The Fireplace at Hyatt, A Fourth Time ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

You know how much I love The Fireplace. You can read about my obsession here, here and here.

And then there are the times when I left my camera at home, occasions wherein shooting away at food is deemed impolite, times when I was so engrossed with my steak I found it too painful to pause and take photos…

And times when I was so engrossed with my hot date I couldn’t bear to take my eyes off him.

Yeah, whatever.

It’s been a while since my last visit, so I’m taking pictures of tonight’s dishes. (My camera is ecstatic!)

As always, from bread to dessert, everything is perfect.

And I have my Fireplace all-time favorites:

Tiffi and Edi share an order, Auntie BR, like me, has one to herself.
(Auntie BR, what ever happened to our salad dinner???)

We eat food, food, food.

We talk food, food, food.

Such a wonderful Tuesday night.
