Birthday Bash!

It was a few days', a few meals of celebrations. My parents and sisters celebrated my birthday with a long-promised-promotion treat from my youngest sister. We had dinner at Sushi-Tei. It was really sumptuous!! She was really really generous in ordering all the good food. Yummy! Thank you Christy!


The other sister bought two cakes for me. One is an Opera Cake which I got to bring home, and the other was a Hazelnut cake with crispy layer to share with them. It was an evening of glutton! They were very kind to tell me that for my birthday, I should not be baking a cake, and rather, they will buy a cake for me! :) Thank you Irene!


On my actual day on 8th, I did a cake order for my colleague in the morning. For lunch, my dear hubby brought me to


I told him I wanted to try French cuisine and so, he agreed that we should go to Au Petit Salut for a little indulgence. Both of us ordered the $58+++ set menu, as we preferred the food for this menu. It was the first time I tried foie gras. Okay, I'm rather "swaku" I know, which is why I wanted to try. My main course was duck leg confit. It's something my elder sister had done for us previously and I like it. My hubby had the lobster bisque and beef tenderloin. The beef tenderloin was really good, and was surrounded by very fine mashed potatoes!


Finally, for the dessert, it was presented in a very lovely and thoughtful way! My husband had called earlier to request for a cake for my birthday. However, they informed him that they don't have cake in the restaurant and he just let it pass. He was also pleasantly surprised by the beautiful presentation! It was really a very wonderful dining experience to remember. We were quite surprised that on a Monday lunch, the place was packed!!! It just goes to show how good this place is then!


As for dinner, we brought our family to Swensen's and invited my 3rd sister to join us. I managed to get myself a complimentary Firehouse after our dinner. Doesn't everyone do that for their birthdays in Swensens? Hahaha... I'm a bit cheap skate. My hubby commented, for lunch for both of us, we spent about $140, for dinner for a total of 10 persons, we spent about $120! What a vast difference! :) I think it's the total dining experience that counts, don't you?

Happy belated birthday, Jane!

Au Petit Salut's my favourite restaurant in Singapore. I always go for exactly what you had- foie gras, duck confit and the chocolate fondant :)
