On last saturday, me and the whole family went to Poke Sushi. My sister picked this place out of many since she has been dreaming to eat a lot of sushi (and I mean A LOT).
Going to sushi restaurant is not an ordinary treat in the family. We often go to seafood restaurants where we can eat kepiting saus padang, udang rebus, kerang tauco, ikan bangkok bakar, etc. Nonetheless, sushi is seafood too right?
Fyi, many of us don’t like sushi, especially the raw sashimi. That includes my brother in law, two of my sisters, my mom, and my sister’s boyfriend – Suii. He is even worse, he does not even eat seafood. Kesian abis, karena setiap kali pergi ama kita2.. seafood lagi seafood lagi.. He can only stare and pesen satu ayam goreng + nasi, sementara yang lain berpesta seafood.
Anyway, in Poke sushi (baca: po – ke .. kalo baca pok berarti colok.. jadi ‘sushi colok’ heheh), we ordered sashimi platter. Me, Buncis, Rilla (my youngest sister), and father love to eat sashimi. Dulu sih awal2, pengen coba2 dan biar gaya kayak orang2 jepang. The platter is not big, enough for all four of us.
Tapi ternyata.. all the others also tried and they loved it. So we ordered the second platter. It was finished in seconds (literally). A platter worth of Rp.150,000 is gone in less than 60 seconds. Gile!! We almost ordered a third one. Luckily I remind them… “Err.. I am paying, not much money.. please stop..” (Begging with a little bit of tear drops – coz of the abundant wasabi)
We also ordered lots of sushi: dragon sushi, virgin rising sushi, teriyaki sushi, etc. And all of them are yummy. We eat sushi like there is no tomorrow. 3 plates come to our table, only last for seconds. Itu sushi ga lama2 deh nongkrong di piring. Our tummies are the purpose of their existence.
These barbaric family (pasti itu yang dipikiran mbak2 waitresses nya) eventually stopped.
After paying the bill (there goes my limit of the credit card), we then realized ..
‘Loh kalo ditotal2.. mendingan makan all you can eatnya ya?’, said my sister
‘Iya.. cuma Rp.110,000 all you can eat, termasuk sashimi.’ said me
Soothingly my father said ‘Pasti ga include sashimi de.. Sashimi aja satu platter udah berapa? Pe-go-ceng. Si Rilla aja bisa makan 2 platter sendiri.’ (Implicitly saying: apalagi si rich, bisa 4 platter kali..)
Ternyata.. oh ternyataa.. sashimi termasuk!!! Yup, belum kalo ada kartu credit yang lagi offering discounts..
My family went home.. Ga kecewa.. Nope! Kecewa tidak boleh ada di kamus keluarga.
Together, we have one thing in our mind, we will be back! Hehehe.. Then, the resto better make sure they have enough sashimi to feed all of us.
ps: Thanks for the presents guys.. Including the V450 Logitech, the cool shoes, the nicest laptop bag, and a greeny funky t-shirt.. Yippeee! *Bragging mode ^^
