Hey guys, this post has been delayed due to a hectic weekend, however last Thursday 26th Jan, my boyfriend and I headed over to a Vegan Evening at Garbos Uplands. I was quite nervous to go and eat out in restaurants because it used to be a weird little phobia I had growing up, along with suffering from social anxiety. When we headed over in the evening we were warmly welcomed by the waiters, and directed to our reserved seats. After much deliberation over what to choose from the menu, not used to having so much choice in places as a Vegan (Fries only please) I decided to go with the Vegan Sushi and my boyfriend went with the soup. I had butterflies and wish I had a glass of wine to be honest to calm myself down a bit, but you had to buy it by the bottle and he didn't fancy drinking. It's silly really but those people who suffer with anxiety will understand how much they can wind themselves up over nothing. I managed to finish the starters and it was actually really delicious, I have missed Sushi so much.
When we waited for mains, I think my pms got the better of me, (sorry for the tmi) but I got upset over something really small when I was talking to my boyfriend which then spoilt the whole evening for me. I couldn't get out of being in a mood, Ladies I'm sure you can relate... Anyways, I tried to eat mains and it looked delicious. I had the Sweet Potato Gnocchi with a Cheese Cream Sauce, Roasted Hazelnuts and Broccoli and the boyfriend had an Indian Pie with Lentils. He managed to eat of all his, but I didn't, which I regret because it did taste really nice! The presentation of the food was impeccable and I wish I was in a better mood to thank the Chefs at the end of the night. I didn't have desert, (which I never miss) having such a sweet tooth, I normally can't wait for pudding. By this time though, I just wanted to go home, however, we ordered a Brownie Trio and I think my boyfriend was stuffed and couldn't eat it all. He said it was really rich and flavourful. When we headed back home, we finally made up after some kisses and hugs, sometimes its all a woman wants really haha.
I'd like to thank Garbo's for the complimentary meal and hopefully I will come back again next month for a Vegan Evening, in a better mood. If your interested in trying out Vegan food, I highly recommend Garbo's in Uplands, they do the best Vegan menu's in Swansea.
