Teppenyaki = GOOD!

Earlier tonight, I went with my family to a Teppanyaki-style restaurant. My grandparents are visiting so we decided on that restaurant. In two days, it would've been a month since I was here! I ordered the Genji roll, which had crab meat in it (I think). I then decided to try something different on the appetizer menu. It just happens that they did have edamames (I wasn't looking that well last time)! I requested that they served it cold but later on I found out that they only served them hot.

Other then the sushi and edamames, I ordered the Teriyaki Chicken. That meal, like all other meals, came with onion soup, house salad, cooked vegetables, a couple small cooked shrimp, a mound of fried rice, and the main course.

Unfortunately, the chef wasn't as talkative as the one we had last time. Oh well.....I guess the food made it well worth the trip.

For dessert, I had a scoop of green tea ice cream. I joked around and said that it was wasabi-flavored ice cream. I mean, the texture and color of the ice cream is the same!

One other thing about the edamames. For the first one I tried, I didn't eat it right. I ate it pod and all. However, on the second one, I peeled the pod open and ate the soy beans inside. To me, they kind of look like lima beans! From our dinner, we brought home the ones that we didn't finish. I guess I will be able to have them cold after all!

It's now time for me to read my homework and head to bed. Oyasumi!

o_O YOU ATE THE POD?!?! XD *dies laughing*

(>.> I hope you don't get sick from that... >.< If so, I'm SOOO sorry!! >_<)

Ew... o.o I'm sure that wasn't that tastey, eh? ^^; heh. :x Sorry about that -- I should have mentioned that you do only eat the pods inside. :\ They just tend to serve them IN the pod. :P And darn the hot edamame's! >.< They're MUCH better cold. <.<

So yeah, they'll taste good if you just take them out of the fridge. They're a nice Japanese-style snack. :3 I can only find frozen ones, which are still ok, but still... nothing better than fresh. :3

You don't have to peel the pod... just pop it out and then trash the outter shell. And yes, they look like lima beans, but they taste a million times better! XD hehe. It's better to eat them with a little salt on them... and rub some sesame oil on them if you have any. :3 JUST A LITTLE, though... don't douse them. XD hehe.

It sounds like you liked them? O.o They're my favorite. X3 Only when they're crisp though. When they're mushy, it's bleh. :P

LOL, I like that, 'you ate the pod'.

What the heck is a edamame? I love terriyaki chicken by the way, don't ever wave it in front of me. :P

An edamame is a green soy bean. I think that honchi told me that it is served cold and it is a Japanese snack.

@_@ Sounds like something that sounds gross but might actually be good.
