Even though the typhoon was forecast to pass by our area, yesterday, my host-mom, my host-brother's wife and I met up for lunch, to celebrate my host-brother's wife's birthday.
The skies were grey and gloomy and it was super super humid.
Lunch was at a French restaurant that my host-brother's wife had wanted to try...Le Plaisir.
Located in a tiny building the restaurant is tiny too.
In fact, you need to make reservations to dine there.
We were the only customers the whole time...nice!
Lunch started off with a glass of champagne mixed with raspberry liquer...
(When we ordered this, the chef asked "are you sure? it is a rather strong drink. I've had several people pass out after drinking it...whoa?!) It was delicious!
Next came a sauteed scallop salad on mesclun greens.
The scallops were cooked perfectly and well seasoned. The vinaigrette wasn't overpowering.
The daily fish was a tai (sea bream) that was prepared poêlé style which means "pan fried" this was served with a nice light butter sauce.
The fish was also prepared excellently with a nice crisp skin.
Next came the meat dish...Beef entrecôte aiguillette (thinly sliced beef) with a red wine sauce.
So tender and the sauce was rich.
Perfect with homemade baguette.
Dessert is pictured above. A crêpe filled with homemade vanilla ice cream and topped with caramel and mandarin oranges.
Coffee or tea was also served, we all chose coffee.
Not many photos, but it was a nice leisurely lunch and the food delicious!
I'm happy they invited me to tag along. Happy Birthday, K!
