It was my birthday this past weekend!
Well, with the situation as it is, we kept it simple, but did go a bit further to pick up lunch and the cake the husband had ordered. We went into Mountain View, where one of the main roads has been closed to traffic and turned into a large outdoor dining area. We didn’t eat there but took the food home to eat, as we are still being extra cautious about being out.
We had lunch from Doppio Zero:
- squid ink pasta with seafood
- oxtail rigatoni
- pizza with rapini, burrata, Calabrian chili
- pizza with burrata, arugula, prosciutto
- fried calamari and shrimp
Also, this cake from Alexander’s Patisserie which may look familiar if you’ve followed this blog for a while, as the husband has ordered it three years in a row for my birthday. It’s that good – and that sinful, so only a small slice for each of us.
For dinner, we had delicious Malaysian/Singaporean food, as well as Burmese food.
What a delightful birthday!
