birthday dinner at Knock Cucina Buona Italiana

RiRi organized a birthday dinner for me with 11 of my close friends. It was nice of her. She loves Knock Cucina Buona Italiana (ノック クッチーナ ボナ イタリアーナ) in Roppongi and decide to hold my birthday celebrations there.

She ordered a party plan, which came with 12 dishes and 1.5 hours of all you can drink (90分飲み放題). The drinks included soft drinks, red wine, white wine, Spumante (Sparkling wine) and beer. The dishes included a variety of veggies, Knock’s famous dish, meat dish, and two types of pasta.

We started with Mascarpone, Gorgonzola and Raisin Bread, Pane e Panna. This was delish and very different from the usual white bread served at most Italian restaurants. The mascarpone and gorgonzola spread is hidden underneath the bread.
