For the love of Turning 30

Normally my birthday is not a big deal at all. It comes and it goes. But this year, as I am turning 30, I have been doing a lot of reflecting on my life- what I have done and what I still hope to achieve. Some people may shy away from this milestone birthday, but I for one, am embracing 30 because I truly feel blessed and grateful and upon reflection I am deeply humbled.

For a small family dinner, we went for dinner at Le Bernardin in the city. My older sister, Maryam, and I have birthdays one day apart (she is 364 days older than me) so this was a collaboration birthday dinner for the both of us. It was a prix fixe menu which included appetizers and then the 4 course meal, the last course being dessert. The food was spectacular. I included pics from almost all of the entrees. The service was prompt and the waiters were unbelievably polite and responsive. My dinner entree was not as delicious as the previous entrees but I didn’t say anything. The waiter came up to me on his own and insisted on bringing me something else. They sent me a new dish which perfected the whole experience. The food was positively flavorful and filling. Dessert completed the whole meal and was out of this world. So much robust flavor and texture. A sweet ending to the meal accompanied with iced cappuccino.
