Wasabi By Request

Old Town Sushi Bar By Wasabi on Urbanspoon

Misty was in the office yesterday for an informational training session on electric vehicles so we decided to have lunch together. We hadn’t seen each other in a while so it was nice to have the opportunity to catch up. Misty selected Wasabi, a restaurant that we both love. It’s been a while since I’d been there so I was happy about her choice. I always welcome any excuse to eat at Wasabi.

Brian loves Wasabi also and would have met us at the restaurant, but he had to meet Benjamin Franklin at the new house to get an estimate on a hydro backup sump pump install. Had he known that they wouldn’t come until much later in the afternoon, he would have joined us. Instead, he spent the entire day waiting for them to call him, which they didn’t even do until they were at our house.

Brian said the BF rep waited in our driveway for five minutes before calling him. Brian was a little perturbed by this because he specifically asked for 30 minutes of lead time. They were supposed to call him right before they headed to the house at the latest. Brian had to haul butt to the house to meet the guy.

Anyway, back to lunch. I ordered a bento box. I’d seen other people order it, and it seemed like a good value. Here’s what you get for a little over $8 — miso soup, salad (which I normally don’t eat because I’m not a fan of ginger dressing; yet, surprisingly, I like the version they use at Wasabi), choice of meat (I got tonkatsu pork), tempura vegetables, steamed rice, 4 pieces of California roll, and half an orange.

Fwd: no subject

Misty got the ninja roll, which she regretted soon after ordering. She forgot that she had tried it before and only found it to be okay. It wasn’t her favorite. I didn’t get to try it, but I thought it was expensive (almost $14) for the portion of food that you got.

Misty had never had mochi ice cream before and I was craving it so I ordered some for us to share. I got the mango flavor, which is my favorite. I ended up eating most of it, but Misty said she liked it.

Anyway, Misty and I paid about the same amount for lunch, but I got way more food than she did plus dessert. If you’ve never tried the bento box lunches at Wasabi, you have to. It’s great particularly if you’re hungry. Not so great if you’ve got your heart set on their specialty sushi. Just depends on what you’re in the mood for, I guess.
