Date Night | Big Easy

The clocks are going back soon, which means those cold dark winter evenings are creeping up on us. This is my favourite time of year for warm intimate date nights, and so this post is all about one of my favourite date nights from last winter at Big Easy in Covent Gardens.

As some of you will know from reading previous blog posts, I have a date night list full of ideas and places for us. Last year we decided on Big Easy for one of our winter date nights, we had this amazing lobster at Sea Palace in Amsterdam and so we was adamant we wanted lobster again.

I booked our table online in advance, and I’m so glad we did because the place was so busy and there was queues going on forever to get in. We decided on the fresh lobster meal deal for main, this includes a 1 pound lobster with chips and a salad with a free brew, glass of Prosecco or slushie cocktail all for £20. We both had the slushie cocktails with our main, however I did wish I had chosen a glass of Prosecco instead as the cocktail slushie wasn’t much like a cocktail at all. We also shared the grand appetiser for 2 which was a huge dish of voodoo wings, pit smoked bar bq wings, bar bq chopped rib tips, tenders hush puppies, calamari, deep friend jumbo shrimp.

The food was absolutely unreal, and was so filling. The service was incredible considering how busy it was, and the waiters made sure that we were happy with our food and was enjoying our experience at Big Easy. I would definitely recommend Big Easy over Burger & Lobster for those of you that want to try somewhere with good lobster. But the best seafood place of them all is definitely Fat Crab, so add those two to your own date night list’s.

If you guys have any date night suggestions please comment below. And please have a great weekend!

Date Night | My Bloomroom Birthday Dinner

From the second we booked our table in The Bloomroom at P.F. Chang’s I was so excited to do a blog post about it, and here it is…

I came across The Bloomroom at P.F. Chang’s Asian Table on Instagram last month when it first launched. The menu looked incredible, the cocktails looked amazing and the room itself looked insanely beautiful. After Prettylittlething  held their Spring Fling 2018 in The Bloomroom, we decided to book a table before it became fully booked. I knew that the restaurant only had the room open until May 13th, and so we decided that this would be my early birthday dinner.

As you can see from all the pictures on my Instagram, I had the best time. From the second we got there the service was spectacular, shockingly we arrived an hour early, however they managed to get us seated at our table straight away. I say shockingly because I always make us late on our date nights. The Bloomroom is downstairs in the Pastry Lab, it had such an intimate feel to it and was perfectly decorated with a romantic touch.

We ordered the dynamite shrimp for starters, with chilli jam wings and crispy calamari. The shrimp was definitely our favourite, I would go back again just to have that.

For main we shared the Mongolian beef and the grilled Asian salmon with Lo mein noodles and Sichuan green beans. The Mongolian beef went so well with the noodles and beans and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. I can honestly say this was the best Asian food I’ve ever had. To drink we tried a few different cocktails, we had a Sakura dream, an Azure, An Umeshu Cobbler and a Miyamoto. The Miyamoto was not to my acquired taste at all and was very bitter, but I loved the Sakura dream cocktail from The Bloomroom menu and I would’ve loved to have tried the mocktail version of it, the Sakura cooler. Lastly we shared a Pink Paradise for dessert, which was a large macaroon filled with raspberries and matcha ganache and rose ice cream. By this point my belly was so full, but it was the perfect amount to just squeeze in and it was the perfect ending to a delicious meal.

I will definitely be returning to P.F. Chang’s Asian Table, even if The Bloomroom isn’t there, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Asian food. The price for what you get is very good, the staff are so helpful and friendly and the service is great. I really did have the best early birthday dinner, and now I cannot wait for all my birthday celebrations to come.
