Ok not THAT Macao/澳門/Macau which would have been a bomb ass Vday surprise.
But this one was still on the island of Manhattan.
But anyways… I spent the day laying around, making videos on Social Cam… [okay fine I slept in LATE] and then getting ready for Vday
The only sort of full body shot of my outfit. I had a cute tube pink dress.
Just to warn you, these are pretty horrible pictures [flash and nonflash GAG]. I need a new phone and a new digi cam. But anyways… J booked us a table at Macao, another one of his favorite restaurants. I’m not a huge Valentine’s Day person but this was a great one.
So we started off with some… our favorite, pink bubbly!!!!!
[pink bubbles….will make MUCH more sense when I blog about J & I’d adventure in Taiwan… which is still in the process of being written up – here’s pictures until then….]
Llopart Brut Cava 2009 Vintage
The brilliant 2009 Brut Reserva Rose sparkling wine was made from an intriguing blend of 60% Monastrell (Mourvedre), 20% Garnacha (Grenache) and 20% Pinot Noir, and was aged 18 months in bottle prior to being released. The fermentation was done in bottle, which is called Methode Champenoise. Fresh strawberry, cherry and blueberry-like aromas jump from the glass of this rose. It possesses impressive purity, effervescence, tiny, well-formed bubbles, good body, a slight austerity, and a dry, surprisingly intense style.
Delicious as usual. And plus. Vday. Aphrodisiac right?! ;]
Bacon/Pork Belly Buns
black garlic slaw, spicy housemade ketchup
I love my baos.
Very yummy!!! Delicious soft fluffy bao with nice fatty flavorful pork. They gave us three and we split the third one :] We’re sappy like that.
My cute date.
We also got the Mushroom and Truffle Croquettes
DELICIOUS. Everything you would imagine and more. A MUST get when you come here……
And then split the Macanese Chili Prawns with Rice…..
AMAAAAAAAAAZING… especially the rice in the sauce afterwards <3 JOY. We also had a side of DELICIOUS Brussels Sprouts with chili-lime vinaigrette.
