there's this restaurant i go past every morning en route to work. kappaya japanese soul food cafe. it looked so lovely, but only open 9-4, tuesday-saturday, and i've just never made it.
but because i can't take my real birthday off on monday (stuff to do at work) i took today off and made my way there. oh my goodness! so cute! so jazz music! so antique! so fancy presentation! so good healthy food! so brown rice! so many kinds of seaweed! so reasonably priced for melbourne! so my new favourite place to hang out!
