All of that looks amazing! I bet the rolls are good. I like the Beef Bobotie at TH's breakfast, so I'm sure I'd like the rolls!

Steak and ribs look AMAZING!!! Yum.

I use a 50mm lens too for food! Although I just got a new lens for food photography! I think your pictures look great! Hey- aren't you supposed to be a beginner??

So excited that you started your reviews! Dinner at Jiko looks great - we've never been there (or AKL for that matter!) and it's on my list.

Very excited for the start of your Food TR and your Mom's TR. It's like Doublemint Gum - Double Fun!

We haven't eaten at Jiko before, but do have it planned for our next trip. Your review looked very good, and I especially like to hear about the attentiveness of the servers/management.

Looking forward to reading more!

Jiko looks tasty! It's on the list for our family trip in Jan (so far away!) I am hoping because of what AKL is it should be a place that I can take my kiddos to and if they act up at least there is a lot to do if I need to take them outside of the restaurant. Plus we will hopefully be staying there for that trip as well...

I just purchased a 35mm f1.8 for my Nikon - and I love it. Its a little different from the 50mm, but once you get in the groove of finding that sweet spot of clarity and focus and then having the beautiful bokeh it's great!

Your meal at Jiko looks so good! I haven't been there yet, but I'm a big fan of Sanaa, and AKL is such a pretty resort.

Your meal at Jiko looked amazing, we haven't dined there in over a year! I think I saw y'all for a split second one day! We had just been seated at The Plaza for a late lunch on a Monday around 2 and I think y'all were heading out the door. I didn't want to be a dis stalker and chase y'all down just to say Hi!

That would have been us!!! We would have been excited to meet you but I know how it goes. We may have looked a bit like Eeyore, we were heading to catch our DME bus right then so it was our final farewell.

You don't happen to be in this photo are you??

Just confirming this is the gal you saw...


Note: Have I said that I hate PB today, well I do! Errr... sizing broken.

Love your photos of Jiko, Emily. The beef rib looks as outstanding as you describe.

PB Sucks. I'm so over it right now! I'm currently trying to upload some pictures… I've never done the "resizing" thing with them though. I just want them to put my pictures in the RIGHT order!!! Oldest first! Is that REALLY so stinking hard?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?

Hooray, you've started your report!

I'm so glad that you both liked Jiko! I thought it was excellent and I'm glad you thought so, too!
