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.
