Do you have a favorite restaurant that is the first place you visit when you get money in the bank? Whenever I'm dying for payday and need a light at the end of the tunnel, I look forward to hitting up Yasu Sushi Bistro.

Usually, I go there to meet up with a friend who's also a big fan of Yasu. We actually first became acquainted at the sushi bar there, and totally hit it off as likeminded Japanophiles.
