Went to Chi Cha Lounge for Valentines dinner and hookah. It was a last minute decision, but turned out to very good.

Ok so lets start with the host. I didn't catch her name, but she was very unpleasant upon arrival. If you don't like greeting people then you probably shouldn't be in that kind of work.

The food's surprisingly good, but not why you come to this lounge -- have a hookah and a mojito and chill...

Chill atmosphere, good tapas (especially that cheesy potato thing), good sangria (unusual taste with a kick of cinnamon)
