It was that time of the year again.
The sister, mother and i would make a few trips to restaurants for lunch without fail in the month of May. I love it. It’s probably the only time i get to sit down with the 2 of them and have decent conversation! :)
This year, i picked Absinthe.
Did i tell you that i quite like dressing up? *grin* But not too often though.. Once a week is great! It kinda lift the spirit up and boost one self’s confidence a tiny bit — i’m mostly in comfy shorts and comfy old tees, probably that explains why eh? :P
Fr left, clockwise : Foie Gras Poêlé
(Pan-Fried Foie Gras, Warm Blinis and Morello Cherries), Duck Breast, Ravioles de Royan (Royan Cheese Ravioli, Pesto and Citrus in Light Broth), Seared Tuna with Salad.
What can i say? Almost all four of these dishes were great!
But if i must pick one to be one of my least favourite, it gotta be the ravioli. Rather mediocre if you ask me. I’d probably leave this out if i were to go again. According to my dining companions, the Foie Gras and Duck Breast were rather exceptional. If i’m not wrong, the duck breast’s sauce was yuzu?
Fr left, clockwise : King Prawns, Steaks & desserts
Sorry for the very brief dishes’ names. It has been sometime and i can’t find it on the menu online. Yikes!
Anyway, the prawns were good! If u see this on the menu, ORDER it! We were torn between the prawns and something else. In the end, i turned to one of the fabulous, friendly staff for recommendation and he said, ‘The prawns”, and gave me that wink. Heh! But yeah, seriously, it was good. I wish i didn’t have to share them. HAhaaaa!
Desserts, hmmm… no comments. HAHAA! Well, if you must know, it was not bad but it wasn’t fabulous either. :P
The Fromage Français Affinés (French Farmed French Cheese Trolley) –> TOTALLY go for it! *wink*
Will i come back here for meals? Hell yes!
