London Highlights 2

Tuesday, 11 January 2011

Another very special moment for Kings and I while in London, was the night we went to The Blue Elephant in Fulham, London. For our first dinner date in 2006, Kingsley made reservations for us here and wined and dined me. I wanted to go back during this trip and instead of being incredibly nervous, enjoy the romance with each other again.

The Blue Elephant has restaurants in London, Thailand, Paris, India and several other countries and cities. The decor and atmosphere is impressive. Indoors, patrons are surprised by a live jungle with a sort of "river" running through. The greenery, silvery koi fish and orchids on the tables impressed me again.

Kings and I had a romantic table by the water and toasted with a glass of champagne. We selected a bottle of vintage Cloof Pinotage from South Africa and our waiter brought out a chef's complimentary 1st course of a Thai asparagus soup and mango won ton. Delicious! For our appetizer, we ordered a dual portion of the chef's choice Thai sampler.

Kingsley ordered the beef panang and I went with my favorite, pad thai.

While dining, we shared memories of the previous four year together. Time flies and we are so thankful to have found one another. While no relationship is perfect, we are lucky to share a love for travel, good food and wine, cultural experiences, authentic music and laughter.

Here's to the next four years and more chances for Kingsley to show off for his bride (heehee). I felt very special on our evening out. He even purchased The Blue Elephant cookbook for me so we can make our own meals together remembering where it all began in London.
