It was my birthday 😀 I am now level 31. It was also my little brother’s birthday, he turned 10.
For breakfast, I had half a pack of these cherries in chocolate.
Then my boyfriend and I went to a Japanese restaurant called YUI for lunch. We arrived about 10 minutes before they were officially open, because we messed up and looked up the opening hours for Saturday instead of Sunday. Oops. However, the waiting staff was super nice and didn’t send us back out of the door 😀
My lovely lunch date ♥
We ordered a lot of food! xD
First we shared some tempura (battered and deep-fried seafood/vegetables), which I must say is the best you can get in Tallinn as far as I am concerned. There was tempura prawns, salmon and assorted veggies with matcha and curry salt.
Then we shared these tuna-mayo maki rolls.
Prawn creamy croquettes which were oh so creamy and tasty!
I had a tonkatsu o-bentou (fried pork lunchbox meal), which had rice with more tempura, wakame salad, breaded pork cutlet and a couple of sushi bites.
Look how happy this food made me ;D
A taiyaki (fish shaped cake with sweet bean filling) with honey and ice cream. Never did I imagine I could one day eat taiyaki in Estonia. It’s like a dream come true.
Boyfriend had tofu blancmange with matcha ice-cream as a dessert.
Yui was a great. The atmosphere was lovely, the service swift and polite, and the food delicious. The tastes were so nostalgic and made me miss Japan 😦
We took a hour long walk in Kadiroru park and the seaside after lunch.
A pretty swan
Later in the evening we went bowling with my family and a bunch of my brother’s friends. This was also fun 😀
Having a celebratory drink
I had a great birthday for sure 😀
