Roji: Celebrating my finished thesis!



Finished! Finally finished! After three months of no free time – researching and writing in the evenings after work and on my days off – my thesis is completed! One step closer to my MBA!

To celebrate submitting my thesis Sunday afternoon, Koen and I headed to Roji for dinner. Roji is a place, to quote their site, to “Experience French-Japanese kitchen at its finest in the heart of historic Antwerp.” I’d never had French-Japanese food, so I was excited to try!



Time to start celebrating!





At Roji, we decided to go with the Omakase Menu – if we’re out to celebrate, might as well order the biggest menu! The menu is broken up as follows:

Sanseke: 3 very important Japanese tea ceremony’s, “3 starters”
Wabi-Cha: This style emphasizes the simple tea ceremony, “pur sushi”
Omotesenke: The Sen house, main school of tea ceremony, “wild fish”
Hida Gyu: Japanese black-haired beef raised in Gifu Prefecture 14 months.
Tsukubai: The body is cleaned; rinsing the mouth.
The presentation was beautiful and the food was just as good as it looks!

To accompany our menu, we decided to go with the sake pairing. Their offer is very extensive and we had a lot of fun discussing the sake with our waiter. I love sparkling sake, and was happy to end the evening with one!
