( there are four), I saw this sign that said ,"CRAVE" and I took a picture of it, thinking this was just some random sign. I walked a litte bit further and noticed it was a restaurant, intrigued by the name, I decided to eat there.

Not having ever eaten at this place before I told the waiter to feed what she thought was best. The food was amazing! I wish I had not formatted that stupid disk, I took pretty pictures of my food. I wanted to make you guys jealous of my food experience...*sad face*

Anyway,  I started with the ' Crave Grilled Chicken Salad',  that had chicken, leafy greens, pine nuts, goat cheese and an amazing vinaigrette. Normally, I'm not a fan of goat cheese because it tends to be grainy, but this cheese was very creamy. 

Next I had the 'Godzilla' sushi, that had spicy tuna, shrimp tempura, cream cheese, avocado, cucumber, topped with  seaweed salad, and crunchy flakes. It was SO hot spicy. I was sweating by the end of my meal. Hotter the better I always say, or at least recently. I'm acquiring a taste for spicy foods.

For a drink, I had a Ginger Pear Martini, which is OK. I will not have it again, but it was nice to try. You always have to try everything once, and I was very intrigued by the ginger. Oh, well. 

If you guys are ever in the area, you have to check out Crave @ the Mall of America. Worth the trip! The food and the service was supherb.

I didn't realize I was accomplishing one the things on my list at the time. I just kept thinking I need to eat more by myself. It's so much easier to concentrate on the food in front of me and enjoy all the flavors.

Either way, #38 is accomplished. 6 down, only 94 to go. I better get a crackalackin!
