One fine afternoon while doing my duty as the head waitress, I headed to the kitchen so as to manage the food orders since lunchtime was rush hour. Four gentlemen and one lady all of the Japanese origin entered the hotel and ordered their foods. Since it was lunchtime, I figured out that all of them would order for sushi. One of them ordered for boiled spinach rolls that were seasoned with light soy sauce sprinkled with bonito flakes. .The other two gentlemen ordered for deep fried soft shell crab to be served with an authentic ponzu dip. .
