Restaurant Week: Media Launch

It was great pleasure to be invited for Restaurant Week's media launch held at The Tower Club on Tuesday. The event was tastefully done & well enjoyed. 2 hours of champagne, canapes & mingling with chefs and media personnels~

The photos shall do the talking...

Canapes time!

What else but food to get me all excited? We enjoyed a range of dainty canapes paired with free-flow of champagnes & wines from Moet & Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, Cape Mentelle & Terrazas. Nice.

Tatsuya totally stole it with their entire sushi counter & ala minute sushis

Tatsuya's Nigiri platter & tamagoyaki.
Irresistible even after a huge sushi lunch ;)

Julien's Blini with House-cured Salmon & Lobster Bisque

& his little cone of Cod Fish Brandade with Smoked Emulsion was cuteness.

More bites.

K ki ケーキ

K ki houses a couple's sweet dreams.

I simply enjoy inhaling the innocent air of K ki. Rustic woodsy simplicity. Passion & love in the cakes. It's contagiousness will get anybody infected.

Husband-and-wife team Delphine & Kenneth runs this little patisserie. The man's a self-taught baker, uncannily Japanese-looking, who puts much doting love into producing the dainty cakes. You'll feel it.

Oooh check out the heartthrob! Antoinette ($8) helms white chocolate mousse at its most pleasurable texture, flawlessly tamed in optimal sweetness. I'm not normally fond of ivory but this totally pulled me over. It's bliss in every bite, bliss every second of those bites.

Not only the fairy mousse & feathery sponge worked wonders.. right from its center gushed a lovely mango insert. Heavenly. For Antoinette i'll always say, "I do."

Mona ($8) depicts seduction in a different fashion. A condensed milk chocolate mousse is subtly infused with the psyche of fresh bananas, paired over moist dacquoise. No airy fairy clouds here but the invisible banana soul is bound to cajole the banana-ramas.

Delphine kindly offered us cocoa & coconut sable samples too.

Coconut rocked. The tiny coins laced with sugar crytals are coconutty, buttery good and crumble away in delight. Tasted a fraction like Kueh Bangkit but 10 times yummier. Seriously, they make excellent cny nibbles!

K ki spells sweet love. And i'll be back soon for more... Just watch me.
