Dinner was at Absolute Haven along Prinsep Street, I must admit I haven't actually been to that row of eateries before. Have passed it many times but never really found an excuse to dine there. So anyway, our group of like 10 I think, had dinner there and well .... we all agreed the food was alright but not that good to make us wanna go back there again. The medium ribeye I was tasted rather bland, a friend who had the same said the ribeye at Jack's Place was better. The asparagus wrapped in cheese starter was quite crunchy and good.
The pix are a little dark cos I didn't wanna use the flash.
So anyway, after that we headed to another new place (at least to me) Crepere des Arts for drinks and dessert, also along Prinsep Street. Guess what's their speciality?The French expat in our group brought us there. We had lots of crepes and we opened a couple of big bottles of apple cider brut. And gawd, what a great way to end an otherwise-average dinner. I have always luv cider since I was a kid. I had 2 cups of it last nite. That was good.
The crepe I had (shared) was a simple one, no toppings or ice-cream for me. Light but perfect. I may be wrong in what went into it but it had lemon squeezed over it and a little sugar over it. I would definitely come back. And they served WARM cream with their coffee! Believe it or not, not many places do that, it's always cold milk from the fridge. Hate that.
But the highlight of the day was this little purchase. An impulse buy when I was watching Tropic Thunder (great show!!!) at Cathay eariler in the afternoon. Something I would recommend to any food blogger, not that I call myself one. It's a little fun thing I thought, a little pricy S$30. An ex-colleague had shown me her copy a year ago and said she got it from a shop in Cathay. So I figured since this is like, my second ever time in Cathay (really!), I'll go look for it. Saw it before the show and only made my mind to get it halfway during the show in the theatre! <^;^>
