(Just kidding on that last part. But this IS a sake jar and shot glass.)
So Saturday we (Mom, me, Will, and two friends, Debbie and Emily) all went to the sushi restaurant. Deb and Emily had never been to said restaurant, and we were all under the impression that we were there for Japanese cooking lessons. We still don't know what these lessons entailed, because when we got there we found out that the lessons were off for that day. Probably because it was the weekend of the 4th...but we had called twice in the last two weeks to double-check and were told that it was still on.
We stayed for lunch anyway, and the manager (I assume he was a junior manager or something...?) gave us three free sushi rolls in recompense. (They were HUGE, too...at least ten slices per roll, and simply amazing. I wish they had told us what was in them...)
Y'know, for raw fish I'm still rather surprised that it doesn't taste fishy. I dunno. It's very mild in flavor.
I didn't get a picture of my plate because by the time I had remembered to take one I had already eaten much of what was there... XD But it was some kind of chicken with veggies and a slightly sweet sauce over all, with a mound of brown rice to the side. It was AMAZING.
He's also a very unhappy samurai.
(I got a picture of Will making a face similar to this, but he won't let me post it. *pouts*)
I've gotten a bit of a reputation there, because I take pictures of my food before I eat it. They find that hilarious, for some reason...but I guess that'd be like someone taking pictures of their cheeseburger before diving in. XD
(Granted, all the food here at the sushi place is much, MUCH better and prettier than a cheeseburger. But I digress.)
I couldn't tell you who the waiters were, except one was named Tony and the girl was Sylvia. I think. That's what it sounded like her name was, anyway.
And then we went to WalMart and nearly fell asleep in the aisles from eating too much food and went home and took two-hour naps to sleep it off. The end.
