It was only a week ago when Mayu and I were on the phone saying that we should reward ourselves for non-stop working workload with something nice to end the hectic year with. I’d like to think I deserve it. We jokingly suggested a dinner at Tetsuya’s – knowing that there must be no way to book a table at this last minute.
And the reservation got confirmed with her and her husband’s direct connection to Tetsuya.
On the Christmas eve, happily married Mr. & Mrs. Tama and dateless old moi – three of us had a Christmas dinner at Tetsuya’s – which was filled with excellent and perfect food to drawn ourselves in a pool of indulgence. Oh yeah, Chrismas was just another excuse to dine out. It’s been nearly two years past (!) since the last time I had visited the restaurant. Long overdue that is!
After being welcomed by Maitre d’ and bunch of staffs, we briefly met Tetsuya himself in the hallway – and we totally appreciated his generous complimentary – Champaign and wines. (of course, not to mention that was for Mayu and Mitsu and I was a freeloader though. ;p )
We all had each dish. Quite alot eh? In fact, it was about to strike midnight when we have finished. 5 hours had past just enjoying food and wines along with our conversation. I thought this was a perfect Christmas gift for myself this year for all the effort for the hard work I have performed. “The best Santa for me was myself this year.” – I thought.
But I was wrong apparently. Santa didn’t forget us, and gave us a big surprise at the end of the dinner. (we were literally astound!) I’ll just leave the details unsaid.
