The weekend's coming to an end once again =S I sometimes wish that we could have a 4day-work-week and a 3day-weekend but I guess that's only possible if you are a uni student or if you have very flexible working hours!
This weekend was especially precious because one of my sisters will be going abroad for 5-6 months for exchange so we had a family farewell dinner and post-dinner walk together yesterday! It was particularly nice because most of us made the effort to be present and our moods were high so we had a great time yesterday (: We'll be having our farewell dinner part 2 this coming Friday when we go to the airport to send her off!
I realised that I've been heading to Holland Village area instead of Taka area on Sundays since the breakup because it's more convenient to get to Holland Village from wherever I am. Also, I think it takes less time to convene back home from Holland Village compared to town if I don't have the car. Thankfully, Holland Village is packed with numerous good restaurants so I usually am spoilt for choice! One of my favourite restaurants is definitely Bistro Petit Salut, which to me is a nice homely French restaurant that serves delicious and comforting food!
three-course lunch set ($28++), there is also a three-course executive lunch set ($38++) for those who prefer to have something a little more extravagant.
A basket of warm bread which came with cold, hard butter (the only kind that I'll eat!)
That day, we had 2 normal lunch sets and 1 executive lunch set. You can have a preview of their menu here.
Here are the photos we took that day of our starters:
Duo of homemade pork garlic sausage and rillette with mesclun salad, walnut dressing
“Salade Lyonnais” with poached eggs, vegetables and croutons
Cured Norweigian Salmon Tartare with Olive Oil, Lemon Juice & Fresh Herbs
For our mains, we had:
“Minute” onglet beef with French mustard jus and mashed potato
Seafood risotto with light cream emulsion, parmesan cheese
Pan-seared US Sirloin Steak served with Mashed Potato & Garden Vege
And last but not least, for desserts, we had:
Choux buns with vanilla ice cream, warm chocolate sauce and sliced almonds because we really like them a lot!
Homemade chestnut roll served with mixed berry compote
We also had a cup of complimentary coffee/ tea each! (:We entered Bistro Petit Salut ravenous and ready to be stuffed and we left happy, full and satiated (: I honestly think it's one of the most worth-it places to visit because of the incredibly affordable quality food! I will definitely be back again soon (:
Alright time to take a break from the computer! Will rest a little before getting back on to do prep work for tomorrow! Enjoy the last bit of your weekend! (:
