Mifune Restaurant 1737 Post Street San Francisco, CA I should have seen the warning signs.
The word "Deluxe" in its title.
The $12.99 price tag.
Identical serving vessels being shuttled to families of four.
Yet, I went right ahead and ordered the Deluxe Nabe all for myself – even when the menu clearly stated it would be served in an iron pot. Really? An iron pot? I felt compelled to order it for that reason alone.
I was given two soup bowls and two soup spoons. Ha! If I weren't such a lady, I would have dived right into the pot itself, head first.
Having two bowls actually came in handy. Contents of one bowl would cool off while contents of the other were being methodically shoveled into my mouth.
Super generous serving of udon, cooked perfectly...no gluey mess here. Shrimp. Scallops. White mystery fish. Imitation crab. Shitake mushrooms, other exotic mushrooms, and various greens. All topped with a single shrimp tempura.
The next morning I weighed two pounds heavier. It had to be the sodium in the soy sauce, right? Right...
