Today is my Birthday. I don't write about Meat Pie today.

I don't have to make a pie for myself. My girlfriend reserved restaurant, but she didn't tell which restaurant she reserved. She always likes to make a surprise.

Last my B.D, she made a big surprise. She brought me to a movie theater and she didn't say anything when I asked what movie we see...

After seeing the movie, we went back her room. Then, she said "Please stay here and don't go out my room!" I had no idea. Although I thought that we will go to a restaurant and make a nice memory, she seemed that she didn't reserve a restaurant. After I waited about 30 minutes in her room, she called me from dining room. When I was into a dining room, I saw a amazing scene.

In fact, we saw a movie "Julie and Julia". My girlfriend made "Boeuf Bourguignon" as same as Julie made in the movie. Although she got roommates' help, it was massive surprising! because she prepared it in about 30 minutes! Actually, my girlfriend prepared special dinner the day before even though she was super busy with study. It was massive surprising! And also, taste was amazing!!! 

 Today, she surprised me for the second year in a row. She reserved Maison Akira that I wanted to go. When I sat a seat, I noticed that the table setting is for four people. I had no idea again. She didn't answer when I asked who join the dinner. About 10 minutes later, my serious eaters came to our seat! 

The dinner was the one of the memorable diner in my life. Monthly menu's main theme was scottish salmon, but there is "Boeuf Bourguignon" with grilled salmon. I chose "Boeuf Bourguignon" for main dish without wondering. Dinner was beautiful and delicious!  Chef Akira was so nice too. The food he creates is integration between palatability of Japanese and French. 

I had a wonderful birthday! I want to eat "Boeuf Bourguignon" on next my birthday. 

Thank you for a great night, my friends and my girlfriend!!!

    I think so. Sometimes her opinion is alien concept that I can't imagine, but always it is beneficial.

    Thank you! Taste was sensitive, sophisticated, and absolutely brilliant! If you have a chance, please go there.
