Reunion at Torarenbo

At the planning stages, my 2 college friends and I never thought of it as a reunion, just a gathering. We occasionally meet up and have dinner together to catch up. It was always hard for us to decide where to eat. It takes at least a few emails before we decided. Fortunately I was browsing Chun's blog at the time and saw her new favourite sushi restaurant, Torarenbo. So since I haven't had sushi for a while and was craving it, I tossed the idea in the air and... well... It landed there.

So logically, I will warn you that this contains food photos, not as many, but enough to make you hungry or craving for sushi... Blame Chun for this :P

I didn't take many photos because we realized that it was actually our 10 year reunion from college. Man, if we thought about it further, we could've gone to somewhere more fancy, lol. But the food was great, though I still think it was a bit pricey. I like my sushi to be all-you-can-eat, I guess. This time I brought TakoLuka and Rider... Rider's visor doesn't fit well on TakoLuka though ^^;

Rider looks happy looking at my mango California roll
We talked quite a lot. Work, life and projects in general. My friend who has the same first name and initials as I do, were researching about Lorreta Lynn who apparently lived in Vancouver. Very interesting story that he hopes to write. Hopefully he's made some progress.

TakoRider does not approve of the Tiger Eyes roll which contains squid in it.
My other friend is working on car decals/car wrap at his work. I'm very interested in that because it's something I'd like to know more about to make an itasha. He's also looking for Christmas decorations for a Christmas card cover... Unfortunately he doesn't have any, so hopefully he's found some good ideas with what we lent him.

The other roll I ordered was the rainbow roll. Very tasty with a lot of variety.
While my work is still the same, but a little bit more progress than the last time we met. I really didn't have much personal projects aside from my blog. Sometimes I feel like I'm in my own world ^^;

Anyhoo, it was a great dinner with friends. The food is good, but my friends and I don't usually do 2 restaurant visits in a row... So maybe I'll go with another friend or my brother. There were lots of other ones I wanted to try. The parking is a bit of a challenge since it was crowded all the time. I was lucky to find one after my second run around the lot. I wonder where we'll go next time...
