My precious, delicious dinner and staffs of Spice cafe celebrated my birthday !
Yesterday was my birthday.
So, but unfortunately it had heavy rainfall, still we had dinner at Oshiage 🙂
As you know, Oshiage have Tokyo Skytree and there are lots of events like limited illumination and projection Mapping because now is Christmas holiday season.
But we hurried to our restaurant far from the station in the rain.
This is the entrance of the restaurant.
That’s a curry restaurant in the renovated private Japanese house.
I took the photo when we got out of the restaurant. Fortunately, it stopped raining 🙂
Eh? You think curry is not suitable for birthday dinner ? I thought so at first, but this restaurant serve appetizer, curry and dessert as set at night. And they have good atmosphere.
Among restaurants in Tokyo this is regarded as one of the finest.
Of course, also Spice Cafe serve oyster curry now !
We ordered two portion of curry set (2500 yen per one portion) and chicken biryani (1500 yen).
Curry set have an appetizer, curry,two desserts and one drink. We can choice them from some.
At first, Walnut bread (くるみパン) came.
This bread smelled very god and soft !!! Very soft ! So tasty !
Antipasto (前菜盛り合わせ) came.
(Clockwise) potato sabzi, beets and kohlrabi salad, marinated onion, marinated carrot, onion quiche,Gorgonzola mousse and flattened barley dressed with turmeric.
Everything was good, but the gorgonzola mousse went with the bread very well !
Each foods had much spices !
This sausage contains much herb and spice !
Well, Chicken biryani (チキンビリヤニ) came.
This biryani was aromatic !
Oyster curry (かきカレー) (Limited this season, + 300 yen)
It was more spicy tomato soup than curry. Those oysters were sauted with butter.
Mutton curry (マトンカレー)
It was spicy and the taste of mutton was good.
I managed to eat them up, but I was anxious about my dessert. I was already over full !
But luckily or unluckily, it took much time to our dessert served. It took very much time.
Finally, dessert plate (デザートプレート) came ! It’s two portions ! And I was surprised and felt happy !
We ordered a honey gelato, star anise gelato, apple tart and kumquat tart. But the restaurant gave biscuit with message and pudding !
Yes, they took much time to dish it up and write the message 🙂 Such a message always make me happy 🙂
With hot tea.
Well, it almost stopped raining when we got out of the restaurant. So, we went past and to see Skytree !
My birthday dinner last year was at Cinq au pied in Makuhari-Hongo.
