Although the menu is pretty standard it is more about the experience and the fun of group dining! Just think how jealous your classmates would be if you showed up for classes with a backpack like that? Thanks Nicki! I bet they could hook you up with broccoli - they have it in the kitchen... at least I know Tokyo Dining has it and they must share the kitchen. You would be a hoot to eat at TE with!!! I can definitely understand being burned out on teppan/Japanese already - you can only have so much before needing more variety! I'm sure you have some adorable photos of your DD with that special moment. Hi Barb! No worries about the cocktail suggestion... it surprised me that I didn't taste more than the peach. It wasn't bad! At least I'm still racking up the points!! Thanks Rosey! Here's another Michael moment on vacation... I really have to keep an eye on him! Yikes! Sorry San Angel wasn't so good. What did you order, I want to avoid it in the future! I'm in the mood for some good Japanese about now as well! Hi there Joh!!!! Are you a veggie hater? Ok, I wouldn't make you eat your veggies but you would have to drink your entire cocktail.. oh, wait, that's no problem. Are you bringing your girls and Daniel (Gary of course) for your big family trip? How exciting and definitely a great thing to look forward to planning! I'll let Michael know that perhaps a purple backpack would go better with his outfit! Hi Quin! I noticed that the swordfish steak was thick too so I think you are right - it might be hard to cook. He was definitely good with the experience - heck, he got to eat with me and Em!! Hi Rachel! There is some amount of smoking with the cooking so it could be a little scary. However, the chefs make the experience fun and I've seen some really cater to the kids and do special things for them. One day it may be the perfect time to try it.
