|SMS' lunch, a cute little shu-creampuff swan|
Last weekend was fairly mellow. On Saturday, SMS and I went to Yokohama. We went to a cute cafe for lunch, if you count dessert and tea as lunch. Yum! We didn't want to eat too much because we had big plans for Cactus Burrito, an awesome SoCal-style Mexican place.

We got a course set menu, which was nice but a lot of food. Our favorite dish was the crab pasta but we could barely eat any of it since it was the last dish! We took it to-go so no waste! We also had cold appetizers. My favorite was the pulpo in green sauce (similar to chimichuri) closely followed but the bruschetta. The hot appetizers were all delicious- shrimp spring rolls (crab Rangoon style), quiche and cheese wrapped in phylo dough. Next, we had garlic chip salad which was a green salad topped with a lot of garlic chips. After that, we had a mushroom risotto which compared to the rest was just ok, but it was still pretty good. It was cooked perfectly but to my taste, seemed to be missing something seasoning-wise. Then came the awesome crab pasta followed by a small assorted dessert plate featuring grape sorbet, chocolate gelato, cake and the world's smallest creme brûlée.
It was an awesome dinner and so fun to share such great meals with my Sweetie!
