Cocotte and Marmalade Pantry

Wednesday, 21 December 2011

After many failed attempts, Bianca and I finally met up for lunch.
I chose Cocotte located in Wanderlust Hotel (Little India) 'cause it serves French food in a simple and cosy setting with a rustic design. Plus it's communal so we can share the food!
Apparently they're famous for their Pork Collar, Poulet Roti and Escargots but Bibi and I decided to settle for the lunch set ($29++) and ordered an extra side of the escargots.

 Even their napkins are so pretty!

Rosette: Slices of salty cured pork sausage

Escargot Gorgeres
I didn't like it 'cause it's too cheesy for me (not a fan of cheese).
Still prefer escargots in garlic butter sauce hmmmm!

Fresh Pear & Bleu D' Auvergne
I asked to have the blue cheese on the side. 
Salad was very good with the hazelnuts!   

Homemade Duck Confit
Crispy skin but not the best duck confit I've eaten.

Pan Seared Chicken with Pine Nut, Mushroom & Port Cream
Sauce was also good.

Creme Brûlée
Bad rendition of creme brûlée.
Caramel topping was too burnt and the custard wasn't smooth like how creme brûlée are supposed to be.

Chocolate Mousse
I don't like mousse on its own but this was surprisingly nice!
Very rich chocolate, I like.
Probably 'cause it's made with Valrhona chocolate ;)

 Here's us very stuffed after lunch!

 On one of the walls in the hotel.

Verdict: I'm not sure if I'll go back to Cocotte again but if I ever do, 
I'll definitely order entirely different dishes.

 Dinner with H at The Marmalade Pantry after work.

Seared Scallop Linguini with Tiger Prawn Bisque

Truffled Field Mushroom Risotto
So tasty, so fragrant, so, so good!!
Every mouthful was lovely 'cause they're pretty generous with the mushrooms.
I could be biased 'cause I loveeeee mushrooms.
Then again, even H agreed it was good ;)

Chocolate banana cake with peanut butter frosting takeaway for breakfast the next day with my favourite milk tea from Japan.

Some recent outfits!
 Touches of neon

 (pssssst look at my super cute cupcake ear cap!!)
