Blue crush and Teppanyaki


Friday night I had a Japanese Teppanyaki feast...and inspired by the Japanese 'theme', wore my Akira Isogawa embroidered dress, started with the blue, decided to go all blue on a whim...


Akira Isogawa Resort '09 silk embroidered dress
Burberry navy leather jacket
Burberry Prorsum large metallic flower necklace
Dries Van Noten beaded & sequinned sandals & clutch

It was an absolute feast...


Started with Kangaroo Island lobster salad with creamy sesame dressing


Followed by fried nori rolls of king prawn tempura with soba noodles


King George whiting with pesto paste


It was fun watching the chef cook the teppanyaki as we sat around him


And to see him flambe the wagyu we were about to eat


The wagyu was the highlight of the meal, absolutely delicious...Wagyu beef strip loin served with fried garlic


Shitake and abalone mushrooms with garlic chives


Crab and shitake mushroom miso soup


Hinode grand dessert (from left to right): tofu creme brulee (a little weird), mirin sabayon with red bean, green tea-ramisu (these last two were delicious!),


I absolutely love my Burberry washed leather navy jacket...bought this in Barcelona, and was photographed by El Periodico with my sisters & hubby after we left the store, laden with shopping bags, ending up on the following day on the newspaper! I did not even realize the jacket was navy until I took it to the counter, which made it even better...love the texture of the leather and the ribbed sleeve cuffs, collar and waist...

  14. i love this outfit, the mixing of the prints on the bag and the dress and the shot of colour is perfect. and that jacket is... amazing... the leather looks like it would so buttery-soft to the touch!

    i'm not a huge japanese eater, i just haven't found a good restaurant in sydney that does anything other than sushi, but this all looks so good!

  15. Oooh...your photographs always make me drool! That's a very cool jacket, I love the blue and how nice and worn it looks. I bought an indigo leather jacket this summer and I just love it, it's a nice change from the expected black yet we won't wonder later what we were thinking when we bought them!

  16. Beautifully put together outfit. I'm so taken by the Japanese inspired print on the dress and how it works with the details on the shoes. So rich and luxe looking.

    Your taste in cuisine is fabulous too!

  17. How I miss teppanyaki, it's been so long since I've indulged in it. You look absolutely stunning in blue, although I'd be scared of getting food and oil all over your gorgeous outfit! The leather jacket is especially breathtaking...I mean, navy leather! What a great purchase!
