  1. I’ve been wondering about this place for years – sounds like I better finally check it out, if for no other reason than those honey shrimp!

    Yes! I have enticed everyone to try the gigantic fried shrimp with the tasty glaze! (Man, those things were good… I kind of wish I could eat some now.)

    I’m also on a mission to always try dessert when we’re out. I firmly believe in the separate-dessert-stomach theory and that there’s always room for sweets.

    I love seeing what other people have tried. Now after seeing this, I’m kicking myself for not having dessert OR the lychee drink.

    I went to shimbashi a year or two ago, and it was so good. Just haven’t had a chance to get back. You may have inspired me to!

    Hi Kathy – Oh yes. The honey shrimp is like the bestest thing ever! So tasty.

    Hi Leanne – Your influence is very great! I totally think I have a separate dessert stomach. If I believe it, it’s true, right? There’s always room for dessert (unless the desserts don’t look interesting…)

    Hi Darlene – I love seeing what other people got, too! It’s fun to see what other people choose when going to the same place (and what items you have in common).

    Hi Mary Lynne – Excellent food with a very pretty location! Hope you get a chance to revisit!
