BUT one of my dear friends Amanda was coming in from California! When she comes in town, we try to get together for dinner & let her pick the place! She picked Ichiban's on the Hibachi. I agreed to go. And guess what? I LOVED IT!!! So delicious! Now...i did try a sushi & i didn't love it. Wasn't as bad as last time (years ago) & i did not gag (though i nearly did!). I only tried it because she said it had avocado & crabmeat in it & i like that. Some sauces i tasted weren't so good! And they insisted i put the entire thing in my mouth - i think that is more of what makes me want to gag than the actual taste of the sushi! Anyway - the sushi was not terrible, but i didn't love it.
Trying sushi for the 2nd time (1st time lots of years ago!)
HOWEVER!!! The Hibachi was DELICIOUS! They gave us salad & soup first. I loved the salad, hated the soup. I ordered the chicken & shrimp hibachi & it was good! I normally don't even like the fried rice but i loved this! And the shrimp & chicken was grilled - good for you - & SO GOOD. I think i could eat it everyday! The veggies they gave you were also grilled & they were DELISH! Perfect! MMMMMM! Brad is also not a big eater of these cuisines but i told him we'll have to go there sometime & he agreed. I know he'd like it too! Thank you, Amanda, for choosing Ichiban's! You know i never would have gone there in any other circumstance! =P
the hibachi dude.
Now, let me tell you about these wonderful girlfriends of mine. I just love them. & I miss them. Three of us (me, Ali & Amanda) were roomies at one time. At that time, we were also good friends with Amy & Becca. (& Jenn! But she couldn't come eat because she was in Disney! So saddy!). Most of us used to go to church together. We also were involved in Springhouse, a nearby home for troubled teen girls - we went there every other week (for YEARS) & did a Bible study with those girls. We also were just very good friends back then & hung out a lot. Years have passed. Ali's gotten married (& is now expecting her first baby! A boy!). I got married. Amanda moved to California!! etc etc! I do not see these girls all the time, but LOVE getting together with them & we make sure that happens as much as possible! So anyway - some pics of us from our hibachi night!

It was a great night! I can't wait to get together again!!
What beautiful girls you all are! Looks like tons of fun!ReplyDelete
I'm not a sushi eater and I had a girls night recently at a sushi place. I got teriyaki chicken, but my friends "forced" me to taste a California roll....icky!!!! I don't like fish at all, so that's the worst part.
I have never tried sushi and I never will. Promise!!ReplyDelete
We have an Ichiban nearby. I went once and it definitely was yummy!!
