MmMm FOOD…! (and fam)

I’ve been having such good food the last few days – Saturday was Grissini (scroll down for Grissini info) at the Grand Hyatt, where I had a seriously melt-in-your mouth delightful beef carpaccio w/rocket (or arugula, depending what country you’re from) and slivers of parmesan, and for my entree had a pesto lasagne. I’m not normally a huge fan of lasagne, but I do love pesto, and this one came in a little clay dish, and each layer was thin and delicate, piping hot and just totally scrumptious, for lack of a better word! I shared the tiramisu for dessert but it was only ok, too creamy for me personally.

Sunday dinner was at Spoon at the Intercontinental (where that weird spork is from in the photo above), and I had the duck foie gras with this ginger sauce and a herb salad that came on the side. It was SO GOOD. I don’t even like ginger, but the sauce was delish with the foie gras, and it was quite a large piece and 2/3rds of the way through I had to pause because I felt like I was gonna have a heart attack. Entree was the shell pasta with ham and truffle in some sort of cream sauce, which was also really good (I love truffles, and I love cream sauce for pastas), but not exactly spectacular (then again, how spectacular can pasta really be?). 

Last night dinner was at Cafe Deco on the Peak – not exactly fine dining, but it was still really yum. Had a Caesar salad to start (nothing special, but I really wanted salad suddenly last night) and then ordered the truffle + prosciutto pizza that also had rocket/arugula on top and some parmesan cheese. Seriously, if you ever go to Cafe Deco I highly recommend it.  SO GOOD. Sadly I couldn’t finish it, even though I tried really hard to! 😦 lol (We were at the Peak to show my cousin’s friend the view, but unfortunately yesterday was raining cats and dogs the entire day and at night, and the Peak was foggier than ever. From the restaurant we could barely even see across the street to the Peak Tower!)

Also sadly, I didn’t take any pics. I probably should have, although I would have felt kinda self-conscious. LoL

(No, Andre, I’m not fat. Psh.)

On a totally different note, the lil sis, my parents, and my grandma are all arriving later today! As fun as it was having the apt to myself, I’m excited for everyone to get back. I’m sure home will be really very noisy (lil sis has a tendency to sing and dance around the house, or my dad will be chasing her around the furniture as she runs away squealing “SAVE ME! SAVE ME!” lol) but it’s gonna be so much fun. 🙂 I love my fam!
