Therefore I will start this brand new blog with my own promise of the future, might not be much, but it shall be called, "THE EMPTY PLATES!"
I will decide how tasty the food is from a certain restaurant based on how empty the plate gets.
As of last night, my brother and sister in arms brought me to the first establishment that obtained the honor to challenge me with their food. Their name, Kiraku of Berkeley, http://www.kirakuberkeley.com/
And I, The Hungry Plate Empty-er, remembered to document it, somehow.
The first dish, Rock Shrimp Tempura, that looks exactly like pineapple shrimp balls from Chinese restaurants. However, it tastes nothing like them Chinese pineapple shrimp balls because the Rock Shrimp Tempura didn't have pineapples in it, it had Rock Shrimp in it, and it was tasty. It was so tasty, that I forgot to take pictures. Sadly, the awesome idea of this all-natural, completely-original blog idea didn't hit me until the third dish.
The second dish ordered was the fresh roll. It was mediocre, but in Asian standards, mediocre is FAILURE and DISAPPOINTMENT! Asians don't start with A for no reason, the A is a grade, not a letter.
I wasn't the one that ordered the food, so I can't tell you what the names of each dishes are exactly, but I could tell you what the name might be from my keen observations.
The third dish was "Broccoli That Was Probably Saute With Garlic on a Hot, Sizzling Cast Iron Frying Pan." Popular among my fellow brothers and sister, and I would say...the plate was EMPTIED! Yea, I should figure out a pose for this tag line.
