Happy Birthday to Chris

Today was my hubby's 28th birthday. We went for dinner tonight to a Japanese restaurant called Kiku Yama Teppanyaki Steak House . It was one of those where they cook the food on a grill right there at your table. It was so neat. The whole experience was a lot of fun.

First they bring you a hot towel to wipe your hands with. It was funny because when our waitress brought them to us we didn't know what they were for. But we are quick studys and we figured it out. To start they bring you a soup called Miso soup. It was a little interesting.....then comes garden salad with a weird dressing that I didn't really like so much. It actually looked liked minced pumpkin. lol. We also had Japanese eggrolls for an appetizer....they were pretty good. For the main course Chris and I both got a chicken and steak combo. So the cook guy comes out with his cart with all the stuff on it....meat, veggies, rice, bean sprouts and fires up the grill. He took an onion and stacked all the rings up on each other to make it look like a little volcano and then fills the middle with oil and then lights it on fire. It was cool. And off he goes cooking everything up while we watch. It was fun, totally adds to the whole dining experience and makes it totally worth your money. It was all SO SO SO good, easily the best meal out we have had since we moved to Boston a year ago. Oh and we don't know those girls in the picture, they were just sitting on the other side of our table. After dinner we of course headed to Starbucks because well where else do we ever go. lol. Chris got lots of goodies from me for his birthday.....I got him THREE shirts from Old Navy, a maglite flashlight and StarWars Battlefront for PS2.Here are a few other pictures from tonight....

Happy birthday Chris. A few days late! Glad you guys had so much fun. I've never had japanese food out before. We had a student living with us who used to cook japanese food for us. Hud had an unfortunate incident with the wasabi sauce.....
