An occasional series in which Kim tries to get dinner.

I’m introducing this series because, if you are like me, you order food more than you should. I’m a bit ashamed to say that my refrigerator often contains more liquids than solids. But delivery in this city can be frustrating. Many a night I’ve had to call back several times and for always the same answer: two minutes. So I am going to start keeping track of my delivery experiences so you, dear reader, can hopefully avoid those nights where all you want to do is go to bed, but you are still waiting on that goddamn pizza.

Last night I wanted sushi. I called Sushi Go Round and ordered a house salad with ginger dressing ($5) and a dragon roll ($12). The woman taking my order said there was a $20 minimum. (My menu must be outdated because it says $15.) I threw in a creamy mussel roll ($6.50). She said it would be 45 minutes. While I was annoyed at myself for ordering more food than I needed and spending $25.85 before tip for my dinner for one, I no longer cared when my food arrived 15 minutes later. A new record! Plus, everything was delicious. I especially recommend the creamy mussel roll.
