Because Valentine’s Day 2011 fell on a Monday and because both my husband and I had work on that day and our son had school, we celebrated Hearts Day two days earlier, February 12, at Chefs’ Quarter at SM Megamall Atrium.
That day was also our helper’s day off, so it was only the three of us celebrating. Having that in mind, we didn’t order much. Besides, hubby and I are on a diet, so we didn’t need too much food in our bellies. This assured us, too, that we won’t be looking for the best weight loss pills after our pre-Valentine date. We just had Memphis Barbecue and Ube Cheesecake Brulee.
This is a combination of U.S. beef back ribs and pork riblet (1,100 grams), served with marble potato and house salad. This is already a complete meal, but being rice lovers that we are, we ordered two cups of plain rice to share among the three of us. We don’t like potato that much. LOL!
The pork riblet was tender and flavorful. We liked it better than the beef ribs!
Because this family platter is ideal for 3 to 5 persons, we weren’t able to finish everything, so we had take-out food when we left.
This one was a hit with our son, especially the chocolate toppings. Hubby and I loved it, too. It’s soft, creamy and not too sweet.
On Valentine’s Day itself, we just had ice cream at home.
Where did you and your loved one/s spend Valentine’s Day?
