Then he tried asking if I wanted something (guessing some sort of roti), but neither Dru or I knew what he was on about.

But yeah, the food was excellent. Free soft serve, ftw, too.
like when i call my grandma "grandma" in public I wonder what my mailman looked like at the time

and they suck, you try to fancy up these foods you ruin them.

i went to that new italian at the spectrum, had a honey eggplant pizza with a side of veg. the veg tasted like a fruit rollup and the pizza tasted more like a dessert.
LOL, that's ridiculous. Italian food is rustic. Mexican food is cheap and accessible. They're best made at home, by some grandma/mom/some form of older woman. If I wanted high cuisine I'd do fancy French or fancy Japanese, foods that require technique and finesse.

I'm far from a food snob, I just don't trust your recommendations, lawl. But if Dru took you there and he liked it, then he must be on to something.

Yes. Would totally visit for some $300 sushi. Although I'm not so sure now what with the extra notoriety and all.

That's a really unusual given name. Literally "6" "3" "son". The "son" part is common, but the prefix isn't. The only thing I know that "rokusan" might refer to is "roku-sansei", literally 6 years of elementary + 3 years of high school.
