So we used to eat at the Hot Pot City on University every so often (it was even a tradition, for a while, to eat there after a Simbase draft), so I was a little disappointed when it went under. Then a new Japanese restaurant, Tanaka, sprang up there, and I decided that I wanted to try it to see if it was a worthy successor to HPC. When we took everyone out to dinner who had helped us to move (and thank you, everyone!), I thought this would be as good a time as any to try it.
Anyway, to say that the atmosphere inside was a little different from the old Hot Pot City would be a minor understatement -- Juliana even wondered if we were dressed well enough -- but we were all very pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the food (the latter often being difficult to get at a Japanese restaurant without paying a lot of money!) And despite all of that, the prices were less than I would have expected.
Plus, it's very near our new place. This is good.
