The experience Today is Mina’s afternoon to spend with her grandparents and it’s always a conundrum as to eating with or without her. At 5 o’clock, Benji started foraging for food in the kitchen requesting bagels, so i alerted Papa and said we’d better get going.  Luckily, Benji, my little food connoisseur was ready to go [...]

The experience Ogre told me that he was in the mood for soup tonight.  I suggested Mr. Shabu Shabu and he thought it sounded like a pretty good idea.  Mina was not with us as she was with Oma and Grandpoo.  So, it was just us and the Benj.  We’ve never been here before and [...]

The experience As dinnertime rolled around, Benji was sleeping peacefully at Lala’s house, so I told Mina that we’d go and get Papa and eat dinner without him and pick him up later.  We headed back to the house to get Ogre and as we drove down our street, we tried to figure out what’s [...]

No Mommy at Masami

In: 3 stars, Dallas, Japanese, Richardson, Sushi

The experience Mommy was working this evening so it was dinner time with Papa and the kids.  Mina decided she wanted Japanese and I had no idea where to go.  I was headed to Richardson in the general direction of some Asian restaurants when I recalled a restaurant off of Belt Line.  So we pulled [...]

The experience Me and the kids would be eating without Grace this evening, so I invited Oma and Grandpoo.  We left their house without real direction and I suggested the Japan House that I had been eyeballing for a bit.  Grandpoo cautiously agreed and we were parking a few minutes later.  We all headed in [...]

The experience Well, this pregnancy is going to be expensive.  One of the only meals I can tolerate and almost enjoy is sushi.  I think it’s because they are small portions.  Anyway, I told Ogre that I was in the mood for sushi and he just headed off down 75.  I wasn’t sure if he [...]

The experience Our initial plan was to head to Greek Isle so Ogre could redeem himself somewhat for the Mediterranean Cafe and Bakery fiasco the other day.  His other idea was to have sushi.  When we arrived at the restaurant, he was surprised to find that Nakamoto was right next door, a sushi joint he [...]

Geisha Steak and Sushi

In: 3 stars, Dinner, Japanese, Lunch, Plano

The experience Today, I decided I wanted some salad with ginger miso dressing.  We had to think about where I could get that and not be a place we’ve already eaten.  Initially, we were going to avoid going to a teppan restaurant, but in the end, decided it would be okay to do that despite [...]

The experience Ogre had a meeting across town and Mina was not feeling well today, so I ended up leaving Mina at my parents’ house while Benji and I had a date out together.  Benji (thankfully!) was in a super good mood and chatted and sang all the way to the restaurant.  Ogre has now [...]

Sushi Rock and Sushi Rolls

In: 3 stars, Japanese, Plano, Sushi

The experience Ogre is still out of town.  I figured that since I took Benji out on a date yesterday, it was time for a mother/daughter date with my little Mina.  I gave her some well directed options for dinner when I picked her up.  Either Soup or Salads or sushi for dinner.  She told [...]

We will be headed out to a different restaurant every single day to provide ourselves (and you) with some entertainment and good information about DFW area restaurants. We hope you will visit frequently and use our experiences to create some fun dining experiences of your own! Watch out, DFW, the Phipps family is going out to eat!
