Last Saturday, Scotch and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. We decided to get married when we found out that Scotch was getting transferred to Dubai for work. Getting married meant that my residence visa, health insurance, etc wouldn’t be an issue if I decided not to work.
We chose the 5th anniversary of our first date as the special day. Sad to say that we haven’t printed a single wedding photo yet for framing. I’ll get around to it…eventually.
To celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary, we went to Vu’s at Emirates Towers. Of course, we started of with some bubbly 🙂
Here are photos of our meal:
“CRAB” – My starter of snow crab cannellone, caramelized chicken wings, orange flavored bisque, morels foam:
“TUNA & SCAMPI” – Scotch’s starter of butter poached scampi and toro roulade, avocado bavarois, yuzu jelly, oriental dressing:
Scotch ordered his favorite wine – a Barolo:
“WAGYU ASSIETTE” – My entree of seared tenderloin, braised cheek and herbs pastilla, mash potato, asian rataouille:
“LAMB LOIN” – Scotch’s entree of soy marinated lamb, apple compote, caramelized baby onions, apple puree porcini mushrooms and lamb jus:
We were given a free dessert in honor of our anniversary and I have to say that it was very very good! Which is saying a lot because I don’t like dessert (other than creme brulee and chocolate soufles). It was just the right balance of sweet and bitter:
The food was all excellent! And in case you think I have a photgraphic memory to be able to remember what we ate, word-for-word, I better dispel that thought right now by saying that I asked for a menu to take home. Maybe I’ll get around to framing it one day.
