moonshadows

the weather has been warming up & it's been really warm here in southern california
when the weather is good, where do you guys like to go?
for me, it's the beach!
but since i am not much of an outdoor-activities-kind-of-a-girl, my favorite thing to do is to head out to restaurants that are right by the ocean

here, we have moonshadows in malibu
which became the lucky spot for one of my birthday dinners this year-

if you want to be close to the ocean, this is the perfect spot as you can smell the ocean & even feel the ocean mist on your body outside ;)
since it was cloudy and sprinkling that day, we didn't get to see the sunset...oh, there is always next time!


as far as their food goes, there are plenty to choose from their menu
& they were tasty, especially my 'special-of-the-day pasta'!

flash fried calamari
-with chipotle aioli
roasted organic red & yellow beet salad
-napa valley goat cheese, caramelized apples,

frisee, toasted walnuts, beet-walnut vinaigrett
mediterranean herbed marinated free range chicken
-sauteed corn & oyster mushrooms, 

truffled chicken demi-glace, 
yukon gold mashed potatoes

pan seared east coast sea scallops
-fresh tomatoes, frisee, shitake mushrooms, lemon dressing
special of the day
losbter linguini

after the meal, i got my favorite cupcakes from susie cakes in my favorite flavors: red velvet & vanilla!
my dear friend literally raced from the tea party to the bakery in 10minutes in order to pick these up before the bakery closed! aww~

cupcakes from susie cakes

i am definitely coming back here during summer time to sit out & enjoy the warmth while dining

i am now happilyfull ♥ 
see you on my next adventure!
