Last night, I was sitting at home watching TV (hehe no, I don’t really get out much on Friday nights!), and there was a 20/20 special discussing 10 common myths. One of these such myths is that you shouldn’t eat at restaurants on Mondays, because they might be using food that had been bought the past Friday to use up leftovers, rather than using food freshly bought that day. Although the food shouldn’t kill you, you probably aren’t getting your dollar’s worth. The special also discussed sushi restaurants. Although the special says you shouldn’t be too “concerned about the quality of Monday fish in restaurants in such coastal cities as San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, New York — that have “fish-centric” menus.” (such as sushi restaurants), it warns you against half-priced sushi, because it probably isn’t of the greatest quality. Of course hearing about sushi always makes my ears perk up, and I thought it might be something interesting to discuss with all of my wonderful SushiDay readers.
So what do you think about this? Do you go out to eat on Mondays? Have you ever gone to a restaurant with a half-price sushi special? If so, have you noticed any lack of quality or even gotten sick from it? What about restaurant size… would you be more willing to trust a large, popular restaurant or a smaller, family owned sushi bar? I really do want to hear from all of you, so leave your thoughts in the comments, or if you are to shy to comment you can contact me and we can communicate by e-mail instead. 🙂
