I was going through the take-out menus in my desk this morning to see if there was anything interesting to eat today or if I would have the leftover tomato and cucumber salad and "Tradition-brand" instant noodle soup (chicken flavor) that I brought.
I found a fabulous looking menu for "Echo Sushi,' with a 15% discount coupon for pickup orders and awesome prices. There was sashimi, an la carte sushi menu plus special rolls, salads, udon noodles, Bento boxes - it just looked amazing.
"Why haven't I ever been to Echo Sushi?" I thought. "This place looks fabulous!" My mind raced as I thought of all the tasty hamachis and tamagos spread out before me. A tofu salad! An Enoki beef roll! Spicy seafood udon!
"Where is this place? I'm calling in an order!"
Oh. It's at 2036 Yonge Street...in Toronto. I ate there last September when I was visiting a customer, and I must have thrown the menu in my desk, which I am now ready to crawl and curl up under due to the crushing unavailability of so much great food.
"Hey, it's only 3 and a half hours! If I leave right now I can be home by 9 pm...."
