4 and counting

i've been busy but i had to post the pictures that already piled up in my phone starting with our anniversary dinner pics :)

for our 4th anniversary, we ate at La Girolle in Taguig, BGC. it was a very memorable dinner. i just love the intimate ambiance of the 36-seater restaurant. the chef looked like he was in control of everything. he was there looking at us from the kitchen, making sure every food that was served went to him first. 

we were not that hungry when we arrived at 730pm but we still ordered the tasting menu which was only for 3k. considering it already included 7 courses with dessert and your choice of tea or coffee, it was really worth it. 

i wanted to buy a dozen of that small 
slightly sweet bread to take home with me.

Erik's extra order of Tuna Tartare. looks lovely and tastes good
( i don't eat raw tuna but i also tried this)

my set of utensils. 4 courses to go!

i love this dish! it's ricotta cheese with caramelized fruits.

this is the foie gras with the grapes cooked 3-way!

scallops in two kinds of sauce. i like the white one. 
i thought that was peeled grapes on the side. 
Erik tried to make me eat it by agreeing that they were grapes
but before it was too late, i recognized that they were shallots! :P

the 48-hour beef or something like that. i was so full by this time 
but i still tried to eat it.  erik said the little white thing on the side was a nut!
i thought it suspiciously looked like a clove of garlic but i believed him. 
stupid me, i ate it and i was right!

time for dessert! just look at this dome of yumminess! 

there were two desserts with our coffee.
we only ate about two bites each but they were really delicious.
and i love the coffee too! 

we came from Wildflour for lunch and the coffee there, never mind the food, doesn't measure up to this one. i will not go back to Wildflour but will definitely eat again at La Girolle. the good thing about them is they change their menus all the time so there's always a reason to go back. 

one thing i realized is that we don't have an anniversary pic! :(


eat here!
