malo.

June 23, 2014

on friday night, [J] + I had date night reservations at a new restaurant downtown des moines, malo. let me just say, it was so good ..it will be hard for me to NOT want to go there every date night. the craft cocktails, the scrumptious food, the great service [ask for amelia!], and the fun atmosphere.

[J] + I determined it goes down as one of our top 10 best dinners. ever.

[we even contemplated going there for brunch the next morning, but concluded that would be a bit excessive].

the highlights besides the entire meal: [J]’s cocktail – the templeton mule, the tacos, the complimentary chips & salsa always a win in my book, the extra-large silverware, and the cheeky “cigars & coffee” dessert [which was chocolate cake balls formed into cigar shapes, and served with thee most amazing coffee gelato].

take me back, now.

happy monday.

    Im always a fan of Mexican food. At first I thought those were some sort of churros for dessert but still looks good!
