Went to my first Hibachi last night.

Was awesome, I don't know why or how I've never been to one before. It wasn't super expensive, and I know I've spent more money on worse food before. Overall, it was a blast, and our chef was awesome.

For those that don't know what a Hibachi is, It's where you gather around a flat top grill, a chef prepares your food in front of you while doing fun tricks and keeping you entertained. You get to see him make fried rice, cook your meal, cook the veggies and so forth as well as making a volcano out of an onion, breaking eggs in half with throwing them away in one swift move of his spatula and so forth. It's real fun and I suggest you give it a go. I read about them a while ago, and it seemed like their profession is more of an art than anything else. It takes years to hone your skill and I assume you get more awesome as time goes on.

Either way, these Samurai of the Stove are admirable and I'll definitely go back.

  11. I'm a fan of japanese cuisine. I mean first there was iron chef, which has got to be the best cooking show ever. But then when the sushi fad swept the western world i happily joined the craze, how could i refuse to friends and family inviting me to go grab some sushi?

    I'm actually wuite jealous of you though. I have never been to a hibachi
