Bowl ‘n Roll is a WINNER

I told you I would check it out and I did. Several times now. So much so, I’m having trouble trying any other place. As Danielle would say: ‘Why would I go eat anywhere else, when I make it better?!’ I have to agree.

The menu items are all under $5 and delectable. You want Japanese udon noodle soup? Check. Craving BBQ brisket sliders? Check. Lamb satay? Falafel (the best)! Each day of the week features a cultural foodie special: Monday – American, Tuesday – European, Wednesday – Asian, etc you get the idea. And so does the cook; we don’t want to eat the same thing every night (unless it’s cabbage for me).

I lament the name change, though. The stories of ‘Shahrazad’ make up One Thousand and One Nights. You should go read it. I’m going to ask Danielle why it was chosen as the name for the restaurant.

Little Tokyo, Barkely Square, Bellingham

My little girlfriend and I went to eat at Little Tokyo in Barkley Village this evening. We know another 5 year old girl who devours the teriyaki chicken on skewers. That was as good as any recommendation for us.

If you could have seen the 5 year olds face after she began eating her teriyaki skewered chicken, you would have seen a little bit of heaven. And then she started to dig into MY plate. I don’t know where she learned her table manners.

We sucked down our miso soup; it was perfect. She also asked for some cucumber sushi. Did she share? What do you think? I stole some when she wasn’t looking or she would have dug her chopsticks into my hand. It was good fresh food.

I ordered the special chicken teriyaki. It came with tempura, gyozo, salad, white rice and dipping sauces. What a marvelous meal. Everything tasty, not salty. The teriyaki flavors were well balanced. A pleasure.

I managed to save some for Daddy sharing. She was happy to oblige. He’s the world, don’t you know.
