A tasting meal for wedding

Last year my friend engaged with her boyfriend. And recently she is looking for a nice place to host the wedding party.
Last week she invited me to a tasting meal for wedding. Supposedly she was going with her fiancé but he couldn’t make it so I went for him.

A splendid performance

We went to “8G.minamihorie“, a restaurant in Osaka.
When we sat down side by side at the table, there were welcome message cards on each plate. And there was my name’s embroidery on the napkin. Wow! I felt like a groom.

The course started with 8 kinds of relishes as starters, a sea bream as entree, and finished with a regular dessert and a surprise dessert. A sous-chef came to our table and explained each dish.
All dishes were splendid. So I was very full that I couldn’t eat all the sweets. That was my only regret for the day.

All the food are free!!

I went to bathroom and found our pictures, which were taken at the beginning of the meal, framed nicely near the sink.
There were many small surprises, a hand written welcome message, a napkin with my name, surprise sweets and our pictures in the bathroom.

And above all, all the food and such elaborated services are free!!

The restaurant knows my friend has already visited other restaurants and she will choose one of them. Although I have nothing to do with picking the restaurant, the restaurant staff treated me very well.

Overwhelmed by their hospitality

We left the restaurant and walked away on the street and looked back, a sous-chef was still standing and waving his hand to us. It was raining and cold that day.
We were walking and holding our umbrellas. Suddenly my friend uttered and said “There is a heat pad in my coat pocket!” Likewise, there was the same thing in my pocket with a thank you card.
What a nice and warm hospitality! I was quite overwhelmed by their over the top hospitality.

ポケットにホカロンまで入ってるなんて!
至れり尽くせりだわ。
それに、美味しそうなデザート。
あなたの結婚式の時を思い出したわ。
可愛いお嫁さんだった。
今も、可愛いけどね。^^

最後の1文が重要だね^^!あ〜うれし笑!

実はWelcomeデザートもあったんです。自分がデザートを残すなんて信じられなかった。持って帰るわけにもいかずw。
カイロはお店を出てから気がついた事なので、心に残る演出でした。

しかし、あれだけのおもてなしは男性にはちょっと気恥ずかしいかもしれません…。(花婿代理)
