Nothing says "I love you" like having your initials spelled out in giant, steaming piles of fried rice at a hibachi restaurant. Well, that is, unless it ends up spelling something else...
Thanks to a photo on Reddit (shown below), we can see how the seemingly romantic and delicious display of affection could go horribly wrong (or should we say right?). It all depends on what you're into. But seriously, how did they not think this out?
Perhaps this hibachi grill chef is anal when it comes to fried rice preparation. Or maybe it was the dubious work of a real-life Haru the Hibachi Chef. We may never know.
Anyway, whoever AN and AL are, we feel for you and support your passionate message.
