Hello dear blog! This cow has been busy with work at recent events and as usual for periods like this, I eat and sleep to regain strength and blogging will soon follow...
...like now. Moohehe.
Anyway, Boss set dinner to meet the rest of the team at Pamplemousse. It was a cosy, enjoyable dinner with very good food.
The Prix Fixe Dinner Menu ($48 for choice of main either with a starter or dessert).
It was a simple choice. This cow is not quite a sweet person...but I am savoury. ;P
For my starter, I had the Salmon- citrus marinated salmon, pamplemousse confit, Saikyo miso aioli, croutons. It was tender, smooth flesh with the delicious flavour of salmon and citrus.
The Beef "Bourguignon"- 36-hour braised short ribs, red wine, bacon, mushrooms & pearl onions, kecap manis, mashed potatoes, Guinness froth. All that spelt freakin tasty! Instead of semi-disintergrated cubes of beef, this was a whole slab decent enough to be a 180g steak. It wasn't eat-with-a-spoon tender, but tender enough with a nice bite. A little gelatinous too. I didn't quite decern the kecap manis but I guess that's the idea. The flavours all came together very nicely.
And that's what every team should strive for- synergy.
I like the uncomplicated flavours and hearty portions here. The salmon might be almost good enough to be a main for some!
