Summerlicious 2010

Went to quite a few restaurants for summerlicious this year. It was a little damaging to my wallet, but well worth it!


Bigeye Tuna Tartare & Spicy Sopressata 
cracked olives, garlic grissini, arugula, lemon and Sicilian organic extra virgin olive oil

Oops, I'm contributing to the extinction of another species, but it was delicious


Grilled Top Sirloin Fettina
charred onion, heirloom tomato and rocket salad with crumbled Gorgonzola

Nice, pounded down, well-done steak


Chocolate Toffee Crunch Cheesecake
dulce de leche cream

Tasted a lot more like mousse than cheesecake.

Senses! Flowers


charred Kobe flank steak and chilled soba noodle salad, pickled vegetables

This was delish! But we had our doubts that this was actually Kobe beef


pan-roasted citrus free range chicken breast, citrus segments, summer sprout mix salad, citrus-honey-mustard dressing

The chicken was super tender, but a bit flavourless


pan-seared bacon wrapped monkfish medallions, Vodka shiitake mushroom tomato sauce

good but not spectacular


roasted new zealand lamb chops, charred vegetable tian tower, lemon thyme balsamic vinaigrette

Yum! the lamb was perfectly cooked and flavoured


warm cherry crème brulee and flambéed cherries

less creme, more brulee coz its served on a plate


peach tart with vanilla ice cream

peach tart was disappointing, tasted like mooncakes. icecream too =_=


White Chocolate cheesecake

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ♥

(forgot to bring camera to Bymark, so dont have pics of that)

Far Niente

Panko Crusted Shrimp and Haddock Croquette
Corn, Tomato and Green Onion Salsa, Chili Caper Mayo

Delicious!!!! ♥ absolutely perfect. crispy on the outside and soft and smooth on the inside filled with haddock and potato

Far Niente

Grilled Top Sirloin Steak
Fontina Cheese and Truffled Sour Cream Baked Potato, Red Wine Jus

Overcooked on the first try. WAY way wayyyy too well-done. Had it redone to medium and was perfect.

Far Niente

Chocolate Espresso Ganache Tart
Chantilly Cream

Very chocolatey, must have used cayenne in the tart. again, good but nothing special

Biff's Bistro

Chicken liver parfait with Brent’s mustard

Not my starter, but it was pretty good

Biff's Bistro

Cured Albacore tuna with lentilles du Puy & preserved lemon

This was amazing. the parsley pesto sauce was absolutely divine, and perfect for dipping bread and everything else in.

Biff's Bistro

Gazpacho with shrimp hache & crème fraîche


Biff's Bistro

Roasted pork loin with fingerling potato & apple gastrique

Not mine, but it looks yummy

Biff's Bistro

Way too raw the first time. I sent it back but still a bit too raw, owell...

Fluffy and crunchy chocolate bits ♥

Bakes Shrimps with Turkey Breast Scallopini and Mashed Potatoes

Turkey Spaghetti

Turkey Chili

Made turkey chili a while ago. Here's some pictures. :)

In progress.

And voila! I tend to put too much cayenne pepper so it gets too spicy but the spicier the better! ^^
