Welcoming the New Year at Cru Steakhouse, Manila Marriott

One evening while we were stuck in traffic, Mickey and I reminisced about how we went on dating at fine dining restaurants before.  Some of them already closed, we then laughed out loud after we realized that it was a long time since we went to one.  Don't you just love it when you coincidentally receive a text that gets your heart racing?  That's exactly what happened when I got a text from Michelle Garcia, Director for Marketing Communications at Manila Marriott Hotel, inviting me and Mickey for dinner at Cru Steakhouse!  Of course, you never say no to that kind of an invitation.

This photo was taken a right at the entrance of Cru Steakhouse.  Each time I look at it, it reminds me of our early days of dating.  It brings a very big smile to my face.   


Cru Steakhouse recently renovated and revamped the menu.  Of course, some favorites stayed on the menu.  On this special night to celebrate and welcome the New Year that is about to come, let me share with you what Mickey and I ordered off the menu:
