Pandas, Pancakes and Panda Cake!

False advertising: Waffles were substituted for the promised pancakes. Thanks a lot, Lil Baji and Lil-Baji-in-Law-To-Be.

Mama Bear. Or is that Papa Bear?

Mambo Two Step in Seven Steps

Step 1: The choice is clear.

Step 2: Miso soup. Delicious.

Step 3, bringing new meaning to the words "two step" (with apologies to Douglas Adams): Edamame. So far, so good. We can totally handle this.

Step 4: Seaweed salad. The true highlight of the meal.

Step 5: Shumai. Eh, who needs 'em. We restrain ourselves and only eat four of the five. Next!

Step 6a: Bonanza! At right, the highly authentic West Village roll. At left, sushi! Center, slabs of delight. To the victor go the spoils (i.e. salmon), and to Yael goes the tuna.

Step 6b: Uh oh, we forgot the main course is still to come. Panic mode! Solution: Leave everything white. (We are duly--and in a decidely un-Nipponese manner--berated for not eating the white tuna.)

Step 7: Seafood teriyaki (shrimp, salmon, and crab, oh my!). The alleged point of this meal is now beside the point. But we still find room. Because we're professionals.

See Steps 2-7 for reasons why we skipped Step 8: Tempura ice cream. (Lies! We skipped it because we had it last time and it wasn't that good.)
