Rain Forest Cafe

When I first move to the United States in year 2002 my sister took me to Rain Forest Cafe in Mall of American, Minneapolis.  I thought this place was pretty cool and I always wanted to go back there especially with the hubs. We never made it there!

So when we moved down here to Texas and I saw Rain Forest Cafe again I always wanted to go there again with him but the wait for a table is forever long. Last Sunday hubs and I decided to take our little guy shopping and since we were there so early there was no waiting at all and we took the opportunity to dine there.

The interior is really nice, cool and calm. They make thunder noise every 30 minutes and the animals move then too. Lots of aquarium with lots of different type of fish and even a water fall inside too. Lucky my baby didn't cry like some when the thunder comes out. He cried when we hired someone to make a ballon for him because they were trying to blow the ballon up. lol. We asked the guy to make a dog for him and within seconds he undid his ballon!! What a waste of our money!

I started my meal with a clam chowder soup which was really yummy! Making me crave for it just thinking about it. Taste so different from the can ones! Hubby had a Cesar Salad which I forgot to take a picture of it! Lol

For our main meal I had a pastalaya or something like that. It was suppose to be a spicy pasta with sausage, chicken, shrimp and some vegetables. It was ok nothing to shout about. I actually regret getting this because it was not something I love but would just eat it since is not horrible. It was not bad but it was not something I expected. It also came with their bread which was pretty good but it was slightly oily and so hubs and I didn't eat much of our bread. 

Because I ordered the pasta and it was suppose to be slightly spicy hubby decided to order the fish and chips so that he can share it with our little guy. The fish and chips was pretty good but our little guy didn't even eat much of it so he could have actually ordered something he wanted instead of fried fish. 

I wanted some fries so we ordered a side of fries and instead of chips with hub's fish he got their mashed potatoes instead which tasted very good I would say! I love their fries too! Our little man truly enjoyed the fries and he actually loved dipping the fries with ketchup! At 19 months he now knows how to point at the ketchup and demand ketchup with his fries. Kids now a days you don't need to teach them at all! They just see what you do and learn from you!!

The bill came out to $60 plus without tip for 2 adults and a toddler. We would definitely come back here again sometime in the future if there is not a long line again.

Happy 2013

I figure I should blog before we are too much into 2013. I am not going to give any more excuses or explanation on why am I not blogging more. Every time I promise myself I will blog more and that don't happen and there are so many started post I have in my save folder.  I will just try my very best to blog more that's all I can do.

2012 flew by so very quick for me. I've had ups and downs but the best part is having my little one and being able to be with him all the time is one of god's blessing .  I am so fortunate that I get to spend time with my little guy all the time. He's growing so quickly and I am missing every moment of it already! 

I cannot believe about a year ago we were just in Malaysia and Australia. Those were one of the best memories I can have with my little one. The love and attention he got from family and friends is priceless. I can never ask for better family and friends. 

Let's just hope 2013 will be a better year for me. Let's hope that the bad stuff that happen to me/my family will not repeat this year. Let's hope that nosy people will actually leave us alone and not try and start anything for my family!

Cheers to all and hope everyone have a great new year ahead!
