happy birthday em!

A month or so long lapse in blogging has left me with a serious backlog of posts! I don't know where my time goes and my intention is not to abandon this blog - it's just I can't seem to find the time. Thanks for the reminder K that I need to get back to the blogging; back at it now and hopefully will be able to keep it up. Glad to hear that I have a loyal reader such as yourself who keeps up with my food musings and rambles!

Anyway, was at Kobe Jones for Em's 30th. It was actually a surpise b'day that another girl from work had organised - about half a dozen or so people were there from work and the whole table was about 20 or so including Em's friends, family as well as partners.

For dinner, we had the Banquet Menu which had Edamame, the No. 1 Special, Sashimi Salad, Scallop Carpaccio, Chicken Karage, Beef Tataki, Crunchy Roll, Grilled Beef Tenderloin, Miso Soup & the Ama Ozen (the mixed dessert platter). Plenty of food that was matched to an equivalent amount of alcohol :P Here's a photo of the Ama Ozen which I thought was pretty cool (must be new I think) but basically there was a blue flame on the Green Tea Creme Brulee when it came to the table - making the sugar topping on the creme brulee nice and crunchy as it should be.

Happy B'day Em!
Em - can't wait till you come back from maternity leave. Miss you! Hope you had a fantastic b'day!
