Pre-Vdate at Le Amoretto

February 11, 2013

I didn't know that we were gonna dine here because I just accompanied hubby who has a business meeting at Le Amoretto. But lucky me- I got treated to an early Valentine's Day date. Also, this is one of those few times that hubby and I got to spend some "only-us" time because daughter has school the following day and she has tons of homework to do so she chose to stay home (alone) instead. Thank you, teachers! :D


Iced-Mocha. Hubby's default order (everytime/everywhere). Looks deliciously but I am not a coffee drinker. I just love the smell of coffee. Besides, I get sleepy when I drink coffee. No kidding. Btw, I love the pink carnation and mums. I think that roses on Valentine's Day are overrated.  




Salmon Cream Spinach Pasta. Perfect! The salmon was grilled just right so it was still juicy. The cream doesn't overpower the taste of the salmon and the pasta was al dente. I'm very happy.


Seafood Pizza. It's good because the seafood are not the frozen-type but I wish they would change the cheese. I'm betting they used "Eden" cheese. 



Early birds. No one's around yet when we arrived. We got to choose a nice table that has the best view of the whole restaurant.   



Gotcha! Sweet love-birds. ;)

And because we already had pizza and pasta, I thought that that's the end of our "romantic" dinner. Little did I know that there's more to come. A 5-course meal. Yum! 

N.B. I love pizza so it belongs to "my" romantic food category.  



Seaweed Salad. At first, I thought that its kimchi so I didn't touch the salad only until after hubby ate his and exclaimed that its delicious. Curiousity got me so I had a small portion, then another small portion, and another ... until the salad's all gone. Wow! That was good. And I even forgot to squeeze the lemon. I don't know what kind of seaweed I ate but it doesn't taste like the sea- hahaha.   



Mushroom Soup With Dumplings. Nevermind. Not the best tasting soup. Just something to warm the stomach.    



Chili Prawns On A Bed Of Crispy Noodles. The prawns were huge, and fresh and nicely cooked. As for the noodles, I was hesitant to taste it at first since its white and I thought its uncooked. Sorry, chef! I should've trusted you more. The tastesless but otherwise crispy noodles was yummy when paired with the chili prawns. Presentation-wise, it doesn't look appealing but believe me when I say its yum yum yum. Need I say more? YUMMY!!! 



Beef Stew. I love the food styling of this dish but I don't like the too common name. They should've been more creative since this is the main course. Beef was tender but not tender tender. Still, it was tender and I am not complaining since I really enjoyed this dish. Also, at first glance, I felt sad because of the small beef portion and two pieces of potatoes, two pieces of carrots and two pieces of broccolli. But I was wrong (again) because I wasn't able to finish this. Its too filling. No kidding. Hubby mentioned that daughter would love this dish. Awwww. I miss daughter all of a sudden. Hahaha. Now I'm the one with separation anxiety.   


Blueberry Cheesecake. Just okay. Not exciting. I don't know why the chef made some red spiderwed design. Maybe a scary Valentine? 


So here's wishing everyone lots of  L-O-V-E on Valentine's Day. Mwah !!!!!!!!


Le Amoretto is located at the 2F of Networld Hotel in Roxas Boulevard cor. Buendia. The hotel has a casino and frequented by the Japanese since it is partly owned by a Japanese gentleman.
