The second time around, I was blanketing my love with fun <3. After seeing the beautiful Ocean Beach, I really wanted my hubby to experience it too. Besides, he has been wanting to watch the sunset with me. It was the perfect set-up to go on a date.
We feasted our eyes with beautiful scenery.
Thereafter, we feasted our tummies with a delicious meal.
We went to the Mission District in SF (also a first time for both of us) to do Dine About Town (DAT) at Nombe. Kevin ordered the 7 course dinner from the DAT menu, and I ordered from the izakaya menu.
When we drove through the Mission, we (maybe mostly me) felt a bit uneasy by the grimy street scene. And we were still a bit unsure when we walked into the restaurant; it was dim, and had a strong grilled fish smell (duh… it is an isakaya). However, once we had a taste of the food, all doubts were gone.
Everything was D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S.
My personal favorite was the bacon wrapped mochii. Savory bacon plus crispy mochii with chewey center… YUM. The DAT menu was noteworthy as well, all the flavors paired well, and every dish was executed nicely. Subtly sweet uni flavor, fresh sashimi, melt-in-the-mouth beef tongue, and comforting oxtail donburi. The dessert was the perfect ending of a fun night. The flourless chocolate cake was both decadent and airy, and the stout beer ice cream was indescribable. We would never have thought beer ice cream tasted so good.
My heart is so full of love and joy by just recounting the day. n_n
If you are in the Bay Area, be sure to take advantage of DAT!
