Hubs and I don’t get out much. Well, that’s not true. Our amazing sitter is always accommodating but most of the time our late nights are for work related events. Date night, not so much. Anyway, she had a random night free and asked if we wanted to go out and so we jumped on it!
We decided to head to Haleiwa and enjoy some drinks (well, I enjoyed them) and some tapas at Luibuenos. We’ve been there a few times with the kids but this time was just us.
We started out with a Eue Rita, a margarita made with Cabernet. Hubs suggested getting one to share and well, it was huge. Since he was driving, I took one for the team and drank it. It was amazing. I want to recreate it at home.
Then we got some calamari. I love calamari, I doubt I would eat squid if it wasn’t deep fried. This came with a spicy sauce and was so good.
Then came the cheese course. A fundido with bread on the side. Is there anything better than hot queso dip? No. There is not. If there is, do tell because this was amazing.
Finally, we got the house special, camarones ala plancha – garlic shrimp. The sauce was so good, I even ate the slaw. If there’s anything that will make you eat your vegetables is butter and garlic, am I right?
After dinner, we walked around the town square and got some ice homemade ice cream but I forgot to take pictures of it. I got salted caramel and Hubs got strawberry – with real strawberries! Anytime we can get to Haleiwa Town, I’m excited.
Have you had a date night recently? Where’d you go?
