sukhumvit / anniversary dinner at rib room and bar, the landmark

rib room and bar

so that aside, last friday we went to rib room & bar in landmark hotel for our annual anniversary dinner. i personally didn’t think much of the view, ambiance or even the food itself but the service, i have to say, was excellent. and as you know, i take quality of service pretty seriously. they even gave us a complimentary teddy bear (which ended up being lucky’s christmas pressie), selection of chocolates (pandan chocolate was amazing) and a cheesecake to take home (which i’m actually thinking to go back to landmark to get some more. it was the best cheesecake i’ve ever had in my life.). but i so wish i hadn’t seen mr. roach roaming around the pole next to us in the middle of our meal… now that wasn’t too appetizing.

    :o Oh my, I cannot believe you actually saw a bug during your meal! Did you guys tell them, or just act discreet? lol, that happened to me before – my mom and I were trying a new restaurant and saw one climbing off the wall. We told them & they moved our table, but still – you’re right, not very appetizing lol.

    It seems like you got some great shots with the new lens!
