My 29th Birthday: a Weekend of Deliciousness

My birthday was this past Saturday. Unfortunately, it rained from Friday night to Saturday night, so we couldn’t do too much outside. We went to eat at yummy places, and we went shopping and to karaoke. Today, we again ate delicious food and went shopping some more.

Saturday, we went to our local vegan restaurant, Yuya Cafe.
Yuya Daily Set

We both got the daily set for lunch. It was really yummy. The main was a flavorful mashed potato croquette.

We also tried their pancakes for dessert!

MIkan Pancakes

Teddy got the mikan (orange) pancakes.

Apple Pancakes

I got the apple pancakes.

They were very yummy, and came with sweetened red beans (adzuki), chewy rice cakes (mochi), and grape flavored granita.

We went shopping, and then headed down to the Sakae area. We had dinner at Los Tacos, which has really great margaritas. We got the guacamole for an appetizer, and I got a veggie taco and a quesadilla just like last time.

Tortilla Soup

Teddy got the tortilla soup with no chicken, and a taco. The tortilla soup tasted really fresh.

After eating, we went to karaoke!

Today, we made breakfast, then went out for my birthday cake at Regnie, a really good cake shop nearby.

Strawberry Coconut

I got the strawberry coconut cake.

Mango Koko

Teddy got the mango, coconut, chocolate, and nut cake.

They were both delicious.

Afterwards, we went shopping at the mall, and then we took the subway to Tokai-dori to check out the Brazilian store. We bought a ton of dried beans there. It was fabulous.

On the way back, we stopped at Osu Kannon to check out “the best pizza in the world”. Seriously. This Japanese chef won against Italians (and everyone else) in this contest in Italy!

Solo Pizza

We ordered the Margherita Extra STG, and the Marinara STG. We also got 2 glasses of white wine for a total of only 1800 yen! The name of the place is Solo Pizza Cesari. It is DELICIOUS!

Hope you enjoyed looking at the delectable foods!
