    A used HP Zbook 15 G2. Expected no HDD and 8GB RAM but scored a 24GB RAM unit with a Huawei LTE module and populated HDD bay. Sweet. Now I just need a new battery for it.

    We have a couple of those conveyor belt sushi places around here, which is fun and all, but the quality isn't there. We had a party of six, so $50 per isn't bad for doing it up right. Best offering that's not always on the menu was the kama sushi. It's yellowtail/hamachi collar broiled for those who do not know. Meat is super tender around the cartilage. Also, spending a couple extra dollars for real wasabi and not the typical stuff they always give, which is not wasabi at all, but horseradish. :vbthumbsup:

    My wife and I recently had dinner for two at a Japanese restaurant where they served real wasabi. Was the first time I'd ever had it and could immediately appreciate the difference. I was taken aback by the sushi offerings, which for me, totally eclipsed the $120 piece of Japanese A5 Wagyu I had. I think it was ~$360 w/gratuity. :confused:

    Good thing you don't have to cook the sushi, otherwise it would be another 300...

    Never had Wagyu or anything similar. I'd like to have the experience to know, but I now value wise I doubt it will meet my exceptions. Even Prime grade, I rarely buy. I'm usually very happy with the high end of Choice.

    Foam sauce, etc.. Fancy sushi you had there. Uni looks really good, especially the one on top of the cucumber. You can tell the other on the ball is not quite as good as it's just starting to break down and become a little runny.

    Yeah, but they have to catch 'em too. :D

    Sushi freshness: those are stock photos of what we had. I don't recall any issues with it that particular night, but I'm probably not experienced enough to tell.

    I'm with you; choice is just fine by me. I've heard quite a bit about authentic Wagyu, and understand that most of the exotic Japanese beef in the States isn't really authentic at all. Glad I took the opportunity to experience it but tbh, I can't find the value. The dish was exquisite, but that had more to do with the concept, execution, and presentation than it did the cut, IMO.
