December, the time to be festive! The cold winter and snowy season here makes the atmosphere very christmas-y. Hence I went for this festive burger from McD's aptly named the Festive Deluxe meal!

Before the show:
For dinner, we went to a restaurant near the Millenium Centre - The Miller & Carter steakhouse-bar-grill.
|Fork & Knife for the steak|
The steak was grilled with herbed butter, very succulent and the fragrance from the butter just increases one's appetite! The mushroom sauce was made with sauteéed mushrooms and shallots and a white wine reduction which is then simmered. It has a rich tomato, mushroom taste and was full of flavours perfect for the steak!
|Baked Cheddar Mushroom|
The baked lobster was made of lobster meat in a classic thermidor sauce served in clamshells while the baked cheddar mushrooms were made of mushrooms in melted cheese with a crispy herbed crumbs served with garlic bread.
As I didnt taste either dish, I could not really comment on them but no complains from my friends means they are alright.
After the show:
Nothing better than a warm cuppa at below 0 Degree C.
We went to this cafe-bar called 'a shot in the dark'. A cosy, contemporary cafe popular amongst university students. The one good thing I like about this place is that it opens till very late in the night, and of course, they serve very nice coffees and food.
