6 years. It seems like such a long time, but really, it doesn’t seem that long ago.
I’m talking about my wedding anniversary, ofcourse, which the hubby and I just celebrated recently :).
The downside of getting married so soon after the holidays is not having the time to properly prepare for it :(. I would have wanted to get the H a simple token, and to book a table at a nice, romantic restaurant, but unfortunately, exhaustion and back-to-work duties prevailed.
Nevertheless, I guess what is most important is that we found time within the day to celebrate our special day–just the two of us :).
For dinner, we chose to eat at Terraz, the new restaurant at the Zuellig Building. We had also considered dining at Stockton Place or at The Black Pig, but I guess the proximity of Terraz, and the lure of being able to explore the Zuellig Building won out.
Located at the 3rd floor, Terraz is operated by Raintree Restaurants, the same company that owns and operates Chelsea, Stella, Momo, Rocket Room, Mr. Jones and Saboten.
I found the ambience to be very casual, bright and inviting, with clean and streamlined furnishings that were quite comfortable to sit on :).
Here is what we had for dinner :
I decided on the freshly made pappardelle pasta with arugula and grilled chicken, while the hubby got the pork ribs “bento”, with bibimbap rice and steamed vegetables.
Simple, but yummy food :). I just wish the slivers of grilled chicken on my dish were a bit bigger, although the pasta was already quite substantial and filling :).
For dessert, we had the Ube Tres Leches with Sago (tapioca pearls) on top. We originally wanted The Impossible Cake which is Chocolate Cake with a layer of leche flan, but opted for something we thought to be healthier. Hahaha! The cake itself was okay–light and not too sweet–but I thought the sago as a topping was a bit strange. It did not add much to the dessert, so I actually just stopped eating it altogether.
Terraz has simple and good food, but to be honest, it pales a bit in comparison to its sister resturants. We enjoyed our food, nevertheless, although maybe we’ll try a different dessert next time :).
So that’s how the hubby and I celebrated our anniversary. Just a quick, quiet dinner to mark the passing of 6 good years :). Mental note to self to start planning our celebration much, much earlier. Hopefully we can even plan an out-of-town getaway next time! 🙂
