Valentine’s Day for us is just an excuse to eat ALL the food we want! We took a trip out to San Gabriel and tried out a new (to us) Vietnamese restaurant called Golden Deli. We didn’t realize what crazy traffic there would be though, and it took us nearly 1.5 hours to get there. By that time, we were starving and we were this close to giving in and just eating anywhere (the McDonald’s we were passing by were starting to look pretty darn good).
I’m glad we held out, though. Once we got there, we ordered and were brought our food within minutes. It was fresh and delicious! We started off with some crispy egg rolls, and then our entrees followed shortly after. Bun rieu for me, and rare steak pho for Mike. We also had to get my favorite dessert drink, Che Ba Mau. we left the restaurant with extremely full and satisfied tummies.
For dinner, we decided eat in to avoid the crazy crowds (Valentine’s Day on a Friday night does not bode well). We cooked up some steak, potato balls and veggies for our meal, and topped it off with apple pastries with some Dulce du Leche ice cream from Fosselman’s! All in all, a very successful dinner.
