Yesterday I had a great day because a big friend, invited me to eat for my birthday. Yes, despite of my birthday was tuesday, all the malls and place is closed this day for holiday, so is difficult for me celebrate this day properly. This big friend is Andres Corella of the black label's blog and he was invited other friends for that day but for compromises they couldn't to go. But... it was a good moment, in a good place and with good company too. It's the first time of all my life that somebody invites me for my birthday and this for me it's so special, the place was good selected, because I love Japan, and the japanese food too. It's part of my roots because I'm a good percentage Asian...my mother's father was Chinese and I'm proud of have Asian blood like part of me.
This place was Matsuei, the place like you can to see in the photo is cozy from first time, with an excellent decoration and ambientation.
