 their ‘signature dish’ —  live deep fried crab with salt and pepper, as well as their ginger & scallions crab yuuum…haven’t had R&G in quite some time, so it was definitely a nice treat.  then if was off to karaoke to sing my heart out at YamaSho.  Probably only SW and one other person there knew beforehand I’m a closet karaoke fanatic 😛  lol

What else could make my bday more special?

My first time there and it was pretty good.  There were actually a few items that I’ve never had before, so I thought it was pretty interesting:

One thought on “bday festivities

  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! i shouldn’t be reading your food blog this early in the morning – i’m already drooling, and my stomach is growling! mmm, hamachi & toro… and elephant… and giraffe… and its abnormally long black tongue. is sushi kei something i should try? it’s so close to me! more importantly: where is the critique and pics from the dinner?!
