My B Day 2009 – PART 2

Yes this is the second part and final part of my B day celebration!

For B day dinner, we went to Forlino @ One Fullerton. My friend actually recommended this restaurant to me, saying that the ambience is romantic and the food is fantastic!

I was really looking forward to the dinner but I also felt very full from my B day lunch earlier!

One picture before our dinner.

We ordered one traditional menu and another main course.

Complimentary Foccacia Bread from the restaurant..made by the Chef’s wife. It’s a bit too hard for my liking.

Complimentary Calamari, a wee bit too oily, if not it will be perfect

View outside the window..that’s the Merlion Park down there and Esplanade on the right side of the picture

Appetizer: Home Cured Meat Platter -Parma Hams..love the one at the middle of first row.. its so THIN

The Middle Course- Veal Ravioli. I didn’t taste it but J said it’s delicious!

My Duck Pasta with Foe Grais . I love this! The amount of the sauce is just right and it’s heavenly with the taste of Foe Grais!

IMG_0284

Mama Lamb Chop from the traditional Menu. I am surprised that although its deep fried, this lamb chop does not taste dry and hard at all. What is the secret?

IMG_0285

There is cheese inside! What a brilliant idea!

Then…there is also a complimentary cake from the restaurant!

Me with the cake!

me with the boss who foot the bill!!! People says we look alike? Do we? What do you think?

His dessert: Chocolate Mouse. It’s actually very good but I was too full to finish it!

With all that, our meal was happily concluded.

I simple adore the corridor! It’s so classic..!

and the red couch!

Forlino is definitely recommended for special occasions as it is a bit pricey. Do give it a try if you need to celebrate anything! I believe it will become more popular as it has already gained such good publicity only after its opening for 8 months. We took a walk after the dinner and returned home after.

It was a great birthday celebration for me. I am truly blessed with people who care about me…

Anyway Valentine’s Day is also coming up but I do not think we will try another fine dining again as I am craving for some down to earth food like pork ribs etc!

Well, We will see…..
