Valentine's Day

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day (or Singles Awareness Day if you're single). I had a wonderful time, and also just found out very good news. My internship in Hong Kong was accepted, so I will be leaving for Hong Kong in a few weeks and stay for a month. I will also be heading to NYC next weekend to hang out with my friends as well, so I have some busy times ahead!

In the day time I had an appointment to go shopping for OBEY Clothing's Spring '13 line at their warehouse. It has its perk being a former intern at times ;) At night, Tony and I had dinner reservations (of course) and decided to eat at The Globe in Garden Grove. It's a Belgian restaurant that has a regular menu and a monthly menu depending on what country they want to create a special menu on.

I'm very happy with the way my look turned out overall! I just wanted some natural looking waves for my hair, and I think I succeeded with that.

Onto the dinner!
Drinks and appetizers! I saw that The Globe had a cocktail featuring Creme de Cassis, so I asked them if they could make me a Cassis Orange. They obliged, and brought the glass of orange juice and cassis separately because they never heard of this cocktail before. I told them it's a really popular combination in Japan! Tony got a Belgian beer. For appetizers we got a large Bavarian pretzel and Belgian frites. Very authentic and delicious!

Our entrees took awhile to get to us after appetizer, but it was actually better that it did because it gave us enough time to digest our appetizers to make room for our entrees.
Tony got the Herb Stuffed Chicken. It was very Mediterranean in flavor.
I got the Short Ribs. The food was good overall but I think what really sent everything over the edge was the potatoes gratin! I can die happy knowing I ate something so delicious.

For dessert we got the Belgian waffle. It was very authentic and tasted much better than any other "Belgian waffle" you can get anywhere else. The recipe is from the owner's Belgian grandmother.

Since it was Valentine's day, they were giving out free shots of alcohol (I believe it was bourbon?) to couples at the end of the meal. We got the honey tea flavor and it was really delicious, although Tony didn't like it too much!

If anyone is in that area and has some money to spare (It's about $15-20 per entree), I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Very cozy and wonderful service.
