I have some wonderful birthday treats this week. Hubby brought me to Michelangelo's Restaurant for dinner. This restaurant has been here long. We got a table even though we didn't have a reservation on a weekend night.
We ordered an Eggplant Tower (S$19), and for the main courses - Black Cod (S$40) and Lamb Rack (S$39). It's a little pricey but the food is really delicious. You've got to come here just once. This is the place to go if you're out on a romantic date and want to impress. Candle light dinner, good food and wine... the works. Save up and treat that special someone here. hehe...
We were busy posing for photos in the restaurant and also taking photos of the food with my new Casio digital camera and LG handphone. So much so that the waiter kept hovering around us, reminding us that the food was getting cold, could we please eat first and take photos later. I jokingly replied,"We don't care about the food! I want to try out my new camera!" lol.... I guess he was quite shocked to get such a diner.
After dinner, we walked over to Essential Brew for desserts. There wasn't many diners, we managed to get a table upstairs. I ordered an Apple Crumble (S$5.50) for Chris and a Rainbow Indulgence (S$12.95) for myself. When my dessert came, I was floored by the colourful combination and also the quantity of it.
Rainbow Indulgence consists of 5 small glasses of cheesecake in 5 different flavours. There is green tea, mango, strawberry, oreo-cookie and the original New York cheesecake. I love NY cheesecake and oreo-cookie. The green tea flavoured cheesecake was too strong and had a bitter aftertaste. Mango and strawberry flavoured cheesecake was too sour.
I tried calling dk to ask him to join us for dessert but somehow, I lost his handphone number. :) Too bad .... I have to stuff myself silly with the sweet desserts. mmm.......
oceanskies treated me to a Max Brenner chocolatey meal for lunch on Sunday. I have a Suckao, a signature item here, and a Banana Belgian Waffle with Vanilla ice-cream!
The Suckao is such a cute drink. There is a special metal container for the chocolate drink and a special metal scoop which doubles as a straw to suck it. Milk is poured into the heated container which has a tea candle (like an aromatheraphy burner) burning at the bottom of it. You add the chocolates chips (3 types to choose from - dark, milk and white chocolate) to the warm milk. You can have a re-fill of milk. Be very careful though, the drink is quite hot and you could get your tongue scald if you suck it with the metal straw. Sip.
