This lunch gathering supposed to be made in December last year. However with my 2 very busy friends, the date could finally made for today.
This is our 1st trial with Amber where this is introduced by a French preson. Today we spent 4 hours which is already telling you we enjoyed the afternoon extremely with its very quiet ambiance.
I was like 15 minutes earlier as of my usual pratice and was seated comfortably just outside the restaurant, however I still felt a little bit formality. Once my friend arrived and I asked to be seated to our table. Started feeling lighter when one could see the sun bimming into the restaurant.
Choices are very narrow, but frankly speaking we are looking for quality and not quantity and there are really just right for selection. But, with the never ending plates putting one by one. We felt food already right up to our foreheads.
We started with their signature appetizer
Crispy Warm whole-wheat roll & French baguette
Crispy Warm whole-wheat roll & French baguette...
Foie gras lollipop with beetroot and ginger bread with very freshy but livery rich taste+ chestnut pannacotta is nice to go with the whole wheat roll as the pannacotta was a little too salty+ croquette which is juicy warm but not that meaty as we expected from their introduction. However, the bite size is just prefect. They are equally surpisingly tasteful one after the other.
Duck Foie Gras
Duck Foie Gras...
Royal Cabanon Oyster No. 1
Royal Cabanon Oyster No. 1...
We had the Duck Foie Gras normal and served with ginerbread and not excited. And the Oyster served in a toasted blinis veloute, sea weed and cucumber which brought out the freshy but not fishy of the oysters. A good try!
White Alber Truffle Risotto
White Alber Truffle Risotto...
The Risotto which was creamy and I always enjoy risotto, but started feeling full after this. The Kobacha Squash is really a Japanese Pumpkin soup.
The Cod which I haven't had such welly made with softy touch of cod for quite sometime. Trusted the bacon wrapping spirited up the taste of the cod. The Oxtail wrapped was kind of meaty and fun to have.
