My husband and I have two wedding anniversaries that we celebrate each year. One is when we got officially married in the courthouse with our immediate families in February and the second one is when we had our wedding ceremony and reception with our friends, relatives and family in October. When we celebrated our wedding anniversary in October 2015, we went to Chart House restaurant in Redondo Beach, CA.. The Chart House is where we had our ceremony and reception. It was a nice way to remind us of our special day at the restaurant.
For dinner at the Chart House, I ordered the Coconut Crunchy Shrimp and my husband ordered the Prime Rib- Chart House Cut. The dishes were both amazing.
For dessert, we had a creme brulee with a cute little candle. It was a nice way to end our romantic evening reminding each other why we got married to each other.
For this year, we celebrated both Valentine’s Day and our wedding anniversary of our courthouse date in February. My husband decided on a classy restaurant called Chef Melba’s Bistro in Hermosa Beach, CA.. He found the place based on its Zagat reviews. What’s great about this place is that it serves very fresh ingredients based on the season so their menu changes frequently. Here are some photos of the place.
For appetizers, we ordered a Seasonal Ceviche -Lemon Criollo, Red Onion Shavings, Cilantro leaves with raw scallops. The sauce was medium heat and it added a nice spice to the scallops. The ceviche mix added a nice fresh flavor to the scallops.
For the main course, I ordered large prawns and my husband ordered lobster tail. They were both deliciously cooked. I don’t know what kind of sauce they used, but they enhanced the fresh seafood flavor.
For dinner, we actually went to a frozen yogurt place since I was craving frozen yogurt for a really long time. Anywase, I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s day as we did! 😉
