Bistro Du Vin

Back at E’s favorite restaurant to celebrate his birthday. Yes he cannot get enough of the beef cheeks here

image

image

Always need to start off with a bottle of red and some foie gras, a pity the foie gras here has decreased in size over the years, I still remember the huge portion the first time I dined here

image

Trying the steak frite here for the first time.

image

Pretty good, the angus rib-eye was a generous portion and had a good bite. Plus I love the thick cut fries.

image

Very tickled by the birthday message written by the dessert chef (with no prompting from me! All I asked for was a candle lol)

Food here is always good, no complains.

Such a beautiful cafe, open and spacious complete with faux- industrial like decor. For some reason, there was a weird foul smell in the air that day when we popped by for brunch. Probably something in the aircon vent? The staff were busy spraying air freshener hah

image

A hot day calls for some ice coffee, aptly done.

image

E opted for probably the most unphotogenic item on the menu  (lol) – the baked eggs with toast

image

While I went for the most photogenic- the ricotta hotcake with berries,pumpkin seeds and ice cream. Look how pretty it is!! The hotcake was THICK and fluffy, too thick in fact that I could barely finish half but lets just admire how pretty it is

Sumiya Charcoal Gril Izakaya

Ah after the disappointing chirashi the last time,  I headed down to Sumiya for a much better one.

image

The thing about Sumiya is that one has to come only during lunch if not its really not worth it, see how generous the lunch set is!  salad + side dish + chawamushi + miso soup + mochi!

image

Nothing much to say, just good ol’ fat chunks of salmon sashimi on rice. Sometimes thats  about all you need.

Kaiserhaus

Came across this Austrian restaurant at Capitol, never had Austrian food before plus this was on the entertainer app so that was it!

image

First up – some breaded mushrooms, they were ok.

image

E ordered the fried chicken, which came in 3 huge pieces. Portions are generous here so do come with a healthy appetite. The chicken looks so pretty on the plate, in the nice hue of golden brown, it could do with a tad more crispiness though.

image

I ordered what they called the Emperor’s Favorite dish or Tafelspitz, beef in broth with spinach and potato rosti. It even came complete with instructions on how to eat it!

The beef was very tender and I love all the juicy soft vegetables in the broth, slurped everything up. Pretty good, now I know why the emperor loves this so much.

Don Dae Bak

Best thing about Don Dae Bak – the egggggg, yup the gooey soft egg at the side of the bbq plate, so good.

image

That said, the food here was pretty good too, esp the side dishes

A huge pot of korean army stew mmm infused with the rich flavors of clams.

What I didnt really like was the atmosphere, a tad too cramped and noisy with little ventilation i.e. so darn hot. But maybe thats the vibe the owner was going for

Butahage

Liang Court is one of my favorite places to hit for Jap food though admittedly, visits are now far and few now that I am no longer working around that area.
image

Butahage essentially only serves one item, gilled pork on rice. I love places that specialises in one item, you know that they must do it well eh.  The pork was grilled on the spot and served on bed of Japanese rice with a runny egg (argh i miss runny eggs!)

image

tender, smokey and flavourful mmm
