I had a fun night at IchiBan in Mesa (I like to call it itchy buns..) for Kim’s birthday. Steve got together quite a few people for the teppanyaki party around the grill. I haven’t been here since my saki bomber days in college. I had some sushi, tempura and beef. The food was pretty good, but only one waitress for the whole restaurant. She was definitely running all over the place like crazy. But we all had a good time and the show was fun.
Instinct told me to unfriend the hot plate (teppan) and stick with the knife (rolls and nigiris). Although I was not stuffed, I felt the amount was just right and little after-effects ensued.
