I journeyed west this weekend to visit a couple of old college buds that I hadn’t seen in many years, and was soon confronted with managing their personal preferences (and inclination toward chains) versus my desire to explore the food in the area.
I run into this obstacle from time to time and to be perfectly honest if I had a friend visiting from 2000 miles away I’d try to be as accommodating as possible, even if it meant putting my own dining preferences to the side.
Ande based on some of the meals you encountered I have a better understanding of why WA legalized weed.[;)]
i couldn’t have said it better myself. If I’m only meeting friends for one meal, I’ll try to be accommodating however if It’s more than one, I’ll be telling them where we are going.
I’ve lived in Seattle, and I’ve been back several times, as recently as 2014 and I can tell you that Seattle has nothing on Los Angeles when it comes to Teriyaki, or any Asian or Asian-American cuisine for that matter.
