Catching Up..

So I found her, and we caught up for dinner last night at Masuya (I’ve been to Masuya before, but tonight wasn’t about the food). It was great seeing her again and she was exactly how I remembered her. She’s doing well and had some exciting news for me; she’s getting married in May! The ring was absolutely gorgeous!! (especially the way that the diamond is set from the side view) and her fiancé seems like a really nice guy. She asked me to be part of the bridal party (Chinese style not i.e. not a bridesmaid), which I’m very excited about.
2006 is going to be an exciting year.

woooo... mystery girl. Awesome ring. congratulations to you and her.

hmmm Masuya looks like it's pretty much next to work for me, how's the food?

The Masuya chain of restaurants is owned by the same people who run Makoto and Musashi with these two restaurants giving off a more relxed and casual feel.

Masuya on the other hand is more restaurant like - the good thing being that it is very affordable. Entrees start at $12-16 and mains start from around $18?

The Sushi and Sashimi is standard and presentation is good. A must try is their Japanese style 'steam boat' where instead of a clear broth they use a soy bean milk as base, it's very heavy and texture is a bit like a laska soup. It looked interesting and tasted pretty good.

Suprisingly a lot of the people that frequent is Japanese, so if they are able to fill the tables with some of the biggest critics then they must be doing something right.

A must try if you haven't done so already.
