Deja Vu

Person Passing By My Desk: What’s that you’re eating?
Brent: This? It’s a chicken teriyaki bowl from Samurai Sam’s.
P: It looks really good. Smells good, too.
B: It is. And it’s both filling and fairly inexpensive.
P: Where is Samurai Sam’s?
B: On 17th Street, near the UNL parking garage, connected to the gas station.
P: Hmm, I’ll have to try that sometime. That looks really good.

That conversation alone isn’t all that remarkable. What is sort of impressive is that I had the identical conversation three minutes apart with two different people. Then, not five minutes later, a third person walked by and commented on how good my lunch looked. She had been to Sam’s before, and seeing me eating it reminded her that she hadn’t been there in a long time.

It’s not often that a fast food restaurant’s food draws so many positive comments. When was the last time you ate at Samurai Sam’s?

Yes, it is good. The only problem is how expensive it is for a bowl of white rice and some over tenderized marinaded meat. I actually ate chicken teriyaki at the mall of americas last weekend and it was better than sam’s, but equally expensive.
