Met up with dar for a very late dinner yesterday. He was having a roadshow at Tampines Mall, hence, settled for something simple and fuss-free like Fish & Chips!
We were deciding between Phin's and the newly opened Swensens. Phin's got our vote as dar hasnt eaten there before and Swensen's getting kinda boring these days. ahah.
I had beer-battered fish & chips while dar had bacon aglio.
I was kinda skeptical when dar ordered pasta bcoz i seldom have faith in restaurants, who dont exactly specialize in pasta, to deliver good quality ones. I'm not generalizing that all restaurants who dont specialize in pastas produce lousy ones, i've come across a few who have delivered pastas that surpass me and dar's "high" expectations. N there are restaurants, who specialize in pastas, that just dont quite hit the mark.
Dar's pasta was pretty okie. Hovering between room-for-improvement and average. It tasted pretty fusion to me. Like stir-fried hae bee hiam pasta or sth like that. But definitely sth dar wouldnt BAN. N not sth we would RAVE abt of course. LOL.
My fish & chips were pretty good. The batter wasnt too thick, the fish was quite fresh and chunky and you can even detect the bitterness of the beer in their crispy batter! I think they added too much beer? Cause it got a little overwhelming after a while.
N the fries! Yes u seldom hear me raving about fries. I love it when they aint too potato-ish. Crispy, hollow fries tat burst with oil upon every bite. Yes, my personal fave.
Met Farhana at TM as well. She called my name so loud i believe everyone on the 3rd and 4th floor heard her. We ended up throwing flying kisses at one another. Haha!
You know, its been a really long time since dar and me had a proper dinner date like this. In fact, its been quite sometime since we last hung out together. Probably due to his super hectic work schedule and my busy-mugging-for-exams period. He goes to work early, comes home late, and even has to slave on weekends! Eevn his mom feels unhappy about it. What more his GF! ahahha.
Anyway, i'm a really HAPPY princess today bcoz i got to spend the entire day with my baby! Shall update about tdy real soon. Take care dearies!
