Today I had a free birthday meal at Benihana, on 56th off of 6th. It was totally worth what I paid---Nothing. The salad tasted like it had just come out of a freezer. The soup tasted microwaved. The chicken and shrimp tempera...tasted the same. The edamame was covered in salt...oh, and the sushi...the sushi tasted fine. I would definately have had more that if I had known it was the only good thing on the menu. Although Benihana specializes in the personal steam table experience, I wasn't convinced that I would have enjoyed the food.
I also just got my CUNY Hunter Alumni ID. Good for using their computer lab and other services, just like a student. YAY!!! And...it has the same photo as my student photo...AAAAAAAnnnd the way it sits in my wallet, one can't tell if I am a student or not. Score!
In a few hours, I will be meeting up with my cousin at Swift, an Irish Pub/Restaurant. Double Score.
