Glorious Cuisine From Around the World

Thursday, May 03, 2007
Last night was perhaps the pinnacle of my sushi eating prowess. Somehow, I managed to stuff 60+ pieces of the stuff into my stomach.

It was a grotesque, vile display of power eating on the part of all contestants: Tom, Megan, Khalid, Marwan, Dan, and myself. We went through some 14 plates of sushi (about 20 pieces per plate); Tom ordered the last one amidst a mouthful of wasabi when we clearly didn't need it.

Megan perhaps put in the best effort, clearing some 50 pieces.

Two things were made clear: 1. Cairo sushi isn't half-bad, and 2. Cairo sushi leaves you in a daze.

We stumbled out of the restaurant like we had just drank the sushi equivalent of sake. I was in a daze (and still am) and managed to hit my head on a sign while walking across the 6th of October bridge. How ridiculous.

The sushi also sucked the water right out of me. I spent the whole night waking up every 30 minutes to get a glass of water.
