Our Second Wedding Anniversary - Part One!

Our second wedding anniversary has come and gone, but I still have to blog about it! How can I not? Two years is quite amazing, but of course not as amazing as being with someone for twenty years or even fifty, but well I feel every year counts, and ever moment should be treasured.

I decided to bring Daddy Li for an early anniversary dinner since he would be bringing me out on our actual anniversary date. Of course, we had to include Kaitlin as well so I decided to bring us to a family place cos that way there is less pressure if she makes noise, and the other patrons would naturally understand our situation.

Ristorante Da Valentino it was! It's located at The Grandstand (former Turf City) so we decided to check out PasarBella before dinner. It's such a lovely place but produce there can get seriously overpriced.

Here's us outside the restaurant!

We were so super famished that we couldn't wait for the food to arrive. Thankfully, they served us some bread first. I love it when restaurants serve bread rolls with butter or like olive oil! It makes me super happy and I feel so at home there..I know I sound weird..but warm bread rolls are the best :D

Food arrived!! Seriously it was quite hard to choose what to have cos everything sounded so yummy, or maybe it was cos we were hungry that's why. 

We got a Carnivore pizza to share and it was so good! Daddy Li thinks the white-based pizza at Etna is better, but hey hey to me both taste great. Way better than Pizza Hat, so that's good enough for me.

We also ordered a squid ink pasta with salmon and shrooms in cream sauce. I don't really take well to cream sauce cos I will feel all nauseous, but it had salmon and shrooms in it (my fave) and it was the day's special so we just got it. I felt that the pasta portion was a tad small but lucky we ordered a pizza so it was just nice for us. Nevertheless, it was cooked to perfection. Writing this now makes me really want to go back for more!!

For dessert, we tried their tiramisu! Actually all their desserts looked so yummy but we didn't want to be greedy pigs and end up wasting food so we chose one..and it was really good. Love how creamy and rich it was.

Kaitlin got to have some minced meat from the pizza and salmon from the pasta as well! She also finished the dinner I prepared for her from home. She was on excellent behaviour mode..and for some reason she got really excited halfway through our meal!

She started playing with the napkin and then proceeded to play with the cutlery. It was really quite hilarious to watch. The waiters were all really friendly as well, and some entertained her for few seconds here and there.

Attempted to take a famfam picture of ourselves before we left but quite fail..luckily a waited spotted and offered to help us take the picture below:

Speaking of the waiters, I have to say the service at Ristorante Da Valentino was excellent. Every waiter that served us was warm and friendly. We felt so at home there that I would highly recommended it as a great family restaurant to check out.
