I went to this place while back for a friends gallery opening. It was small, but not like uncomfortable small. The music was really nice, the staff was friendly and very 'hipster' like but in a cool way, lol. There are updated takes on some traditional japanese foods like sushi. They added meat in one of them. Very tasty! 

They have some really nice drink selections there and they have bubble tea there too! Yumm....i love bubble tea, lol! 

Very cool place to hang at!! Hope you like it!

I had a post about convention dates and I dont think it was the right place to put it so I deleted it and will post it in my personal journal later. In the meantime, being at Rangetsu after MegaCon for the dolfie (sp?) contest on friday made me miss the fact that there arent any neat little places to eat at around here that arent all on I drive. I think that these are stil places that people know, but they are all really cool, so if you arent familiar with them you should check them out!

Now Ive never really seen the place, but a friend of mine spoke about it in casual conversation so I thought I would look it up. The place doesnt look half bad! They've go some pretty affordable prices and I think their full menu is online. They have a selection of bento lunches, oh and noodles! Not ramen, but udon and soba. (Im not sure if that helps you mere im so sorry, lol) The best place would still be rangestu for the ramen noodles and I think they sell it depending on the season. 

They have a few vegetarian dishes so there is something for everyone! You can even fax your order in and pick it up later! The site also says something about hosting business parties, but I would hope that its not just limited to that. Maybe we can all have a get together there sometime?

Anywhoo, check the place out! The place looks good!!!

I've been trying to find more information on it, but I guess I can't because it hasent opened yet. But the place is called Oy-shee (like 'Oishii' meaning delicious in japanese) and its going to be on the corner of east colonial and goldenrod. They're going to be where the Pizza Hut red roof used to be, right next to the Burger  King. I will keep trying to find more information on it like when the grand opening is or something

Sorry its just really been THAT hard to find cool stuff to do that fits for this community...oh well, more reason to look!!!

Man, I hat the fact that I KNOW there are tons of neat little japanese-esque places to see here in Orlando, but now that Im trying to make an honest effort to look, nothing is coming up!!! I hate being empty handed! But I did remember a little nifty restaurant on Aloma that Dee Jay and I went to and we enjoyed it mucho!

Its a nice comfortably quiet place with nice background music and a calming atmosphere. The food is generous, the prices arent horrible; I just have to come to terms that specialty foods like that arent going to be too cheap, lol! But like 7 to 14 bucks on average for their meals. The sushi is gooooood! Very yummy! My favorite part about the restaurant though is that there is a part in the back where the chairs and tables are set low to the ground so you can eat on your knees. For a gaijin geek like me, it makes me feel all special and yes I am the retard going "look at me! Im all japanese because I can feel my legs falling asleep while I eat! yay!!"

And I dont regret it in the slightest, LOL!

Its a nice way to end the night especially if your just coming out of a gallery opening or something (rollins is like, SUPER close to it too) You can feel all artsy, lol!!

So go! Check it out! Eat and be full and happy!

Taking suggestions for the interests, please :D Need to beef it up some.

Also, if anyone has a better name idea, or if you like the straightforwardness of this one, let me know.
