Man, it was pretty hot and humid there for a couple of days, wasn't it? It sure does dampen your appetite. I don't know about you, but we tend to go with the tried and true when eating during weather like that. Here's places I've posted on a number of times, so we'll go the COMC (Clearing Out the Memory Card) route with this one.
Well, the Missus has been cutting down on a bunch of things and Sakura is one of those places, with a la carte ordering where She can just get a couple of small items to eat. With the recent weather I'd go with something like Zaru Soba or Tempura Zaru Soba.
While the Missus can get any number of protein items like.....
Or a number of Shioyaki or Misozuke preparations.....
And even perhaps one of the few creatures She still eats that walks on land.....

The other day, the Missus wanted to go to Buga, but not for Korean BBQ, even though She was craving some beef. Instead She went with the Yukkwe Bi Bim Bap.
So I guess She won't eat beef cooked, but will raw? Anyway, it was heavenly with a nice amount of Chojang.....very refreshing.
I went with the Bibim Naengmyun......
Of course there was panchan.......
Usually, there's no one at Buga before 5pm on weekdays, so we didn't have to be worried about all the essence of Korean BBQ. It was a nice meal.......and I didn't have Sammy and Frankie following me around the house afterwards.

Yakyudori Ramen and Yakitori:
One evening, I didn't feel like crowds.....so what the heck was I doing going to Yakyudori? Well, they don't start yakitori until 530, so if you get there early, it's easy enough to get something light, like some Natto Gohan.
And some chicken karaage......
Which on this trip was pretty good......
And slink on away as the crowds start pouring in.

House of Khan pop-up:
Candice had been trying to coordinate a dinner for us here....unfortunately, a crazy schedule, which included my trip home and other stuff prevented me from attending until the last evening of this Pakistani pop-up.
I'd usually do a full on post, but since this was the last evening......hopefully, these photos will do until perhaps we get another run or the really nice young lady Selina gets a permanent location for a restaurant. This one was located in the California Kebab location off College.
Sad to see that we were just about the only folks there to enjoy the food.
I've been to a couple of pop-ups, but usually go myself and after seeing all the folks with their posse's and busting out all this gear.....I just keep to myself and try to enjoy the food.
There you go....I hope you're having a great "hump" day!
