How was your Valentine's Day? Hope you had a nice day with your special someone.
Since the girls are supposed to give the guys chocolates in Japan, I did something simple and dipped some strawberries in milk chocolate (Satoshi's fave) then decorated them with some blingy sprinkles for Satoshi.
Satoshi received some giri-choco (obligation chocolates) from his female co-workers. Someone even gave him a heart shaped senbei (rice cracker).
Lunch was at Gasthaus 44. A German restaurant. I chose the housemade sausages. This came with spätzle, sauerkraut and a dollop of mashed potatoes.
I really enjoyed the sausages. The white one is eaten with a sweet mustard and you need to peel the casing off before eating it. The darker one is eaten with grainy mustard. (the darker one was juicy!)
Satoshi went with their housemade hamburger, which was a meatball that had lots of cumin in it. It smelled wonderful.
After lunch, Satoshi went to meet some of his German classmates for a study session, so I killed some time and headed to Takamura Wine.
They also do coffee, so I had a cup of Mandheling.
Then we met up at Utsubo Park, where we saw this huge black cat. Bigger than my niece, I swear that it was a baby puma!
The weather was sunny but the wind was really icy.
Dinner was an assortment of things from the department food floor with wine.
Hope you have a nice week!
