Dinner @ Mongolian Grill & Fine Dining @ Cioppino's

Saturday, November 1, 2008


From sketchy to classy in back-to-back dinners-

But note that both have equal satisfactory values!

Sketch:

Dinner @ Mongolian Grill, Downtown (26th of October, 2007)

I'm not sure if the amount of food I'm eating is more scary than my expression.

The pig being a pig.

And this is how they create the Mongolian Masterpiece:

My food shrank. So now it doesn't make me look like a notorious pig.


Mmm, Mongolian grill always tend to hit the spot. It's one of closest cuisine that can possibly replace my constant crave for Malaysian food.

And the very next night,

Class:

Fine Dining @ Cioppino's, Yaletown (27th of October, 2008)

We both cleaned up out act a little for this just to meet the higher class of dining that Cioppino's offers.

Evidently, Cioppino's has amazing reviews on its Italian/Mediterranean cuisine and based on our experienced, the place definitely lived up to its standard.

I miss posing in the nice washroom lighting with my girlfriends... I'm flying solo for now :( Oh, that's probably why Erik was waiting so long for me when I headed out to the washroom... HEHE.

Antipasti:

I think we cleaned up pretty nicely! And those are our appetizers: tuna carpaccio on the center plate and scallop & barley risotto on our individual plates. I especially loved the scallops (literally the sweetest, yummiest scallops I've eaten ever) and the barley risotto was pretty awesome.

The veal; which was incredibly juicy and tender. Note: Erik sure likes to pose like a complete bimbo cheerleader...

The seafood pasta in creamy tomato sauce. I forgot the name of the pasta but it was stuffed with goodness and the lobster and crab was fabulous.


Dolci:
(Sweets a.k.a Dessert)

On the left is the chocolate mousse with a raspberry (or was it cranberry? or neither?) center filling and on the right is the chocolate cake topped with what tasted like sweetened, condensed milk & vanilla icecream.

The dolci's were superb! It was the perfect ending touch to a perfect dinner.

Now here's a short video of us being silly in a place we shouldn't really be silly in:



It really is quite fun to dress up once in a while just for a fancy dinner :)

Within limit of course. Money doesn't grow on trees after all!

.... Thus, ends a wonderful evening!
