Oooooh, dinner was a good thing. I went to Christos down the street and they are definitely made of yum.

I got a sampler plate to have three different meals. Spanakopita, mousaka, and dolmathes. All are small versions of larger dishes and they were perfectly balanced. Retsina was the main (white) wine, with its lightly pine flavor, and I ended the evening with chocolate mousse and a mavrodaphne, which is a sweet red wine.

What a perfect dinner to have to celebrate my own birthday. Happy 31st, Tegan. You deserved it.

Everest on Grand

I treated myself to a massage early this morning, lunch at Everest on Grand (the Yak Momos are YumYum), and renewing my driver's license that thankfully did not take long.

Nepali food is like a cross between Indian and Chinese, but less... spicy. If you had to climb down a mountain to get your spices, you'd use them sparingly as well. And yes, I really did have yak meat for lunch. It's like beef, but... leaner.

Now to figure out what I'm going to do for the rest of the day.
