✿Thanks... dinner.

My friend Mayu came back to the bay for the holiday and I spent Thanksgiving dinner at her house with her family. 
She is Mayu's grandmother who is 95 years old.  Her skin is so smooth and soft and she is always stylish. She like to match the colors.

Mayu is a personaly chef in NYC and her food looks great as well as the taste.  Mayu's Mothr made Japanese strawberry cakes which I love !

✿Cafe Gratitude...

My first experience of raw food restaurant at Cafe Gratitude. I didn't know what to expect...   I just knew that was a new popular spot in Berkeley.

Almost all the customer were woman and it was packed with full of people and also the place had nice light and the brick walls...

so I tried this sample dish which comes with various kinds of raw food.

I AM ABUNDANT (that's the name of the dish...) sampler plateLive nachos, kale-sea veggie salad, stuffed mushroom, olive tapenade, live hummus, and a mini Thai coconut soup. Served with assorted live crackers and almond toast. $12

I AM ADORING live tiramisu - Raw cacao and almond tiramisu cake with sweet cashew cream and raw chocolate espresso filling. $6.50

I AM LOVELY fresh fruit cobbler - Cobbler of the day topped with nuts and crème fraiche. $6.50 Apple and Kaki were the fruits of the day.

My most favorite dish was the fruit cobbler. It was full of fruits and tasty. It was nice exprience to go there and find out what's raw food is all about.
