OMW bunnies, I have never- ever- ever- in my life- been so spoiled on Valentines Day!
I get all misty eyed and a lump in my throat when I think about it!!!
I got all dressed up and did my hair and make up and wore stockings and sexy underwear and all! When the Glugster there was a HUGE bouquet on the front seat and a box of chocolates!! Believe it or not I haven’t eaten any of them yet… they look so pretty! Anyhoodle, my sexy shoes were at Glug’s place and he brought them with him when he fetched me- and when I opened the box to put them on there was a Valentine’s card in the box!! It has the most amazing letter on the inside… wow…
Ahem, right. Where was I…?
So remember I said he hadn’t told me where we were going? He did tell me that there was a special Valentines menu (as I have a REALLY hard time picking something off a menu- it’s laughable).
He took me to Moyo!!! I’ve never been there!!! We were down in what Glug’s referred to as the dungeon. ALL the tables were set only for two with candle light and sprinkled rose petals. They have a woman who comes around with a big bowl and a jug of warm scented water and she sings a little song whilst you rinse your hands under the gently poured water. And the waitrons are all dressed so beautifully! The menu had several different starters including different breads, salad, roulade, tomato and coconut soup… all very cleverly served one plate at a time so we had to share the starters off the same plate! It was so cool. We even did the romantically soppy thing and fed each other the odd morsel!!!
For our entrée I had a fillet steak stuffed with oysters and topped with a backed plum… and a maize cake and sauce and veggies… wow! Glugster had a fish and prawn gassi- a curry dish served with couscous and pineapple.
Dessert was a chocolate brownie type cake with berries and ice cream!
We had our faces painted by the woman who brings her paint and brushes to your table- and it’s so cool to feel the tiny brushes gentle on your face as she concentrates. In keeping with the romantic theme of the evening, I had a heart shape painted on my cheek and Glug’s got a flower!
This restaurant is MASSIVE! Three stories! There’s a band that plays in the middle somewhere, with a fabulous saxophonist and vocalist. And we were entertained by a guitarist in the dungeon who- besides not really knowing the words to most of the songs- had a really good voice and sang solo with only his guitar to accompany him! The decor in Moyo is incredible- they have a little cognac “corner” and smoking areas and couches with beautiful glass cases to select a cigar from. Outside there are braziers with big fires burning in them. Photographs really do not do it justice at all…
When we eventually left, Glug’s bought me a feathered hat like the ones the waitrons wear! It’s SO pretty! He laughed and said he never woulda thought to buy it for me on his own…
Sheer bliss. I had such a fantastic time.
I won’t go into any detail about the rest of our night together bunnies; this is mostly a mommy-blog after all! I’ll just say that your imaginations probably won’t even scratch the surface!!!
