Koen and I see New Year’s Eve as a reason to indulge. Normally that means champagne, lobster, foie gras, and any other decadent food or ingredient we can think of – but this year we decided to challenge ourselves to create a kaiseki dinner for the two of us.

Lisbon: SEA ME
When looking up the best restaurants for seafood in Lisbon, you’ll find SEA ME – a Portuguese/Japanese fusion restaurant in Chiado. Because we love Japanese food, we really wanted to visit SEA ME! We discovered the restaurant a bit late in the trip, but luckily were able to secure a reservation our last night in Lisbon. I knew already a bit about the Portuguese-Japanese connection, because I watched a documentary about tempura in Japan, that it was introduced in the 16th century by the Portuguese living in Nagasaki.
New York City Day: Central Park, Mood Fabrics, Nintendo World, Cocoron
My parents didn’t buy tickets for the US Open on Day 3, so we rented bikes and explored Central Park – so much bigger than I thought with a lot of hills! After a quick lunch, we explored a few shops while making our way to Mood Fabrics. After buying new fabric, my parents left to get ready for Wicked while Koen and I went back to Nintendo World and then to Chinatown to have dinner with Christina.
