Daaaaaaaaaaaaamn! My bad ya'll!! I've been gone way too long; I didn't realize I haven't blogged in a month. Ok I am making a promise now to keep my blog updated on all my "Wednesday Dinners". I hope you all are doing well and are staying COOL in this weather!!! Well it’s been to long so let the "Wednesday Dinner" begin. Ironically the last time I blogged I had dinner with Tiff, Pooh and Moe and in this blogged I had dinner with them again. All of them except for Moe, she stood us up. Pooh, Tiff and I decided to do a little happy hour, I suggested Gyu-Kaku ( I have been there before but as of late I had been hearing about how great their happy hour was, so I suggested we give it a try. So we all met and it was ON!!! Tiff and I were the first to arrive, Pooh came a little while after (she was stuck in traffic) and Moe's ass just didn't show up (I mean she called and said she was on her way but that was about it). Gyu-Kaku has quite a few locations in California and we decided to do the one in Torrance since it was kind of in the middle for everyone. We arrived at 5:30pm and as soon as our bottoms touched the seats it was time to order drinks!! This happy hour is INSANE with drinks and food starting at $3 that’s ridiculous, so it was only right that we indulge. I was soooo HUNGRY and so was Tiff, we started off with the:

Spicy Tuna Volcano
Fired Cheese Wonton
Fried Chicken Karaage

It was been my mission to get Tiff to try sushi and that day was my lucky day because she tried it and she liked it!!!!! It didn't take long for the food to come out and when it did I was in heaven. I was thrown off by the Fried Chicken Karaage but come to find out it was just fried chicken thigh meat and it wasn't too bad. The only complaint I will make is that Gyu-Kaku doesn't have many dipping sauces, they serve the same spicy sauce with everything, and I mean EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!! When Pooh arrived she ordered a drink and she ordered the Fried Chicken Karaage as well. Over the food and drinks we all just mainly caught up with the events in each others lives, I have to give a shout out to Tiff on getting her 1st client!!! Tiff has been practicing doing hair and will be attending cosmetology school this summer. So CONGRATS on your 1st of many clients!!!!!!!!!! Talking with Pooh & Tiff is hilarious we all get each others sense of humor and that is so rare these days, they listen and they give the best advice!!!! On the 2nd go round of ordering I ordered:

Tuna Tartar
Philly Crunch

I totally forgot to mention that Gyu-Kaku has happy hour from 5pm-6:30pm and from 9pm-Last Call, crazy, right!!!!!!!!!! So we continued to eat, drink, talk and laugh. By the time I looked at my watch it was 8pm, then I checked it again and it was 10:45pm. WOAH, we had been there for a LONG time so long my ass was hurting from sitting (hahaha). I think that was the longest I had ever sat in a restaurant. All in all dinner with my girls was GREAT, even though we kicked Moe out the group (hahaha). If you are not familiar with Gyu-Kaku get familiar hands down a great spot!!! The food was great the thing I love about Gyu-Kaku is that their sushi is not your typical sushi and the food is very good. I totally enjoyed myself and will be going back, the total for dinner was about $52 which was about $17.33333 each which isn’t that bad.
