Birthday Weekend Wrap-up
I opted out of having a party this year – we’re in the middle of remodeling (yay, good-bye carpet!) but not quite done yet, so I’m not ready to have a group of people over, so the Mister treated me to a decadent weekend of dinners instead.
We started at Kome on Friday night. The camembert tempura with honey is such a treat! I left my memory card at home, so no pictures. Whoops!
We had driven by but never stopped at the Elizabeth Street Cafe, so we headed there on Saturday night. Highlights for me were the fried spring rolls (so far my favorite in Austin) and the pork bahn mi. I love how they have gingham trays holding the sauces, and their pretty plastic cups were nice too. Someone had also delivered flowers from the local Houston florist delivery.
To end the night we went dancing at Kick Butt Coffee, who hosts the monthly fusion dance where I met my North European could-be sister, Anna.
For Sunday Brunch (my “official” birthday meal) the Mister and I headed to Pappadeaux’s Seafood Kitchen that pretty much held us over for dinner. They sent us home with our cheesecake to go since our meal was so huge! Look at that doggie bag!
