Waiting on the water taxi
Friday was our 27th wedding anniversary, so we decided we'd splurge on a dinner at Red Ginger
at the Phoenix. We had stayed at the Phoenix on our very first trip to San Pedro in celebration of our 25th anniversary and had our anniversary dinner at Red Ginger then, so it seemed fitting to go back again two years later. Given all the rain lately and puddly roads, we even splurged on the water taxi instead of taking our bikes. This meant that I could actually wear a dress and not arrive at the restaurant sweating and messy!
The restaurant was just as attractive and classy as we remembered, and the food every bit as good -- and a visual treat as well. I enjoyed a couple of glasses of Sauvignon Blanc, a rare treat as pricey as wine is here in San Pedro. Since it was our anniversary, they even gave us one of our desserts on the house. Thanks Red Ginger!
Our waiter told us he'd done some wedding photography in the past, so we were happy to have him to take our photo together.
Celebrating 27 years!
Complimentary plantain chips and spicy chipotle aioli came with the meal
Barry's black bean soup -- he stirred it a bit before he remembered to take a photo
I got the special - Grouper with Asian Peanut sauce. Seriously good!
Barry had cheese enchiladas, which came with a lovely large side salad
This is the same table we sat at two years ago
We shared a molten chocolate cake and caramel apple cheesecake for dessert. Very decadent!
A delightful dinner and evening!
