Valentine’s Day this year was very special as I could spend it with a very special someone <3 haha
Thank you to my lovely boyfriend who prepared everything and surprised me! Here are some snaps…
Our Pre-Valentine’s Day meal at Amerigo Vespucci in Canary Wharf, London. The food and atmosphere was really nice there. I ordered veal which was so yummy!
We took a small cruise to get across the river to our hotel.
He surprised me by booking a night at Hilton Hotel :O The room was very nice with warm lighting and a white-gold coloured theme to it.
The next day on actual Valentine’s Day, we went out to London and had more food haha!
We went to Shibuya in Leicester Square, London, a place we’ve been meaning to try for a long time! We had matcha tea, dumplings, octopus fish balls, and the specialty dessert here that we came for – Pat Bing Su!
This is the Pat Bing Su dessert – it is basically shaved ice that’s so light and soft it’s like eating fluffy ice cream <3 It is a very common dessert in South Korea and is probably growing in Asia. We ordered matcha and mango pat bing su. We really enjoyed it!
Then for dinner, we went to a restaurant that is popular for it’s Argentine steaks – Gaucho in Chancery Lane, London. If you love your steak, you have to check out this place! We ordered cocktails, starters, sirloin steak, rump steak and dessert!
The steaks were so delicious!
We ordered dessert too – dark chocolate orange torte and dulce de leche ice cream and cheesecake. They were so sweet but really good!
I had a wonderful Valentine’s Day, and I hope everyone else did too, whether you’re in a relationship or single! This day is a day to show love and appreciation to your loved ones, whoever that might be, and to enjoy each other’s company! 🙂
