Sorg Gets Cultured: Japanese Food in Pittsburgh

Some may know, I love eating and experiencing new places. The world famous Carnegie Deli in NYC. The original Texas Hots in Wellsville, NY. Quaker Steak and Lube in Western PA. This evening, we visited the Little Tokyo Bistro in the Southside of Pittsburgh. Now, I’ve had suchi before. But this was the brunch bar the next day after getting drunk at the christmas party at Nemecolin a few years ago. Not the greatest of experience, all things considered.

So we invaded…

I was attempting to master the art of the chop sticks, which didn’t go so well at first…

Now, I started getting the hang of it by the time my delectable Dragon Roll showed up. But then a splinter stabbed me in the roof of the mouth. Japanese culture fail. Back to my American fork. I may blame Ja for sabotaging the chop sticks…

I was astounded by the American-themed foods, such as the Pittsburgh Roll and Philly Roll. I attempted the latter, thanks to Will, and the cream cheese was a nice mixture. I now presume the Pittsburgh Roll has coleslaw and fries piled on it…

But the greatest was when the staff learned it was Will’s birthday, the cause for our togetherness. The music started blasting happy birthday, and Will got a pineapple on fire…on…fire….

But all kidding aside, it was a great night with a group of friends I haven’t had a chance to just hang out with for a while. And I’m now hooked on Japanese food.

A great thank you to the restaurant, as we kept them rocking about an hour after their closing time, and they were very kind, regardless with our large, unwieldy group.
