So we got back from our Family
Vacation Trip yesterday and our back yard was the postage-stamp-sized (well, maybe business-envelope-sized) version of a jungle. We had been afraid that the heat and little rain would kill our half-way-there grass, but instead we came back to trees and weeds growing all over the lawn. My husband, who had driven both legs from Maine and then Massachusetts, immediately settled in to weeding and re-seeding and mowing and watering for a solid three four hours while I slowly unpacked and entertained the kids and pondered how to avoid cooking dinner. The solution came with a clever reward for both his work and my laziness: Sushi!
We usually order from Nori for take-out, but the last couple of Spicy Mexican rolls have been disappointing, so I thought I’d go back to trying Toro. I ordered my husband’s usual sushi choices, and I added on a Veggie Garden for me. Now, the menu doesn’t list what’s in the Veggie Garden, but it is under “Vegetable Cut Roll” section, so I assumed it was all vegetables. What we got was a nice assortment (the Mexican wasn’t any better than Nori’s) of yellowtail, tuna, eel, and what you see pictured above. It’s the Garden State – tempura salmon and asparagus. I didn’t notice the error until a good ten minutes after the delivery, and my go-to solution is just to deal with it (and pay the extra $3 in the price difference). I wouldn’t suggest the Garden State, by the way. Stick with the spicy tunas and yellowtail scallions.
I know the way to avoid this is to keep the delivery person there while I check the order, but does anyone actually do that? What is the best way to deal with it? Chalk it up to the payment for a luxurious privilege (which I do think Sushi delivery is), or let the restaurant know immediately? I mean, are they really going to bring me a $6 roll, and do I want it 30 minutes after we’ve started eating?
What would you do?
