Happy (Yakiniku) Friday Roundups!

Some may find the concept of having to cook your own food at a restaurant slightly ridiculous. Defeats the purpose of dining out, right? After all — you are paying to have the chef cook for you. Well, this week I decided to give the idea the benefit of the doubt and bought a Groupon for a local Japanese yakiniku restaurant.

Yakiniku translates to grilled meat and is similar to a Western BBQ. The only difference is that you’re in a restaurant with a large grilling pit in the middle of your table. You’re given bite-size pieces of meat and vegetables, prepared by the chefs — only you’re the one cooking it over real burning flames! You’re pretty much paying for the experience, and honestly, it was kind of fun. :)

So! Let’s grill on to this week’s roundups:
