ENTERTAINING 3 SISTERS: IZAKAYA DEN

my 2 aunties from sydney and singapore were down this previous week for easter – and to celebrate the rarity of 3 sisters being in one place at one time – what better way to do that than eateateat, right? in true asian style haha=P …and of course, the daughter/niece had to come along to recommend and leech food=P

 

chin chin was the destination of choice, but thanks to ridiculous waiting times [2 hrs to get a table?! no reservation places, why u so popular-__-] it was back to trusty izakaya den. not that i minded at all:D

the sisters.

 

 

 

after ordering a large selection of dishes, entertainment of the night was provided by the really! cute jap waiter serving us – so cute in fact, that both my aunties couldn’t stop gushing=P “he’s so cute i want to take him home!” “if i was 20 i would wink at him!” “because we love youu can we order more?” [note: my aunties words, not mine! haha!]

id go back there for him alone.

…just kidding! but im sure he loved the attention….=P anyway! food was great as usual, my favourite still being the tuna tataki, although everything was rather awesome.
