I have been fairly dull and anti-social this week. Since I skipped karaoke at Legend’s on Wednesday and have been doing a whole lot of nothing at home, I decided that I needed to get away from home and work and familiar territory.
If I can’t go to Japan, at least I can go to a Japanese restaurant.
I brought myself to Kikugawa and they gave me a table in their (surprisingly warm) atrium. The sushi really hit the spot and a couple glasses of plum wine helped me to relax. I got the customary platter since I couldn’t decide what to order — I let the chef decide for me. I was so stuffed! I’m also not sure what I was eating… just a few different kinds of fish and a shrimp, I think. One of the pieces was either a scallop or a giant clam. The platter came with a bowl of miso soup and hot tea (though I turned down the tea since I was busy drinking wine).
It was early and the restaurant was very quiet, but I think I would visit again. I saw a neon sign that read “Kiku Karaoke”… Do they do karaoke, too? I’d sing there and then eat some sea urchin! Why not?
It was cute and funny and sort of like going to France. Also, Lucas was working and he hooked me up with a free ticket. Awesome!
I got home around 9:30pm, took a shower, read a chapter from Magical Thinking, then went to bed. I am feeling so much better today than I felt yesterday.
