Chong was not much better with her 2 prawns - though they were extremely fresh and crunchy but again....its TWO prawns.. We kinda need greater quantities to appreciate the food, French portions are miniscule!
Char-grilled US grain-fed Ribeye, confit of onion
This was the Chef's creation and this was Chong's - she had a choice between the Ribeye and the cordon bleu. But she decided to go for the steak after all (cos I was pushing her =P) and we were glad we did cos it was a great slab of meat - simply grilled but it had such a great smokey flavour to it. No fancy sauces but it was so good in its meat juices it was just divine, just as a steak should be. I ate most of her confit it was really yummily soaked in the meat juices!
I actually wanted to go for the carbonara but requested to change the meat - and the waiter suggested either doing the pasta with prawns or cod fish - I chose the latter, and oh boy this is really good! I'm getting to like angel hair pasta - the other one i really enjoyed was the Sakura Ebi Cappelini at Iggy's. Again this was a simple dish executed perfectly - the pasta al dente, and tossed lightly in olive oil and every strand was just delicious - the condiments enhancing every bite. And the cod fish was so smooth and tasty! We both really liked this.
Both the Ribeye and the pasta are available on the ala carte menu as well.
This was really sweet - but the creme caramel was really smooth and delicious. One queer thing was that the caramel in mine was much darker than Chong's. Maybe it was more concentrated caramel goodness! This did us in, we were super full after this super sugar loaded dessert.Petit Fours
This was a dark chocolate slab, a magdeleine-looking sugar coated orangey pastry, and a chocolate-centred thin cookie. We really like the cookie cos it had a fluidy chocolate centre, and the dark chocolate was our next favourite. The middle one was quite a disaster.
I wanted a flat-white but they didnt have it so they served us Latte...
I must say that the service here is impeccable - when the waiter noticed that I didn't finish my Latte (now I don't really dare to finish a coffee entirely cos of the massive nausea from the Coffee Bean breakfast set), he asked whether I wanted to change my coffee. Also, when I wanted to change the meats in my carbonara, he actually made an effort to ask Chef Gunther himself - they were so flexible they allowed me to change the entire pasta itself - he did it so differently, just to cater to my choice of pasta. And of cos, Chef Gunther also came out to greet us - we were one of the last people to leave.
We really had a good meal - but straight after that I was still hungry I ate 2 peanut pancakes from Jollibean while I was at Daiso at PS! I know this is a rather anti-climatic end to the meal but I can't seem to downsize my appetite!
