Old school delights & a french touch

Backdated posts on a couple of food places that le bf and I hopped to.
Short little dates after work, really makes the day so much more rainbowy

The excited one that keeps going: oh I remember this, last time I used to .....
and this one this one my brother and I used to...

It's so funny seeing him being so fascinated like a little child.

Popcorn chicken which the bf feels is better than KFC. It's quite deli, I must say 

Really yummy teh terik. Love the tea taste totally, and not the excessively sweet milk

More food explorations, this time for some authentic french food, one of my favourite crusines.
Business was good at this quaint alfresco french restaurant, with many Caucasians spotted, perhaps for its authenticity. 

Unfortunately we had a looooong wait of 1hour for our food to come on that faithful saturday. 

Escargots as starters, which were not to my liking imhb. It was too chewy and oily. Perhaps this is the authentic style of whipping up this delicacy. But I favour the one with garlic and buttter from Dozo more.

This was the first dish of the 3 part set dinner which I opted for.

The boy's seared dory fish fillet which were not impressive 

Duck confit, the next best alternative from the pork cheeks that I wanted that was sold out. boohoo.
Perhaps its a silver lining as the duck confit was really good! It's crispy skin and tendy flesh, yumms.
But my favourite has to be none other than the foie gras.




It's to die for. HONESTLY!

I couldn't stop nodding my head while savouring this piece of fatty goose liver, as if I'm high on ecstasy.

A real indulgence. Never had any foie gras as good as this ( the other foie gras I tried was from Saveur, which of course paled in comparison, quality and pricing wise) 

Last but not least of the set meal, thin apple tart with buttered caramel. Also the alternative for the Alaska which was sold out ):

Oh but this is really really good. Thinly sliced apples baked on top of the thin crispy pastry.
