Birthday Dinner

Yes, last Thursday was my birthday.  It wasn’t such a big day since I had to work.  Working on your birthday should be illegal.  There should be a national holiday every day for each person’s birthday.

The one thing that WAS really special was our dinner that night.  DB found a very nice restaurant, called ML.  What lovely food we had!  I was a little sad that I didn’t have my camera with me so I could take pictures of it.  We had the 4 course set menu with wine arrangement.  We had a different glass of wine with every course.  Most of it was fish or shellfish, but the last was beef.  No, the VERY last was dessert of course.  The most surprising thing we ate was the dessert amuse which was a small glass with pineapple mousse on the bottom, then a layer of creamy something, then a layer of drop (licorice) foam!  I loved it.

If you are in Haarlem with some cash to spend on dinner, definitely go to ML.  And if you want to have a small wedding or special event, it would be perfect for that too.

  1. You and Andy have your birthday one day apart then!
    Hartelijk gefeliciteerd and enjoy knit in public day. Our lys organised a picnic in the park nearby but I’m not actually at home today as the kids are with their dad for the weekend and I’m at my partner’s house. Haven’t even knitted today yet… must remedy that!

  2. “And if you want to have a small wedding” – this place is where we had our wedding dinner! It was going by a different name back then though. Great place.
