Mom's Birthday Dinner

For my mom's birthday we went out to Oya Restaurant and Lounge in Penn Quarter Washington DC. I've been here once earlier in the year for a girlfriend's birthday and I ordered some rolls and wasn't too satisfied. My sister made the reservation there because the other place we wanted to go to was already booked.
The Decor of this place is all white with some black on the walls and furnitures with amazing huge chandeliers and big wide mirrors. Check out their website to see their pictures.
Onto the since I wasn't pretty satisfied the first time I didn't know what to expect this time. All of us except for my sister ordered their dinner prix frixe menu for $35. I ordered the Beef Short Rib Wellington foie gras|wild mushrooms|caramelized onions|hoisin|marjoram black pepper sauce which tasted like the Korean galbi jjim (braised short ribs) so I had no complaint there--it was so yummy. Then I had the Scallops wild mushrooms|pad thai noodles|black truffle jus--the scallops were really yummy but then again I love all seafood haha the noodles were the right portion but I got so full after all that I could barely breathe. And then for dessert I got the Banana Bread Pudding rum raisin ice icream|caramel sauce|coconut--you can never go wrong with dessert mmmmm it was the bomB! Overall the food was pretty good but it was on the salty side--it wasn't the best so I probably would only go if it's for birthdays or something.

I <3 my MAMA!!

My sister and her boyfriend.
