Valentine’s Day at Kokobana

I was expecting that we’re just gonna eat out fast, go home and watch Netflix with beers just like all the other Valentine’s Day that we had. But we didn’t.

My husband reserved a table for two at Kokobana along with their Valentine’s Day Dinner special, thinking that it was our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple. 😀

We were welcomed by Kokobana’s Koko Lovers Cocktail with a cute heart-shaped watermelon and tortilla chips with guacamole. I don’t know what they call the shrimp-thing with pomelo seeds, but that was delicious, too.

The starter or appetizer were chicken salad and creamy chicken soup. I’m telling you, these were delish. I liked the soup a lot.

The main course was a lot, I would say. The sizzling plate was almost good for two, I wished they put more tortillas. The Bangbang fish was scrumptious.

And for the dessert, we had a warm chocolate cake topped with molten chocolate and whipped cream, ice cream and strawberry on the side. Also, a Kokobana version of churros.

The ambience was romantic with lots of yellow lights and a bit cold because it’s an open restaurant. The crew were really accommodating, they made sure we have everything we need. I think the price was quite reasonable for such a delightful dinner on this special occasion.

This was really exciting for me because I am not the fancy-dinner type of person. So, waiting for the next course and thinking what it would taste like was a bit of a challenge. The three-course meal was almost two and a half hour, well, that’s really new for us. Haha. 😛

Happy ❤️ Day everyone!

    It is good to do things differently sometimes. Some people say that variety is the spice of life while some others say that normal is boring.
    It is good to know that the treat turned out lovely.
    I love the pictures and the way you narrated the entire event.
    Nice post!
