I used to always read about the restaurant and “Hollywood Hotspot” Nobu when I read gossip magazines or PerezHilton. Note the past tense because I haven’t been up to date in any gossip – Hollywood or otherwise. So when I found out we were dining at Nobu for my almost in-laws’ 34th wedding anniversary, I was surprised because I didn’t even know it was opening here. Need to be less self-absorbed and brush up on current events, Saab! Anyway, it was a great dinner before 2014 ended!
Nobu is named such after its head chef and founder Nobu Matsuhisa. He is well known for blending traditional Japanese dishes with South American ingredients.
Matsuhisa was made even more famous when his customer, actor Robert De Niro, was so impressed and offered to partner up with him. Apparently, he even had a small role in Martin Scorsese’s Casino and did some cameos in Austin Powers: Goldmember and Memoirs of a Geisha. Daming raket ni kuya!
It was a fab dinner and I’m glad to have been invited!
After dinner we went outside where it was so pretty and quiet.
On our way to a cabana, which was surrounded by water, Nunki got too excited and walked straight ankle-deep into the shallow pool. Brave girl, buti nalang she didn’t cry haha.
There we heard stories of tita Bing and tito Gerry’s love life. This made Nunki kind of force Jim to kiss my hand. She had to teach him how to do it too hahaha
Jim and the girls
Jim’s cousin works at Nobu and arranged a little tour for us! We got a little sneak peek at their beautiful hotel rooms.
Thank you SO much to Chelo for sending me these photos from her new camera woohoo!! I’d also like to thank Una, Ely and Eon Buendia for the pretty dress I wore that night. So flattered that you think I’m a size UK 6. Miraculously, it fits me. Hehehe.
Most of all, I’d like to thank The Bacarros for inviting me to dinner and for giving me the best gift of all: Jim. TEEHEE.
