Phew! It has been quite a busy week for me with all the CNY and Valetine’s Day celebrations. So much so that my dark circles are getting the better of me. In actual fact, they are taking over my life. 😦
On a cheery note, let me recap on what’s in for me on V Day 4 days ago! 🙂
Bf reserved a table for two at Beach Cabana (location stated in the menu below) early this Feb during 1 of his friend’s bday celebration.
I would say it’s quite value for money! 🙂
Here’s the menu :
Bf took the steak while I had the fish. 2 reasons for my choice was because firstly, I’m more of a fish over steak person and secondly, I can’t chew well with my braces.
The food tasted acceptably well and satisfactory.
Ambience-wise, it was ok. Located at East Coast Park, you can expect sea breeze and dining in an outdoor experience. Only thing was, it was raining. I mean almost the whole of Feb was pouring and still continuing to do so! It’s really a hassle when you intend to head out during this CNY period as well. And worse is, CABS ARE ALMOST NON-EXISTENT!!!
Back to topic, we witnessed a toad hopping around the cafe, but it was alright because it seemed harmless and it was about 1m away from us.
We were welcomed with a bouquet of roses at the table.
Bf didn’t get me any flowers because not all girls expect them on Vday, you know? Moreover, he did present me a bouquet of blue roses for our V day last year 🙂
We think that it’s such a waste of money because they don’t last and usually, keep dried flowers attract icky insects and eventually they would have to be thrown away. Totally not worth it.
In addition, we merely had this simple V Day dinner together and agreed not to buy any gifts for each other. We would rather spend it on our upcoming 5th Anniversary! 🙂
Guess that’s more private, personal and special to us than the commercialised day on 14th Feb 🙂
I had champagne while bf had white wine. Not really a fan of wine. The white wine tasted like a mixture of beer and liquor together. But since bf said wines are beneficial to health, I took some several sips. Haha!
We were first served with our appetizers. Scallops and cream of mushroom soup! You may refer to the menu above for the actual full name.
Both tasted good. Was satisfied 🙂
Close-up view of the scallops!
The only thing that annoyed me a little was that the shell was broken and a piece of its remnant was hidden with the sauce and scallop meat and I had chewed on it. Other than that, they were fine, though too little in quantity, haha!
And before our mains arrived, we toasted and cheered for our everlasting love! 🙂
Here comes bf’s steak with pepper sauce. The beady balls are pepper. I preferred his mushroom than mine.
The beef was quite chewy and was served as well-done as requested. But I had a little difficulty in chewing it completely before swallowing it down.
Portion was alright but don’t expect those thick slab ones.
And this is my main dish.
It was rather small in portion. The asparagus were alright, not too hard in my opinion. My mushrooms were a tad too little for one’s consumption and they were sauteed and dried, instead of those served with bf’s main.
This was the dessert – named Coffee Panna Cotta. This was the main disappointment I faced. It was quite small, though I didn’t manage to finish it. It tasted like mousse cake sort of texture and softness. The brown seed was a coffee seed. I wasn’t very satisfied by ending my dinner with this.
Realised we didn’t manage to snap a picture of V Day but decorated 1 of our CNY pics anyway 🙂
Thank you for the wonderful Valetine’s Day dinner as well as our quality time well-spent! 🙂
I hope your Valetine’s Day was as fabulous as mine!
For all those singles out there, fret not. Don’t rush into any relationships just because you are feeling lonely or left out.
Take your time to understand the other party before committing to prevent complications.
