Happy Birthday to Brett
Tonight Brett and went out for Indonesian food to celebrate his birthday. We went for an experience called a "rice table," which is 25 -30 little plates of different Indonesian dishes. My understanding from my Indonesian co-workers is that the dishes served are Indonesian, but the concept of a rice table doesn't exist in Indonesia. Apparently it's a Dutch import.
It was tasty and a fun experience overall. Kind of like a buffet brought to you. For the dessert course they brought out blue pears! They had been soaking them in blue curacao liqueur to give them an electric blue color. The picture here (from a cell phone) just doesn't do it justice.
