On my birthday itself, I celebrated with Alex in the day and we met two other friends for dinner .
Au Petite Salut Set Lunch
It was quite difficult deciding where to go for my birthday lunch. I actually booked 3 places~~! The emerging winner was Au Petite Salut at Dempsey. I have been there once..and love love love the food there! It never failed us on Saturday :D
Love the greenery
A group has already booked the indoor dinning area for their event, hence we can only sit outdoors. It was actually nicer than sitting inside :)
We were given a table near the water feature
finished all of them..
such a sucker for bread n butter :P
We chose the Set Lunch each ( $32++)
My snail starter
Awesome! the garlic , herbs and butter~
great mix for the snails... hmmm..
He's not a fan of shell ( Mollusks) food
so it was salmon tartate for him..
My main- Beef cheeks with red wine :)
beef cheeks lying on the mashed potato and carrot on the side
I finished every single morsel
Pork shoulder stewed in wholegrain mustard
lying in a bed of creamy polenta
( Polenta is made with ground yellow or white cornmeal * ground maize*
which can be ground coarsely or finely
depending on the region and the texture desired)
How can I miss out on desserts!
He chose the choux ( sounds like shoo) buns with ice cream~
Homemade pear tart tatin served with vanilla ice cream
Found the pear a tad too sweet :P
Our lunch ended with us sipping
sub standard coffee.
It was an enjoyable lunch nevertheless!
