Dinner at Ganga.
One of my absolute favorite things to do is go out to eat. I don't mind staying home and cooking, but I love trying new cuisines, exploring new towns, and having long conversations with Frank, friends, or family over dinner and drinks. Frank and I have been going out to eat quite a lot lately, which is weird since we've been trying to cut back on spending. We both got a lot of gift cards for Christmas, and I also have a bunch of coupons, Groupons, and other deals. A few nights ago, my mom treated us to a night out for helping her with some work around the house (thanks, Mom!). First we decided to get Thai at our usual place in my town, but I felt like trying something different. I suggested a Cajun restaurant I had seen near Freehold. We drove all the way down to find that the place was closed. Typical!
On our way back to the Thai place, I suggested this place called Ganga that I'd gone to with Kim once. The food was incredible! We ordered wine (white for me, red for Frank) and chicken satay for an appetizer. The manager brought us shrimp tempura with this amazing sauce on the house because we had to sit at the sushi bar. As if sitting at the sushi bar was an inconvenience or something..? Frank got sushi and sashimi and I got a Bento box with sesame chicken, and we both got soup with our meals. The bill was eighty-something dollars, which is a bit pricey but we got so much food! I brought home some food for lunch the next day, and we took some of Frank's sushi home for my mom to snack on. Well worth it, I say. The only bad part of the evening happened as soon as Frank and I left. We waddled out the door, headed towards the car, then all of a sudden WOOOOOOOOSH BOOM! Some crazy people set off (what we believe to be) a firework of some kind from another parking lot across the highway. It was absolutely terrifying. I literally ran through the rain puddles to the car, heart racing, hand on my phone in case we had to call the police. Frank tried to follow them to get their plate number, but we were too slow. It was definitely an evening I won't be forgetting any time soon.
