June 22: Hibachi

In attendance: Solids, Zeus, Moxie, Mycroft, Ace

Fun. The chef we had was the best in the joint, and definitely put on a good show. There was a moment or two that Moxie and I were in danger of being decapitated, but we took it in stride.

It wasn't the best example of a Japanese steak house, but definitely worth going for most of us. Lots of steak and shrimp were enjoyed. Most everyone really liked the fried rice, including Solids who is arguably the most picky of all the Movers. (Mover profiles are coming soon, so you will get to know a bit more about what I mean with Solids.)

Two issues though...

1. The people next to us were annoying and ignorant, not as bad as they could have been... but yours truly was the one who had to sit next to them. They ordered sashimi but then couldn't pronounce the word. Then didn't like it at all... No way in hell I wanted to pick off their food, but it pained me to watch two slices of decent tuna go toward the garbage pile. Mycroft had threated to kill these people, but restrained himself.

2. Zeus, our token vegetarian, had to order from the kitchen since otherwise her food would be cooked right in with the meat and such on the mail grill in front of us... Unfortunately the chef scooped up some beansprouts (thank you for the clarification, Moxie) from the grill, well seasoned with shrimp, beef, and chicken, and then dumped it on her plate ontop of her food. Luckily she was mostly done at this point, but there was a groan heard from most of the Movers as soon as it happened.

Go back, yes. But maybe not for awhile.


Ready to Move.

[Since this is being posted much later, I cannot remember what specifically was enjoyed, will record this in the future.]

Hibachi is the name of this place. And not to nitpick, but it was the beansprouts he gave (A).

Fine fine. Editing.
