| “ Ahhh...Benihana, the infamous king of the japanese counter chef restaurants. Let's face it, there's nothing really authentic or good about Benihana except when we were little and found the show entertaining. I actually was actually stuck with Mapleleafgirl in Burlingame and decided to hit Benihana just for fun awhile back...they happened to be having a special overpriced event dinner celebrating the owner Rocky visting from Japan showcasing his new sake book, "Water from Heaven". It was epic because we signed on to have mediocre food and drink with Rocky as he got pretty f$#ked up in front of everyone. It was one of those Twilight Zone dining experiences, but in reality we should leave Benihana's to the tourists coming in from indianapolis...and if you are from Indy, even you should know NOT to order the sushi, stick with the steak and lobster being flipped onto your plate.
