every Wednesday they have a food section - it talks about trends, recipes, restaurants and all kinds of stuff.
so one day, i'm reading the paper, and they talk about this newish restaurant called Yakitori Yoshi. they've got grilled food on sticks (yakitori, hello), and other items in an izakaya style set up.
i say: "grilled food on sticks?! i'm in!"
heres some visual aids for your drooling pleasure.... my advance apologies for the blurry quality of the pictures. i'm no Lebowitz.
we also had some other items, which, in my rush to stuff my face, i forgot to take pictures of.... some of those items include fried cheese in eggroll style wrap, ramen, and probably a bunch of other stuff i forget eating. geez - we had a ton of food.
now...... for the horror story: as we're just finishing dinner, my friend is talking to me, and i notice something moving.......
i look up, and to my horror, there is a huge B-52 (for those of you who don't know what a B-52 is, it is local slang for BIG ASS ROACH) sauntering into our room. i calmly say...... *OHMYGODWHATTHEFUCK!* (sarcasm, yes), and point it out. we all are literally backed into a corner, and feebly yelling for our waiter to come and take care of it. yes. all 4 of us adults, that are a hundred times bigger than this roach, we all squirmed in the corner trying to get the hell away from it.
i was considering putting a picture of a roach here, but my INTENSE ROACH PHOBIA just wouldn't let me. i tried, and nearly vomited. i hate roaches.
now - it could have come from outside, accidentally. OR, it could be the result of a less than clean establishment. i cannot know for sure. what i can say is, the food here is just "ok", and not spectacular. you can try it, just to see what you think, but just pick wisely b/c the dishes here are hit or miss. also, if you're not paying attention, it could get expensive (per person, we paid about $40 each - YIKES).
