Habachi!

Our friends Nick and Angie B. invited our family to join theirs for dinner at a new restaurant in town and I am SO glad they did. We went to a Japanese restaurant called Fuji Grill. Oh my YUM! and oh my FUN! This was a new experience for our family.

It's always fun to hang out with Nick, Angie, and Olivia. We decided that it was Olivia and Jackson's first date. ;) Olivia likes to say that she's going to marry Jackson and they hug and kiss each other every time they are together. It's really too cute. :) Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me, so I had to use my phone camera to get some pretty worthless, bad, fuzzy pictures. Angie was smart enough to have hers. I should try to get some from her.


(Jackson is the blur next to fuzzy Olivia.)

Our family ordered Hibachi meals: chicken (Reag, Jackson & I), steak, (Greg & Kobe) and filet mignon (Jillie) with grilled veggies, fried rice, miso soup, and salad. It was so fun to have our food cooked right there in front of us. (Although now that I know how much oil, butter, and eggs they use, I should probably never eat it again.) It was especially funny to watch Nick, Greg, and Kobe trying to catch pieces of food in their mouths that our chef tossed at them. :) Jackson found the whole thing a little frightening, especially every time there was a burst of flames on the grill. The rest of us enjoyed the show and the food.


We found it such a neat experience it will definitely be a place to go again with friends and family! Thanks for the great night guys!

I remember going to a place like that as a kid and was just amazed. I haven't gone again since a date in high school. I'm not keen on eggs or shrimp and think maybe this would anxiety producing for me now...what in the world?

"Habachi" reminds me of the little grill that Dad used to have. Funny. It looks quite adventerous! Did everyone enjoy their food? I could see it being a huge waste of money for my family... Who knows though, after this coming trip, we may have had more people trying new things. I can always hope. It looks like it was fun. You are so lucky to have kids that will try things!

I have always wanted to go to a place like that. Now that I have your recommendation I think we will have to find a reason to go.

I went to a place like that in Utah. I tell you Buffalo is the happening place to be!!! With all these fancy new places! Maybe it's a place we'll have to try when we come back to visit?!

That sounds so good! I wish my kids would be more adventurous eaters. I want to try it if I ever make it out that way!
