Well somebody had to do it ;).
What made me start thinking about making the switch, was last night as I was brushing Maddie's hair she said she had been craving Teppanyaki's rice. So, that led me to googling Japanese places in our area. . .and then I started thinking about Teppan Edo.
I did find that Houston has two Bennihanas, but neither are in a location I'd want to drive to (distance/crowds). But there is a small Japanese fushion place around the corner from my house - I've never really given it thought - but the reviews say it is a dinner w/a show. May be worth checking out some day soon.
That's what Robbie wants too-the rice-he LOVES it. I like it all-the rice, the veggies, the meat (usually chix for me) and the show. Hummm...now I am craving some of that food. LOL
We have a nice place in a nearby town that we like to stop at every once in awhile. They do a really good job and the food is yummy. I'd try out the place by your house-I bet it's good!
The place here is expesive too so we have learned to go at lunch-much less expensive.
The place we go is called Fuji. I have been to a Shogun when we lived in NC-it was good.
Yea, if your family isn't into that type of food I wouldn't bother. Like you said, it's $$ and why waste the money.
The Hu Hot place sounds good to me. There is a place like that on the ship. It's supposed to be very busy so we hope to hit it while most people are in port.
I've not seen a menu for the place by us - I've googled them, but no website to speak of. But usually places like this have some kind of seafood, so I am covered there (usually). The girls eat the rice, chicken, noodles - so they are good. john. . well, john will eat just about anything.
Course, we should have Teppanyaki on our POA cruise at least once. They are starting to open up excursions on that cruise. I booked our mudbugs - since that is a have to. I may go ahead and book the sea horse discovery too - as that is important. HA! Sorry, this is cruise related, not Disney - but talking about Japanese food led to Teppanyaki, which steered me to the POA cruise. My bad.
Cuz I put it on the wrong thread. POA = Pride of America. It's the ship we are cruising Hawaii on. I should have mentioned it on the cruising thread so it would have some context behind it.
Nah, you were gone over the summer and how often do I change my mind?
We are staying at Aulani. I was debating a whole week at Aulani or a few days there + a cruise. The latter plan won out so that we could do a few things on the other islands that I couldn't find on Oahu.
That's sweet. What is more costly, Europe or Hawaii? You could always do your big anniversary at whichever one is better priced. Both would be memrorable and romatic. Although, I have to say - Europe appeals to me most. Maybe cause I've never been???
I met my first husband at a bar. I was 17 and had snuck in with other friends. Anyhow, he asked me to dance, etc. Later he was telling me how he wanted to take me to Corpus Christi - to show me what a real beach looked like. Show off. I did have fun saying - well, I grew up in California, Florida and Hawaii, is Corpus really that much better. Sigh. With a line like that I still somehow married him. Blech.
Isn't this cute? It's a countdown chain.
That is really cute! There are some very clever people out there.
