Ok, remember this post? Well, we went back there for our Valentine’s Day dinner. Let me start off by saying how lucky Nate was to have Valentine’s Day off of work. That hasn’t happened since our first Valentine’s back in 2004! Wow, that sentence just made me feel old.
If you are looking for an adventurous meal with great service, do yourself a favor and go to Machu Picchu. It would be awesome for a double date as well! I didn’t take a picture of the ceviche last time because I was too busy scarfing it down, so here it is:
Ceviche mixto – A great combination of fish and shell fish cooked and marinated in Leche de Tigre, red onions, cilantro, served in the traditional style Peruvian white corn, sweet yam.
I was literally, spooning the Leche de Tigre into my mouth. When the waitress came to check on us and asked if we were finished with our appetizer, I jokingly told her no and it would be easier if they would just bring me a cup. She got really excited and said that’s what she does at home! But this restaurant had tablecloths, so I had to behave and pass on the cup.
What does tablecloths have to do with anything? Well, early on in our dating years, I had terrible table manners and this really annoyed Nate. I knew perfectly well what the correct table manners were, but I thought life was too short to be prim and proper all the time. Nate was convinced I had no clue how to have good manners. So we bet each other that I could/could not have perfect manners for 1 dinner date. If I had perfect manners, I could act how ever I wanted in a restaurant as long as it didn’t have tablecloths. If my manners slipped even for 1 second, if my elbow so much as touched the table top, I would have to have good manners at EVERY single meal! I won 🙂
