Date Night Overland Park

Kyoto Japanese

What do you do when the grandparents of your babe offer to babysit for 3 hours?

You say HECK YEAH and you go eat good food!

About two times a year, Ryan and I are on the same cycle. Get outta here, I’m talking about the Hibachi Cycle. We want Japanese, at the same time and we want it from Kyoto, in Overland Park. It’s always busy, but always good. The service is great, the food is your typical hibachi steakhouse food, served with ginger this and yum yum that. I always order the double meat, because who doesn’t want hibachi left overs for lunch.

Since I am pregnant, I get to order Shirley Temples with my meal and I feel for a minute as if I am back at our family NYE celebration at Fuji Japanese Steakhouse in Springfield. It’s fun and it makes me happy. Now now, you might be thinking,

"BUT WHERE IS THE BEST GORMET BURGER?" or "LAUREN, THIS IS A BLOG, TELL ME ABOUT THE CRAFT BEERS and MOMMY MOCKTAILS!"

Well, you know, I’m sure I will cover that at some point, but for now I am a pregnant woman who likes to eat what I like to eat. And I know there are some of you out there who feel the same way. All hail, “mediocre meals”.  But for real, Kyoto is good.  And there are always kids hanging out in their school dance attire, so.

And because I never post selfies. Here I am feeling pretty, pre-date!
