Vday was a simple but enjoyable affair for Bob and I. The highlight (besides of course, celebrating our relationship…) was food that was SUPER GOOD. thumbs up big toes up!!
My gift to Bob
Bob’s gift to me.
There wasn’t much time to do much after work, so we caught Ah Boys To Men 2 (suddenly a lot of helicopter shots and various instrumental versions of the theme song??) and decided to have dinner at Satsuma, a place I’d seen on Instagram and wanted to try the previous day (but it was closed).
Satsuma’s located at one of the independent standing cylindrical buildings at Gallery Hotel (you’ll get what I mean when you see it). First floor seemed like all jap-sitting dining (you know, a pillow on the floor…); there are 2 semi private seating areas on the 2nd floor and “normal dining” settings – seats and tables.
Everywhere quite dark.
Appetisers – fresh veg and miso dip. $5.
Grilled eggplant with miso, $9.
Grilled Sanma Fish with plum, $9
Grilled prawns with sweet miso, $18
Leek and chicken thigh, bacon wrapped mushrooms, $6 for 2 sticks
Angel Hair pasta with truffle oil. “umame heaven”, Bob says.
Foie Gras, $13 for 2 sticks (4-5 pcs of that size per stick. Also heavenly!)
Candied sweet potato sticks for desert, $10
So the prices were a little steep but it was ALL WORTH IT!! We decided to pass on deep fried stuff and raw stuff and zoomed in on grilled dishes. Which seemed to be the right choice – all the yakitori was grilled to perfection and amazingly tender on the inside. The pasta was absolutely fantastic. I guess the meh dishes were the chicken and leek and sweet potato sticks. Must tries are the pasta, eggplant and foie gras, I guarantee you happiness.
Great food and a great date made a great vday! Muffin wishes you all the love and happiness you need this year. 🙂
