Dinner With A Friend At Nanbantei

夫はまた今日から金曜日まで出張、寒い上海に行きました。3日続けて1人で夕食はちょっとさみしいのでお友達にお声をかけてみたところ、今日はお友達のご主人もご出張されていてお付き合いいただくことができました。多分、夜ご一緒するのは初めて。お友達もご家族とよく行かれるという、南蛮亭にご一緒しました。途中からおしゃべりと食べるのに忙しくてほとんど写真を撮っていませんでしたが、銀杏、南蛮焼き、柚子胡椒焼き、トマトの豚巻き、オクラの豚バラ巻き、トウモロコシ、玉ネギ、餃子、ガーリックライス、デザートに冷たいおぜんざいと色々いただき、2人で94ドルほどでしたのでとってもお安いと思います。(わたしはビールを1杯いただきました。)玉ネギは焼き足りなく辛かったですが(そういえば、以前もそうだった。。。)、他はどれも美味しくいただきました。

My husband left for Shanghai on business today and won’t be back until Friday.  It seems a bit boring to have evening meals alone 3 days in a row so I asked a friend of mine if her husband would be away at the same time and he was today so we had dinner together at Nanbantei. I forgot to take photos after a while as we were busily eating and talking but we ordered Ginko nuts, Nanban-yaki, Yuzu-kosho pork, tomato with pork, okra with pork, sweet corn, onion, Gyoza, garlic rice and a sweet bean soup dessert.  The onion was a little strong (as they weren’t cooked through) but the rest was very tasty.  I had a beer, my friend had just tea and the total bill was about S$94 for 2 of us, which seems very inexpensive.

結構美味しいと思うのに、ほとんど日本人を見かけないのが不思議です。

It always surprises me that we don’t often see many Japanese in this restaurant because I think their food is consistently good. (The only problem is that we sat at the counter and the smoke came towards us a few times and my hair (and probably the whole body) is smelling smoke!)

美味しく楽しいひとときでした!お付き合いいただいて、ありがとうございました!(1つ困ったのは、座った場所が悪かったようで何度か煙るがむわ〜〜っと来て燻されて、自分がとっても煙臭いです。)

We enjoyed their food and also chatting together – had a lovely evening.
