I don't know much about the current monarchs but I often quote King Oscar II of Sweden and Norway. "I would rather have my people laugh at my economies than weep for my extravagance". He got it!

Going to my favorite restaurant this evening. It's best to arrive at "Wasabi's" at about 6pm. They have the sushi line filled to capacity and the hot foods have "turned around" at least one time.

The place is fantastic! They have a cold bar with oysters and shrimp, a soup bar with noodle and seaweed soups, A tempura bar with about six types of tempura, a hot bar with ten chafing dishes full of goodies and a sushi bar with about six types of nigiri and about 20 types of rolls.

It's an AYCE place at $18 per/person ($3 more if you have Snow Crab clusters from the hot bar).

I used to go to this place every Friday, but have cut back due to budgeting. Now I go about twice a month.

I can't wait till Friday! This will be a Tuesday Pig Out!

Timothy, I am sure I could find something I would be willing to eat. You can have my sushi though. I will pass on that.

I'll bet you could also, Addie.

The hot food is usually:

Coconut shrimp
Roast Beef
Garlic Shrimp
Frogs Legs (Big meaty ones...Yum!)
Pork Bites
Shrimp and onions
Mussels with black bean sauce
Snow Crab Clusters
Baked Fish (Salmon almost always)
Sauteed Green Beans
Freshly steamed rice is always available and they have a full bar.

mango or green tea icecream for desert.

This place is on 115 near the Avenues Mall in Jacksonville, Florida if you're ever in the area.

I just finished eating at work a whole one pound box of See's chocolate. I am now buzzing.

I used to go to those Asian AYCE joints just for the nigiri sushis. I didn't touch anything else. I always got more than my money's worth....lol...

Great selections. I'll have some of each for you tonight! The beans are sauteed in garlic and butter and are very, very good.

The garlic shrimp need more garlic, but are still yummy!

Sometimes, I dont' eat anything but the sushi. (Who'd figger?)

Thanks Tom, I will. They know me very well there. I've been there maybe 100 times or so.

The grilled scallops they make are "to kill for".

You also get a plate of grilled stuff and veggies. I always pick the shrimp and scallops with green peppers, oinions and water chestnuts.
