Mikado

Yay for fun new restaurants! Last night we went to dinner with our new friends in the ward, James and Sarah, and a couple of their friends who just got engaged on Christmas Eve. They were fun people, and it was a great night.

James and Sarah already had plans to go to the Mikado with their friends but really wanted us to come, so we tagged along. We had never been to the Mikado (Japanese food and sushi), so we were excited to try it. I was actually worried a little bit because of how picky I am with food, and I don't like sushi. But it was a success! I got pork dumplings and what they called Asian fries, which were ginger mashed potatoes wrapped in a thin flour tortilla-like shell. They looked like fried straws. But they were delicious! And they had a spicy sauce to dip. Next time I am getting two orders of these. Nik got a crab, albacore and cream cheese roll that was fried too. I'm not sure if it is still considered sushi if it is fried, but I guess the meat was not cooked, so maybe it does. But anyway, he LOVED his choice too. Sarah got the Edamame (sp?) which I had never had before, and was pretty impressed by. It was fun to eat too.

The friends had to ditch out early so after dinner we went back James and Sarah's place and just talked for a while so Nik could update their computer.

It was a great night and we are so excited to have some new friends! We will have to go back to the Mikado soon. Anyone want to come?

hmm, I might have to try this place. I'm with you, I'm a picky eater and I've yet to try Japanese food I like. Isn't edamame amazing!? It's like candy that's good for you!

Hmm, I've never been to a Japanese restaurant. It could be fun. (Annie, we could always send David and Steve elsewhere cause I'm not sure if David would be overly excited either). ;)
