I know it's not a huge amount of time and there are so many couples out there that have been together for 10+ years, but we aren't there just yet, and do you know what? Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favorite! (might have borrowed that from a little something I saw on Pinterest). Anyway, Tuesday marked our 4th year together (where did the time go?) and that deserved a little celebration. Which is the reason I was not up to facing the world yesterday, but enough about that, let's go to Floridita!
I have so many restaurants I want to go to in London it all becomes a little overwhelming. So when the husband-to-be suggested Floridita, it sounded familiar. Mostly because it was, as it was one of the 200-ish restaurants on my to do list. I don't think I have had Cuban food before so it was time to give it a try. I can never remember what we ate, but I definitely started with cevice and had chicken for my main. I can remember that it tasted good, good enough to want dessert after.
The cool thing about Floridita is the live music that changes every night. We were treated to Kai's Cats all evening and it was absolutely lovely. When do you have someone almost serenading you while eating your dinner? Watching The Voice while eating in front of the TV doesn't count... It was decided that we would stay for dessert so we could catch the rest of the entertainment, and the surprise act we were promised when we sat down.
Desert was so so, as in I ate it all but I wouldn't order it again since it didn't blow my mind. And I know desserts can have the mind-blowing quality if they are done well. And the surprise we were promised? A stripper. No, really! She was classy though, but it was clear from the start where we were heading and suddenly there was woman wearing panties and nipple tassels on the stage. Not want I expected, but honestly the only time I have encountered a stripper, so now that can be ticked of the bucket list.
I'm Christine and I currently live in London with my husband where I do my best to go to as many restaurants as possible, bake, DIY and occasionally let my hair down and go to a museum. x
