Lunch with Brian

« Firefighter Appreciation Day | Primizie »

Banzai, April 9, 2009

At Banzai, Brian and I both ordered rice balls. That's a ball of rice, just like it sounds, but it's got some avocado and shrimp mixed in, and it's deep fried with a tempura batter. Brian thinks they put a little too much dill on top, but I'm okay with it. We both recommend it.

For our main dishes, I ordered the Kakiage Don, which is tempura fried vegetables over rice. Brian ordered the Katsu Don which is a pork cutlet with egg on top over rice. Mine was great, but I'd had it before and knew it would be. Brian was trying something new and decided that just because you can put an egg on something doesn't mean you should.

We heard a jazz style instrumental of Carole King's "You've Got A Friend." Our friend Robert loves to listen to smooth jazz, so every time I hear something jazzy, I ask whomever I'm with if it's smooth jazz. Brian thought it was more crap than jazz.

After that, another song played that was pretty strange. The core of it seemed to be a bunch of owls hooting. I sang along, "Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoo."

On the drive back to work, Brian fell asleep in the passenger seat while I tried out the owl hooting with songs that came on the radio. My finding was that hoo-hoo-hooing goes better with Alison Krauss songs than with Tom Petty songs.
