Saturday was our third wedding anniversary. Only our third anniversary. That makes it a mere 6 years since we met. Suddenly it seems like time is passing so slowly. I suppose it is a good thing!

So in effort to make it a yearly pilgrimage, we went for dinner at Broth, located at Duxton Hill. We had a wonderful time talking. Even though most of it was silly banter, it was nice to talk because we don't do it very often. Needless to say, the meal was wonderful. I am quite infatuated with this restaurant and think it's great fun to keep it to a yearly affair. Every year that we go, the menu is different. And it never disappoints. The Husband probably feels a little different but I know I enjoyed myself a lot. Even without wine!

Appetiser 1: Baby Spinach & Portobello Mushrooms with Sundried Tomatoes and Fried Onions

A really refreshing appetiser with the mushrooms served raw and the fried onions added an interesting flavour to the dish.

Appetiser 2: Foie Gras with Potato Scallop and Apple Sauce

There is just something about pan fried foie gras and apple sauce. They balance each other out perfectly and it is the most decadent of flavours. The potato scallop was really yummy because it was crispy on the outside and the was nicely tender inside. Potatoes rock! Oh, and the truffles on top are just heavenly!

Main Course: Braised Veal Cheeks

The Husband's choice of main course after deciding against the red goat curry pie. Tasty and tender, the meat melts in your mouth and the was not overpowered with the flavour of the sauce. Still a hearty dish!

Main Course: Linguine with Sliced Beef in Tomato Sauce

Obviously, I ordered this. It was the best of both worlds! Pasta and the meat I need to eat for the sake of the baby. Delicious but the sauce could do with a little less sugar. It was a huge plate with many slices of beef. Really filled me up there!

Dessert: Sticky Date Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce and Vanilla Ice Cream

Ah! What else but the most awesome sticky date pudding ever! Honestly, I have never tasted any other that is better than this. I hope there is someone out there who feels the same way as I do because it is perfect! The chocolate wordings is a trend that The Husband started when we celebrated our anniversary at Broth during a year while we were still dating. And it shall be our little own cringe-worthy "thing".

To my dearest husband and love of my life,

I love you. ***
