October 2010 Update: this place has changed to Rice and Beans, a Mexican eatery run by the same crew but now serving tacos, burritos, etc.
Globalization to the 2nd degree: a New Yorker and his Singapore girl got hungry in Paris and went to the sushi place run by the guy from San Fran. This isn't classic Japanese sushi but the California variety - note the stray rice grains. I tried something named OVNI: crab, tempura prawns, avocado and egg. These came together nicely when dipped in wasabi soy sauce.
The tempura shiitake mushrooms were stuffed with something. We've been debating since leaving. Her opinion: meat. My opinion: well, I don't really know, something non-meat. They were delicious, either way.
It was strangely satisfying to watch a former Buddhist munch through a beef bento box. I hope her Dad never finds his way to this site. The beef strips were tender and juicy. The sides were good as well: potato salad, pickled cucumber and cheesecake. Though unrequested, I helped the poor little thing out with her big meal. I chopsticked bite-sized fists of beef, potato salad and pickled ginger slices. She won't admit it, but I got chopstick skills "for an ang mo."
Of course, it wouldn't be Paris without a bit of nakedness. In keeping with the theme, it was Asian girl nakedness alongside some manga.
