Rice or Tater?
After he settled down, we toasted him with the wine. Nice and light (as the waitress assured KH), but it did leave me a little tipsy that evening. The first thing that arrived was dainty chicken liver pates on slices of bread. Came free cause we ordered the wine of the month. Our appetiser proper was the ikageso frito-- deep-fried squid tentacles in squid ink flavoured flour. Really nothing much to look at, but really a nice bite. The batter was so crispy and light and the squid was not overdone. Yummy. For mains, I got the Madai Bacon Saute, which translates to red snapper with yuzu sauce. I didn't see the bacon though, so not sure if I ate the right thing! KH ordered the jamon iberico. Looked like a plate of mini keropok lekor. Too salty for my liking and I'm Cantonese! Tater took the Lamb Tagliatele. Didn't steal from his plate, so I can't comment, but he says it was good (or he would say food tastes better in the company of cute guys XD). Portions weren't large, so we ordered another dish to share. Delicious clam broth with thinly-sliced pork belly and eringii. To wrap things up, we ordered the Dolce Misto-- a sampler of four desserts in one box. Value for money! We got creme brulee, raspberry sorbet, red bean and green tea cake.
Would definitelt go back to order their wagyu steak. Seemed like a popular order with the other guests. Bid Tater goodbye went off to the monorail. KH was definitely a little frisky after the wine. Definitely need to ply him with more wine in the future. Hehehe.
P.S.: The small toilet cubicle was fully-mirrored on all sides letting you see how you pee from all sides. Kinky.
