Last Saturday (March 10th) was the annual Ise St.Patricks day parade again. This Irish festival is even celebrated here in Ise. Every year a lot of Irish and other nationalities dress up in green and other weird outfits and parade between Geku and Ise station. After this there is some dancing and Guinness beer drinking. This year, some of the participants had dinner at Bondiya and these parade goers always bring the right mood. Thanks guys. See you next year.

Bondiya is a place where different cultures come together and not just with our menu but in almost everything. That was kind of the idea when we started our restaurant almost 2 years ago. An international place where the atmosphere, food, staff, drinks and customers come together and create a unique feeling that you can’t experience elsewhere in Ise or even Mie-ken. We have a lot of customers from different nationalities but a lot of Japanese overseas travellers as well. We just had a few visits from our friend Kaori, who lives in Prague. She brought a very interesting bottle of Chech wine, some salami and sweets.


Also, Eiko, our friend for years and a sometimes part time worker at Bondiya, visited Spain and some of our friends. We asked her to buy some saffron (in Japan it is extremey expensive) and she came back with a big box.
Thanks Kaori and Eiko.

From the 1st of February until the 9th, we were closed at Bondiya because I went back to my home country, the Netherlands, for a week. I hadn’t been back for almost 3 years and the main reason was to visit my Dutch family and friends. It was a very fast week with only 5 full days to enjoy, plus, it was the coldest week ever with -18 at night some days. But nevertheless, it was a great week and very much needed after December and everything that it brings with it.
I will post some pics, so you have an idea how Holland and the Dutch culture, food and people look like. If you have any questions, please post a comment.

Last Sunday we had a private party at Bondiya for lunch, organized by my friend Hisashi san. It was his friends birthday and he organized a harp concert and clown performances. It was really nice and the guests had a lot of fun. The party had dishes from the dinner menu and Hisashi san brought his own cake.

A very happy new year to all Bondiya customers, blog readers, suppliers and (former)staff. Thank you for making 2011 a successful year for us and we hope to see you again in 2012. 2011 was a quite a good year for Bondiya. We had our first holiday, 1 year anniversary, December,etc,etc and many great memories with all of our customers. I just recover from a little cold and lack of sleep. I guess December was quite crazy, but fun.
Enjoy the pics

A few weeks ago it was Sean’s birthday and he had 2 parties on 2 different days at Bondiya. Happy birthday, sir. Both days ended with quite a few beers and karaoke. I’m already looking forward to your next birthday.
Here also some random food pictures I took.


Last Tuesday, it was Tomomi and Ryota’s wedding. We used to work together in Bon Vivant and Ryota was one of my first Japanese friends when I came to Ise in 2002. Both Tomomi and Ryota worked for years at Bondiya and Ryota now produces salt that he sells all over Japan. This “homemade” seasalt is prepared in a traditional way and will soon be available at Bondiya, with more details about it as well.
The wedding party was at Bout-en-train and all the old staff from Bon Vivant was there. It was great to see everybody again and catch up. Some people totally changed their proffesion, but most of them are still working in restaurants. Ryota and Tomomi, congratulations and a lot of love.
After the party and loads of good wine, we had a third party at Poni anela, the wine bar close to Geku shrine (community doro) on the second floor. Miho san has a nice selection of wines and her place has a great atmosphere. We had 2 more bottles there before heading home.
