Birthday celebration at Kabuki, Brisbane CBD
So, the Mr surprised me and took me to Kabuki for my birthday! I was certainly surprised by his choice and the clue he gave me prior was 'entertainment'. Lol, teppanyakki did not cross my mind at all.
Even on a weekday, Kabuki was busy with customers. Luckily the Mr made a booking and we were allocated to one of the tables. Shortly enough, we were asked to order from the set menu, prices ranging from $56.50 to $98.50. Ahem... the Mr pampered me that night and he said we should go for the best one, which was the 'RAN' set menu for $98.50 per person. The RAN menu consisted of sashimi, sushi, tempura prawn and vegetables and the main meat options for us were the jumbo scallops, lobster tail and Black Angus beef fillet.
So not long after, our entrees arrived. We enjoyed the fresh salmon as well as our prawn sushi. We did order additional entrees (California rolls) and gyoza while waiting for the action to start! The tempura prawns …

Brother Espresso

Brother Espresso, Bulimba
Where to get breakfast on a public holiday? After visiting MXM at his new place, we went for a search nearby and found Brother Espresso in Bulimba, who still caters on a public holiday. Awesome!
The cafe is attached to a shop that I assume belongs to the same owner, that sells bread, and good quality produce. I was in need of a good cuppa of coffee and quickly ordered my usual flat white and long black for MXM. 
The coffee was smooth. I like it! It has been a while since I last had a good quality coffee.

Brother's Espresso menu is simple and I ordered the green eggs and ham, and MXM had the brekkie burger. 
The food in Brothers Espresso certainly looked simple and easy to assemble. I enjoyed my pesto scrambled eggs with the toast, the flavour of the pesto quite distinct and flavourful. It was quite nice.
Well, I think the highlight for me was their coffee. Lol, maybe because I have been deprived of caffeine for some time... :)
