Kicking in the New Year – Shiro-style

We took advantage of having the day off and went to Shiro for lunch today.  They don’t serve lunch during the weekend, so we don’t get to eat there all that often.  They are also expensive, so again, we don’t get to eat there that often.  Lunch is more reasonably priced, but the menu is more limited.

Soy sauce containers make excellent chairs!  The waitress didn’t know what to make of the doll, and when she brought our sushi, she told us that the soy sauce was in the doll chair.

Here is a spicy tuna roll and a spicy California roll.  Loved them both.  Hardly any wasabi, though.

Look at that miserly dollop of wasabi!  That’s barely enough for two pieces!

I like the soup containers.  They have lids, so the soup is actually hot.

Yum!  Why were there only two pieces of tofu??

Salad time.  Ugh.  I am not a huge salad fan.

The onions ended up in the little soy sauce bowl.  I always forget to ask for no onions.

Dean’s wasabi ribeye.  He didn’t seem too thrilled with it.  The veggies under the meat were very flavorful, but he is a carnivore, so he wasn’t as impressed as I was.

My chirashi!  Shiro has the best chirashi in town!  At lunchtime, it’s 12.95, and I ate almost every bit of it.  The fish was so good!

My favorite part is now the tamago.  I used to hate tamago – who in their right mind puts sugar in their omelets??  I must have gotten used to it, because now it’s one of my favorite parts of the chirashi.  So is the shrimp, crab, eel, tuna……

I had a better dining experience than Dean, but I stuck with the tried and true today.  Lunch was 40 bucks before tip.  I thought it was worth it.
