And then we came to my favorite... BREAD!!! nice and warm... that's what bread should always be served at. Along with some olive oil and ... hmmm this is not the usual balsamic vinegar we usually have... it's like the thick thick dark soya sauce which is slightly sweet... I really like this than the normal watery type... It's a pity I was only able to get a dessert spoonful of it, even after asking for more. Maybe I should try this at home when I have guests over.
Pan Seared Duck Foie GrasPoached pear, Almond Ravioli with Light Amaretto Sauce
Force fed might they be... won't take away my adoration for this delicious part of a duck. Though I did not really pay attention to how the duck or goose were forced fed till I got hooked to this delicious part of them, I do not agree not in giving it up just yet. I would definitely give it up, should one tell me that these are wild ducks or geese being captured and forced fed. But these animals are bred to be killed as food for us. So.... I would bow and kiss ur web feet the next time I go to a chinese restaurant for duck web, till then... the foie gras is good enough to think of the guilt later. With a rather enjoyable foie gras, I can easily forgive the rather dry ravioli. Oh, I would not say this is a perfect piece of liver... just because I prefer mine with more sweet sauce. :p
A spoonful of Oven - baked Ricotta Spinach Cannelloni ....
Don't u feel hungry... this was supposed to be my friend's main... but she was swinging this in front of my eyes.... who would be able to resist... esp a ugly pig who loooooooooooooove spinach almost anything... :P
Seeing that she has such a "big" portion of it... I decided to get a few spoonfuls... "just to taste." :)
Absolutely delicious... please ignore the comment if u are not a spinach person.... but how can anyone not like spinach... :p Was regretting I decided to go for the set meal... maybe the next time, I will get this ALL TO MYSELF.
Cod Fillet with Basil Risotto
I guess I am an Asian thru and thru... I love my carbo, esp the rice. The Basil Risotto was the one that drew me to this dish... they was supposed to be serving another fish.. Red mullet, but they do not have it... so they changed it to a Cod Fillet instead. Cod is a great fish to have.... I did not enjoy this as much as I thought I would. The flavour of the risotto wasn't to my taste... and the cod has a slight fishy taste to it. I been spolit lately by my mom's frequent visits to the fish market, that I do not like to have fishes that had fishy taste. But I was hungry.....
Panna Cotta with Fruit Salad
For no better choices, I chose Panna Cotta. But this was great!! how great? Not telling. Just go and give it a try :D I had to say the vanilla seeds at the bottom of the cup is a good sign.
Tirasmisu with iced cappuccino
Dessert with coffee would never tempt me!!! even if it's ice cream! :p
All in all, I think it is a reasonable portion of reasonable food for reasonable price @ a good location. Definitely a "should try it out" place :D
