San Francisco: Day 4: Cindy’s Narnia Secret

Today I went to Japan town three different times. Yes. You read right… THREE TIMES!  Why you may ask? The first time, we went to Fatlace, a clothing store that @MikeSakata loves. We then went into the city and ran some errands and some how ended up in Japantown- again. We drove around sight-seeing for a bit to avoid the evening traffic, picked up Maria for dinner- which happened to be in Japantown. This dinner has to be one of the best dinner deals in town, and it is all thanks to Cindy Chen!

Mike has been telling me for a while that he wanted me to meet his friend Cindy. The first time we came to San Francisco, (a year ago) we tried to visit her at work, but it was bad timing and we just missed her. Earlier on our trip, we went to her workplace again, but her store was closed! FINALLY, tonight we all made plans to meet up for dinner.

Cindy took us to Kui Shin Bo, a cute little Japanese Restaurant that has GREAT food with AMAZING value! The menu is made up of and the BEST part of this deal is you can pick any three dish items all for $12.00! CAUTION: This is called Cindy’s Narnia Secret because Cindy is BFF with the chef.

If you do not eat with the oh-so-famous Cindy, this deal may not really exist! It is like the Chronicles of Narnia, this restaurant might really be just an abandoned empty space, but when you hang with Cindy, it comes alive with amazing deals on Japanese food!  Then again, who knows, he might offer this deal to anyone that asks, but I would not take that risk!
