I SEE YOU SEE
BLUE C SUSHI
Thanks to everyone for the good wishes to my kiddo. She received many fine presents, including a large amount of clothing, courtesy of her grandmother, she said was “SWWWEEEEET.” She
also got lots of books, some girly stuff (hair devices, mango-scented
bath products), and the only toy she asked for, Polly Pocket. Her favorite present was a digital camera from her dad, with which she took silly pictures of her sister.
It’s a tradition in our family that the person having a birthday gets to choose a restaurant for dinner that night. Tigger picked the one her friends have been raving about, Blue C Sushi.
It’s a sure sign a kid has been raised in the Pacific Northwest when she would rather eat raw fish than anything else on her birthday.
In this restaurant, plates of sushi and other Japanese foods move around the room on a conveyor belt. You sit at a bar and the food goes by in front of you. When you see something you want, you grab it. The plates are color coded by price, so when you’re all done the staff adds up your plates and charges you accordingly.
Little Bit chowed down on edamame (soy beans).
She also likes inari (sweet rice in a tofu wrapper) and chicken katsu (Japanese chicken nuggets).
Tigger’s favorite is unagi, which is a sweet bit of eel.
The staff gave Tigger a birthday card they’d all signed, though personally I think a complimentary dessert was in order.
All in all, it pays for a kid to get a year older. Almost makes me look forward to my next birthday. But not quite.
