Love at first bite

Delicious, amazing food.  Yes, we found it!

We first walked past this restaurant and out of curiosity, we decided to give it a try.  And we fell in love with it on our first bite.

Hmmm, where do we start?

We quite like this place that we came back a couple times more at different occassions.  And tried out even more items from their menu.  It is a good place and we give them our thumbs up.

Let’s start with of course, the starters. We tried the foie gras.  Although it wasn’t prepared like the French style, the taste of the foie gras was rich and had a creamy texture.

Seafood compote


We also tried the beef tartar.  It was simply fabulous and felt like it melted right away in our mouths. You could taste the quality in every luscious bite and we never wanted it to end. Unfortunately, the soft-shell crab was a miss though – it was still chewy and rather greasy too.




Beef tartar.  This is yummy!

And for our mains, we absolutely loved them and were very happy.  Our meat had a beautiful smoky aroma and flavour – yes, they use open fire!  Steak or lamb kissed by charcoal is the best.

In fact, so are their salads – it was embraced lightly by the fire.  For that extra wow!



Even more meat

And here comes the sweet endings.  Deserts….



Ice-cold variations of home-made sorbet.


Chocolate cake


The ambience is gorgeous down to its very detail and service staff was professional and alert.  We actually booked ourselves in the first district but we were asked politely if we would go to the other outlet in the 4th.  Well, their ventilator was not working that night in the first outlet.  And when we arrived in the 4th, the reception was helpful and attentive.  We had a lot of private space to ourselves and we love it!

We would certainly come back but we must warn you, it does come with a hefty price tag.  So this isn’t your everyday restaurant – well, we don’t eat at restaurants everyday and we cook too!  But our point is, the food is fabulous!  We’ll definitely come back for even more!
