We fell in love over food.
Our first date also marks the first time we ate at Fatty Crab in New York City’s West Village — a Malaysian restaurant that we’d eventually realize is one of our faves. We took a photo of the pork belly buns appetizer we shared that day. Little did we know that we’d eventually become a couple, create a home, get married, adopt the sweetest cats and eat our breakfasts, lunches and dinners together for eternity.
This is one of our engagement photos. We returned to the scene of our first date: Fatty Crab. At the time, the restaurant unfortunately received a B rating (fear?!), but we don’t care. The food is THAT good. Today, it has an A.
Update on January 2017: Late last year, Fatty Crab closed its doors for good. They could no longer afford the rising rates of leasing a restaurant space in Manhattan. We are utterly devastated.
