The entrance to Le Francais
The bread basket--my weakness !!
I had two of these wholemeal buns. Warm, crusty outside and soft inside. I would have been happy without anything else. Just adored them! Could have had more...but decided to save some room for the rest of the courses.
A salmon hors d'ourves-- just prefect for a mouthful.
A delicious sun-dried tomatoes consomme with seafood n cheese tortellini (Italian??). The pasta was smooth while one bite onto it the fresh prawn inside provide a crunch and sweetness - almost wantanlike (Chinese??) Loved this too. Heather had the duck -- an excellent choice. The red rosette was actually mashed beetroot - had the texture of mash potatoes and tasted good -another interesting idea to serve not so popular veg! I had the steak- requested medium rare but it came a wee bit overdone but still juicy. Didn't care much for the shredded veg. topping but love the mash and sauce.
A fish dish. Didn't get to try it, too shy to ask.. Anyway, here is the pix. Judge for yourself.We shared the fruit sherbet. Served in a most unusual dish-very space like. Four flavours-- apple, pineapple, lycee and one we both couldn't identified. We loved the apple but found the rest too sweet.
Another dessert - for someone who just couldn't resist anything chocolate..
molten choc cake served with creamy toffee ice cream and crushed nuts. Sinful but yummy...
Verdict for the night: Good food and good company combined... totally irresistible and intoxicating.
