It finally cooled down a bit. Those hot, humid days are getting less frequent and it is actually a bit cold tonight. Fall has started. There was this big typhoon a few days ago with loads of rain and we had a little flooding at Bondiya again, but not too serious. With the summer behind us, we are getting ready for a new season with new things at Bondiya. A special wine weekend is coming up, a few new dishes on the menu and October will have a new lunch menu again. Also, we are slowly starting to think about Christmas, bonenkais and osechi. We are building up to the end of the year.
If you are planning an end of the year party or just a party with your friends or collegues, think about Bondiya. We have very interesting private parties for bigger groups on good value. Menus start from 2000 yen (15 people or more), 2500, 3000, 3500,etc, and all you can drink offers as well. Please contact us for reservations, inquiries or availability.
Osechi will be another big thing for us. Every year we sell these new years boxes for 13.500 yen. They are stuffed with all kinds of Bondiya favorites accompanied by a baquette and optional Bondiya wine.
Soon more information and pictures about osechi.

Rei-chan and Aki

The other day, the Nagasako family dropped by for lunch. Rei chan had vanilla ice cream, but it was very cold. It was so funny seeing her eating it.

Also, Misato chan came with her mother and drew this beautiful picture of me. She always wants to go to Bondiya because she likes the food. My youngest fan, hahaha.

A year ago we were in full preparation for the opening of Bondiya. I can’t believe a year goes by so fast.

In March 2010 we found the current location and it was very different from what it is now. Before us there was a sushi restaurant established in our location, and the owner moved to Tokyo to start a restaurant there. Still we sometimes have his customers coming in asking what happend.

The first thing we did was removing all the wallpaper, flooring and ceiling. We reorganised the layout, Eriko’s father did all the carpenters work, and then it was time to put in new flooring, ceiling and wallpaper. We finished with the walls, covering them in a sort of clay material, and painting the woodwork. When this was all finished, we had to go shopping for furniture, kitchen stuff, plates, glasses, etc,etc. and putting everything in it’s right place. After the final cleaning, it was time for the menu test cooking. We had 2 dinner and a lunch pre open test, and after this we realised we still had quite a lot to do. After that, 2 final days off, to spend some time with the kids and then it was opening time. Saturday June 5th, loads of flowers and presents arrived in the morning from all our friends and relatives. That was great.

I was very surprised when later in the evening I stepped outside for a minute and realized all flowers were stolen. I went in panic to Eriko, but she explained that it is custom in Japan that opening day flowers are free to take for anyone. It brings good luck.

Opening night was still the busiest day so far, with 67 guests.

Now, 1 year later, it looks like yesterday, but so many things happened in between. The first 3 weeks I can’t even remember. The Worldcup soccer, obon,ITV, bonenkai, Christmas, osechi, New Year, Golden week. All the birthdays, private parties. Most of my old Y’s students dropped by. Eriko’s old friends and co-workers. All the other restaurant/bar owners in Ise. And we made so many new friends. Thank you all for our first fantastic year. We hope to see you again in our second year at Bondiya.
