13 Jan

Last night I finally used the Benihana $50 gift certificate that my bosses had gifted me for my birthday back in September.  This — combined with the fact that just last week I had finally finished using up my $25 gift certificate that my sister had gifted me for my birthday back in September — exemplifies how excellent I am at making food last as long as possible.  This is like how I will go grocery shopping in July (buying about $25 worth of canned soup and instant noodles) and make that last through December.

Anyway, so last night I took my roommates K, L and M out to dinner at Benihana’s with me because I was feeling especially generous (only for my roommates), and it was the most incredible food experience ever.  Teppanyaki and sushi are quite possibly the only things I like about Japan.  And those teppanyaki chefs looooooove an audience like us — we’re so friendly and we constantly cheer them on and we always finish all the food they put on our plates.  And any burned pieces they leave on the griddle.

Here was our meal:

Jumbo Shrimp

Swift Hands

Filet Mignon

As most of you probably know, Benihana gives you an amazing deal where with an entree you get mushroom onion soup, salad, shrimp appetizer, a side of rice, and grilled zucchini, mushrooms and onions.  I got FILET MIGNON. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Happy very belated birthday to me.
