Anyway, the destination was the L'Heritage Restaurant at the Royale Chulan. First time for me there as well. Since it was the night before Father's Day, the place was rather empty, which was fine by me. We got the full-attention of the service staff, at the very least.
After admiring the fine decor of the place, our 9-course chef's special meal started. Here goes (some selected dishes):
Oven baked black cod, caprese salad, petit calzone
Classic style minestrone with basil pesto
Sweet and sour lemon sherbert
Stone grilled wagyu beef, spinach ravioli, fava beans and balsamic glazed
Grilled lamb chop ala Romano, herbs papardeille and gherkin sauce
As you might already know, the French portions are really small, and the trick is to savour every well-constructed dish. Which was what happened, until we got to the sherbet. Suddenly, the tummy felt full, and it was quite a task finishing the wagyu beef, lamb and the desserts.
But overall, it was a wonderful and fulfilling dinner with excellent company, of course. Man, it's great to be a dad!
