My family and I usually eat out during Christmas Eve most especially when dad was still alive. It has always been a tradition every year. As the years go by, we still do eat out but with less people. Some of my siblings have other activities at church and for this year's Christmas Eve dinner, it's only me, my mom, my brother Anthony and his wife Christine. We had a buffet dinner at Senju, a Japanese restaurant at the Edsa Shangri-La Plaza Hotel. This is actually the first time I brought my camera to take food photos at the restaurant. I was using flash at first but I noticed that some people were looking at me, so I decided not to use them. Here are some random photos of the food, but not all, that we had for tonight.
Edamame - My favorite
My Teppanyaki Plate
Ingredients for the Sukiyaki
There's nothing green on this plate. :D Other dishes in random order: agedashi tofu, chicken karaage, grilled gindara, prawn tempura, chicken terriyaki, tofu and radish stew.
Japanese Sake Wine Jelly(it looks like black sesame seed jelly with red beans to me)
Green Tea Chocolate Fondue
Green Tea Mousse
Banana Zen Zai
While Christmas is commonly associated with family and friends, food and gifts, Christmas trees and lights and other activities, the most important part of Christmas is the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Have a meaningful and hopeful Christmas to everyone.
