happy valentine's day!

Firstly, my apologies to the boy for being late to dinner. He'd organised dinner at Musashi but oweing to me being late, we lost our booking (they would only keen the booking open for 5 minutes! Probably the first time ever we've ever lost a booking but looking inside, you could see that the restaurant was packed so it was only fair to the queue that was going out the door of the restaurant, that whoever got there first got to be seated). Sorry Justin!

Very fortunately, Chat Thai was just across the road and even better, they had a table! All the restaurants in that area were filling up fast! We were probably the last couple to get into Chat Thai because very soon afterwards, two girls that wanted to grab dinner were almost told to share a table with us (to whoever you were, thank you for grabbing your dinner takeaway!! Admittedly, it would've been a bit weird.)

My first rose and Adora Chocolates.
Iced Coffee with Caramelised Milk (love this!) and coconut juice.
We possibly ordered a little too much. Here you have a Chicken Pad Siew, Pork Prik Khing, and a 'Ship & Shore Salad' (this was so yummy! at the same time an unlikely combination of chicken, pork, prawns, tofu, onion and deep fried egg). We also ordered a serving of rice, which possibly could've fed 4.
Chicken Satay Skewers. I love the peanut sauce!

All up the meal was under $45 including tips. In hindsight, it was probably more worthwhile to eat here given how big the servings were, how delicious the food was and how fast the food got to our table. Had we been at Musashi, the bill would've doubled, service would've been slow and our meal would've been hurried along by the massive queue at the door. And well, we were lucky to have the table of 4 to ourselves whilst we were there (so thank you again to the girls), service was extremely friendly and attentive, and we were in and out so quickly, we'd hardly realised!
