I apologise for this month long of absence. During these summer months (even though there is no difference in all-year round searing heat on this concrete island), a lot of personal and work related issues keep popping up. I had to put my food desire aside.
Not that the issues are solved now, they are getting more complicated. And in the midst of stress, I have to channel my thoughts somewhere else. Somehow, I found myself back to the comforting food blogging. Nothing else but savouring the food, recording the process and capturing the food-moment. On top of that, I am making use of retail therapy during the summer sales in town.
Jones the Grocer came to my mind. Without further ado, I contacted a friend who is also interested in food-hunting and she called up two other friends and we ended as a group of five. Great.
The overall dish was hearty, but all I tasted was button mushrooms instead of Porcini. Really, no scent of Porcini, it might be used in the pasta stock, couldn’t taste any. And that was the only complain I have.
Everything on the plate was good, the jus was very herby. Just that it’s not confit de canard, so don’t look forward to flesh-off-the bone and ultra crispy skin. The portion is not filling if this is your dinner.
The finale of the meal i.e. desserts!
This small little tart sized simlarly to Chinese egg tart. So, at most, enough for two. I liked it!
Oh yes, the prices here included GST & service charge. You pay what you see. They stock a wide range of artisan cheese, ingredients, wine and other quality food stuff.
