Our friends Dom and Kev joined us for joint birthday celebrations at the lovely Sunshine Coast Bed and Breakfast, Ninderry Manor for another amazing Japanese feast. After feeding the crowd of kookaburras, butcher birds and magpies on the verandah their dinner, our banquet began with a zingy midori cocktail and dainty nibbles. Then seated at the elegant antique dining table, we sampled a delicious prawn mousse (called something like chow mushy) for entree, followed by Aki’s wonderful Sukiyaki, complete with my favourite yam noodles.
Dessert was a trio of homemade icecreams with fruit salad, including Aki’s specialty – sesame seed icecream – the unique taste of this visually exciting delicacy is unforgettable.
Ninderry Manor has to be experienced to be believed – we thoroughly recommend it as the premier Queensland destination for short, delicious, romantic holidays.
