Have you ever been to a Japanese restaurant where they cook your food in front of you? I’ve been known to be one of the pickiest eaters in the universe, so visiting this type of place this past weekend was a new experience for me! The restaurant was called Domo.
It was so fun! The chef cooked up all of our meals at our table and did a bunch of tricks with the food and his knives. The only time I have ever seen something like this was on 40 Year Old Virgin and The Office…anyone see those classic episodes? haaaah! Benihana Christmas was one of my favorite episodes! I miss Michael Scott….
I had this as one of my cheat meals this past weekend for my friend’s 30th birthday dinner. It was a blast. I got the steak and enjoyed all the side dishes that came with the dinner. My boyfriend and I also ordered a roll of sushi. Sushi is VERY knew to me too. I tried some roll that had RAW salmon in it. My boyfriend played it safe and didn’t tell me that it was raw until after we finished eating it. He knows me too well.
I was able to knock out a few of my goals by this little birthday celebration! 🙂
- #1. Go to and EAT AT an unusual restaurant (Japanese)
- #3. Try 20 new restaurants (2 out of 20 completed – Domo Restaurant)
- #4. Try 25 new foods (10 out of 25 completed – Raw Salmon!)
After a fun filled weekend, I’m back on track with my goals in mind. I have officially scheduled my first fitness photoshoot with a local magazine for Sept. 15th!
So exciting and scary at the same time!!!
That’s 26 days from today!!! My competition is 33 days away! Wow..now that’s some motivation to kick my butt into high gear and kick ass this week.
