Food Trip Friday--Yochan's Birthday

We celebrated Yochan's (hubby) 37th birthday last December 30 minus the kids! The kids were picked up by their Grandparents and went to their grannies home to stay during the New Year celebration. The kids went 2 days ahead of us and we were left at the apartment and had a general cleaning. We're not used of getting out during the night most especially with the kids around and it's very rare that we went on an evening date 2gether ^_^We went to Akaoni, a typical yakitori restaurant (just a 30 minutes walk from our apartment) and sat at the bar/counter, infront of the grill. Not so fancy but if you're a beer/sake drinker you'll love the izakaya atmosphere. We ordered their best skewers ( negima, tsukune, kawa and some other japanese grilled chicken ) and some beer. It was served perfectly grilled, juicy and flavourful. Now I guess you're wondering where the skewers are, the bummer in me forgot the camera(T_T). Here's our dessert instead that I bought ahead from Repaco Garden that made a large increase in my waistline that day^_^

Pistachio Mousse@450 jpy--creamy and smooth, my favourite
Trou Chocolate @450 jpy--a heavenly piece covered with dark chocolate ganache, Yochan's fave.

An entry for Food Trip Friday. Chibugan na!!\(^0^)/

Belated Happy Birthday to your hubby. May he have many more blessed and abundant birthdays to come. You had such a wonderful birthday celebration at a yakitori restaurant where you had those juicy and delicious skewers and sweet and creamy desserts. Great that you really appreciate and enjoy Japanese food. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
