20th Birthday Kobe Beef Dinner!

Hello, everyone! I am almost at the end of my study abroad in Japan. The sixth week of my program just happened to coincide with my birthday. I must admit that I was a bit distraught prior to coming to Japan about the idea of having to spend my birthday in a foreign country with no friends nor family. However, I have definitely made some great friends in my class. 

My 20th birthday is one of the best birthdays I have experienced to date. In addition to three different cakes on three separate occasions, I also took a birthday trip to the hot springs with my host family, my mom and grandma surprised me with a visit, I received nice presents, and—most importantly—I was with great company.

Sorry that this introduction is a bit wordy, but thank you to those who have read this far! This blog post is just a small portion of my birthday. Per usual, people usually ask what you want to do or where you want to eat for your birthday. I have been in Kobe for 6 weeks and still have not tried the world-renowned Kobe Beef, so you can easily guess my answer. 

My host family + real family ate at Kobe Meriken Park Oriental Hotel. 

The view from our table. 

Dinner was teppanyaki-style with the chef cooking in front of us. Unlike the American chain restaurants, there was no onion choo-choo train nor volcano. 

Though I can legally drink alcohol in Japan at the age of 20, I opted for this Double Happiness blooming tea. $12 tea, but so pretty!

Appetizer. You know a place is fancy when they serve exact bite-sized spoonfuls. 

First time eating raw beef, and most likely my last. 

Live abalone. This was my first time seeing it alive. To be honest, it looks like a vagina. 

The abalone was crawling out of its shell like a monster in a horror movie. Moving vagina…. 

Ugly, but so delicious! 

DAYUM, DAT FAT TO MEAT RATIO DOE. The marbling…. This is why Kobe Beef is so famous! 

Salad with transparent idk-what that I first thought was ice. 

This vegetable is looks like infinite mini broccoli on broccoli. 

Aside from the raw beef in my appetizer, this is the most raw I have ever eaten my meat. 

Dessert! 

The chef greeted me happy birthday with fire and a sparkler that is blocked by the cups. Bummer… 

This post is my first attempt at food photography, so I hope you enjoyed it!

Thank you for reading~ ヾ(@⌒ー⌒@)ノ
