My Birthday Celebration with Hubby at Morton's Steakhouse

Hubby gave me a pleasant surprise on my birthday.  I didn't expect this as I actually told him in the afternoon that I was very tired as I had a long meeting and I just wanted to laze at home on that night :P  However, when he reached home from work, he quickly asked me to change and get ready to go out for dinner.  He said he had already made a reservation.  At first, he refused to tell me where we were going.  Finally, after my persistant nagging, he told me that we were going to Morton's Steakhouse at Mandarin Oriental Hotel.  I then told him that it would be a really expensive dinner,  probably $200 per pax, was he sure about it?  :P

They presented us the menu once we got seated and I had another surprise.  They printed "Happy Birthday, Wendy!" on the menu!  I brought back the menu after dinner.  I think this was the first time I took a restaurant's menu back.  Haha... A bit embarrassed as it was quite long and I could not hide it anywhere in my bag.  I wanted to bring this back as a momento and luckly they didn't stop me.

The onion loaf is complimentary for every table.  It was really huge but very delicious.  We were tempted to finish it all up.  Of course, we could only manage to finish half of it as we still got to leave some space for the steak!!

The waitress then presented us with a tray of various cuts of the meat.  She then went on rattling all that they served at the restaurant, eg.  the different types of steak, the seafood etc.  However, I think she talked really fast and in a weird accent that I couldn't catch most of it.  Haha...  I went back to the menu.
Half dozen of Pacific Oysters on the Half Shell ($36)
They were really quite big and "creamy"
My Single Cut Filet Mignon ($82)
** From Wikipedia:  Filet mignon (French for "cute fillet" or "dainty fillet") is a steak cut of beef taken from the tenderloin
Hubby ordered New York Strip Steak ($118)
There is a "Slightly smaller" version of the New York Strip Steak at $108.
Both steak done in "Medium"
Another surprise for me when the staff came with a slice of cake and sang me birthday song  :):)  They used their camera to help us take a photo too.

Inside the card :)  The photo that they took with their camera.
I am thankful to my hubby for this surprise birthday celebration by dragging me out of the house.  If not, I would have missed out all these.  :)
