Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

PM's Japanese Culture Day Task #4

Door 2: Japanese Culture Day - Task 4: If you like Japanese food, treat yourself to a favorite dish.


I'm not nearly talented a cook as I'd need to be to make my favorite Japanese dishes. So I talked my best friend into having lunch at Kyoto Japanese Steakhouse on Lake Ray Hubbard. Since she loves their hibachi, I didn't have to twist her arm. :D


We ordered the Crunch Roll, which has shrimp tempura and crab. It's topped with a pile of tempura crispies, so you can't really see the rolls. My friend absolutely will not eat raw fish, so our sushi roll selection is always a little limited. 


Then we had the hibachi lunch - I got the filet mignon, and my friend got the shrimp. The pictures really don't do it justice. The best part is, I'll get two more meals out of it, because the servings are so enormous.
