During a recent late-lunch run, the cashier at Kabuki Sushi told me, “See you tomorrow! You’re here every day!” I immediately thought “Now she knows she has me. I’m Reek to her Ramsay Bolton.” Only without the torturous relationship, of course. But she was right, I was basically at this spot near the Convention Center every day. And with all of the restrictions in town, I’ll take small victories where I can find them - which for me means biting into a fresh avocado peanut roll and pouring heaps of ginger dressing on their house salad. I don’t know if it’s the wasabi that makes me tear up when eating it, or if it’s the comfort of a good meal, but each bite keeps me coming back for more, literally.
