Date Night: Anniversary Style!

 It's been a pretty hectic and exciting week so far for little old me! Wednesday was my 23rd birthday and also a whole year of engagement to my other half and yesterday was an exciting day too - our anniversary!
It feels like only 5 minutes ago since we got together, but 3 long years have passed since we decided to make it official and I can honestly say they've been the best 3 years of my life so far (cringe, I know, soz gals!)

So to mark the special occasion and to prolong my birthday shenanigans, the two of us decided to celebrate with a gorgeous meal at Ogino, the Japanese restaurant in our town, which we've been dying to try out for ages! 
As a massive Wagamamas fan, I was keen to try the cuisine on a finer level and I was impressed straight away at the menu and we wasted no time in ordering the massive sharer platter to start with. I could not even try and tell you what any of the dishes were called but there was a bit of sushi, salmon and chicken on there and every bit was a good as the last!

For the main course, I opted for a dish containing crispy scallops balls, which were AMAZING - even if they did look a little rude (I'll let you use your imaginations on that one...)
Nathan went for duck which I had a little nibble on and it was equally as yummy!
Naturally I couldn't turn down the dessert menu and it took me a while to decide as the options all sounded delicious, but I finally settled on a green tea and irish coffee tiramisu and there were no regrets to be had...except maybe passing up the cocktail menu for a glass of white wine instead! I've definitely found my new favourite place to eat and it won't be the last time I visit. 

All in all, it was a lovely night with lovely company and I couldn't ask for a better way to finish my birthday celebrations and to mark our 3rd year's to hopefully another 3 and more!
