Eileen's Birthday Lunch : Au Petite Salut

So yes, my birthday came and went.. but the celebration is kinda still on going :P There are still a couple of friends whom I have yet to meet and still have a massage to go to! ( brother gave this present to me )

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

Bread basket
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..


Next up....
My main- Beef cheeks with red wine :)


beef cheeks lying on the mashed potato and carrot on the side
I finished every single morsel

Alex's main
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~
Delicious..


Here's mine
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!
