-Los Angeles, California, USA-

with the Family and LJY’s family

Winter Vacation in the USA, Day 13.

We’re spending our holiday in the States – first time for the boys – including Los Angeles and Orange County, Las Vegas, and Grand Canyon [cancelled] – the farthest (distance), longest (duration), and most complicated trip (itinerary) that we’ve ever taken.

DINNER

For our final dinner, we were joined by Number One Fan LJY and her two girls.

I had suggested Benihana – not for the food, but for the shenanigans that go into their teppanyaki shows – but LJY recommended Roku – for the food and the shenanigans.

Alas, our chef wasn’t much for shenanigans.  Aside from a few pyrotechnics, he didn’t do any tricks to amuse the kids, like flipping a shrimp into his own hat.

The food was fine.

House Soup (2.5): nice mushroom flavor, but greasy.

Kale Salad (3.0)

Hibachi Shrimp (2.5)

Seasonal Teppan Vegetables (2.5): a bit too buttery for my tastes.

Unfortunately, the side-by-side seating arrangement wasn’t amenable to conversation.   I don’t recall LJY and W exchanging any words throughout the meal.  The kids never spoke to each other.

Anyway, it’s always great to see LJY, no matter the circumstances.
