Thanks to Shirley Hoo of Prince Hotel for extending us bloggers some invitations for this food tasting session, we got our taste of some exquisite French cuisine.
Chef Jerome, the Executive Chef
cooks up a storm!
Fancy some wine to go hand-in-hand with these?
Lemme take you around for a lil visual tour, shall we?
Upon entering, you will be greeted to the likes of many wine bottles all arranged by indexes and organized in order. Also, a wooden coffee table for two for those wine-lovers out there to chill.
There will also be a little fishpond at the corner laced with more wine bottles.
Ranging from table for 10s or table for 2s

For those not in the know, Foie Gras is actually goose liver. Heh.
Our appetizer was served with fig jam and grilled sour dough bread. I reckon those were necessary to neutralize the rich after-taste of our Foie Gras. Flavourful, no doubt.
Here’s a very good suggestion by one of my readers to share in this entry. Just so you guys know, Foie Gras is actually pronounced as ‘FUAH-GRAH’ and not like how it is pain-stakingly pronounced as ‘FOI-GRASS’ by most Malaysians.
Next up on the line is the Soupe de moules noires au safran et legumes aromatiques. Nevermind the extremely long dish name.
It’s basically black mussels and saffron soup with aromatique veggies. Good things come in small portions, I couldn’t get enough of this! Every last drop was worth a
Man, they were succulent
Served with asparagus, this roasted codfish was to die for.
I’d give them brownie points for the beetroot sauce too!
When we got back, wine was served already. We had white wine and red wine altogether.
Got a little flushed after 2 glasses of wine
throughout the entire session
Dessert came to wrap up our dinner session with sugary sweetness of a caramel custard. It was Creme Brulee with raspberries – known in French as Creme Brulee aux framboises.
Loved the texture.
My tastebuds sang in unison upon tasting it
