I like many things about my apartment — it’s inexpensive for San Francisco, it’s located right on a train line that stops two blocks from my office, it’s well-lit and spacious. But maybe best of all is the fact that it’s situated just a couple of blocks from one of my favorite Japanese restaurants, Goemon. The staff is great, the selection is excellent, and the food ranges from very good to the mind-blowing awesomeness I experienced a few nights ago.
But I think my new favorite thing about Goemon is the list of weekly specials located at the front of the restaurant. Have a look and see if you can figure out why.
Yeah, I did a double-take, too. Apparently the secret to Goemon’s excellence is that a whole lot of love goes into its preparation. And they’re not afraid to talk about it.

Hmmm, two blocks from Ziff-Davis, two blocks from a restaurant called Goemon… this would be easier if I had a picture…
At least now I understand where it comes from.
Your site has started playing nice with Bloglines lately. Did you already update? Because if so, nice job.
Oh man, I was just thinking of going to Goemon tonight too, seeing how I missed out on ChouChou this morning. Now I really regret not going. I love it when cows fuck.
Awesome, more info for my list of Things I Didn’t Need to Know About My Coworkers.
How do they know which cow was involved in which side of that proposal?
marty, just check the may archives…
all your weirdo man-stalking dreams can some true.
How did it taste?
Beats me, I had the fish. Which were made entirely without copulation.
“Yeah I’m a little confused too. How do I… y’know… with the tail and all?”
“I’m not your first am I? I mean, I-I lay my eggs and leave and you release your fertiliser.”
You don’t pay a fish to stay, you pay her to lay her eggs and leave.
I don’t know what that means.
I’m both repulsed and intrigued at the same time. Regardless, the attitude of the employee who writes (crafts?) the weekly specials is excellent.
“Kobe-beef teriyaki x temp (?)
tempura. (shrimp ??vege??)
snak (?) river-farms tender beef
japanese-kobe-cow fucked (??) american cow
That’s udderly ridiculous.
That’s dinner and a show.
Nothing gets pasture keen eye, and that’s no bull.
Goemon, eh? I have a chinese restaurant in my town which also features a particular character: http://superpageshosting.com/kim-laicom/nss-folder/pictures/kim_lai_logo.jpg
Yes, it’s tough to see, but that is Crayon Shin-chan.
Sadly, it’s not named after the Mystical Ninja of video game fame but rather his inspiration, Goemon Ishikawa. Which means it’s possibly the only restaurant in the world whose menus feature a large drawing of a man being boiled to death. Tasty!
SOYLENT SUSHI IS PEOPLE! IT’S PEEEEEOPLE!!!
I really need to explore more of SF. Apparently I’m missing out.
Work Time Fun? What?
Good thing it’s not named after Goemon Ishikawa XIII, or I’d have to make a “this is unworthy of my blade” joke.
So where’s the restaraunt named Ebisumaru?
So where’s the restaurant named I Really Miss Retronauts?
Bovine lesbians? Then again, it is San Francisco.
