Is it weird to do this?

Eldarion | May 24, 2008 10:24 AM

I'm toying with the idea of going into Sushi Mizutani just so I can try two pieces of their sushi: their tamagoyaki and anago. It would have to be an a-la-carte order as I don't think I can justify the expenditure of a full meal course there. Thus the best I can do for now is for me to go there just so I can educate my palate on what a supremely good tamagoyaki is like, and what a supremely good anago (my favourite nigirizushi) is like.

Is it weird to do this, will I get refused or sneered at? Is there anything I can say so I can make clear my intentions of just being there to eat two items? (I don't speak Japanese apart from a few useful phrases I memorise) I was thinking to go in approaching to lunch closing time so I don't have to make a reservation just for it.

Thanks again..
