my RI friend bought an exquisite lunch at la ventana @ dempsey today on 12jan2017. ^^

this friend not easy to meet up. i enjoyed his company & looked forward to the lunch.

the outside looked a bit untended outside. inside ambience was great. 🙂

my friend recommended the S$48 3-course set lunch.

for appetizer, there was a gaspacho, tapas & something else i cannot remember.

friend recommended tapas & we both ordered that.

it was very good! ^^

nice anchovy bruschetta, a marinated pangrilled mackarel??, a nice croquette (or both were croquette?), a potato dish? & grilled jalapeno pepper.

one thing about the service – for a place like this, strange that the server did not explain the dishes they served.

iberico pork & crayfish

iberico pork & crayfish

for the main course we both had iberico pork & crayfish. i think there was a salmon main option.

this was a really delectable dish. the iberico steak was served slightly pink which i liked.

my friend cannot take pork medium rare, so the restaurant took back & made it well done & served to him nicely presented again. that was good, commendable!

i enjoyed this dish! as i did the tapas appetizer.

the inerico pork steak was excellent & not as fatty as the iberico collar that i do.

the crayfish was quite a fair size helping. it was not overwhelming but was more than competent, so overall it was quite a great pairing.

cheesecake tart with strawberry sorbet

server recommended creme brulee, said it’s most popular.

creme caramel stuff really not my preferred dessert. if it was a good pannacotta i meight take.

friend recommended cheese cake, and it was very good. it was done the japanese cheese cake way – very light cheese. it was good!

fruit sorbet

my friend took the fruit sorbet. so nice! i am sure great too, refreshing.

we had a wonderful time, nice food & conversation, great company. something to look back & reminiscence.

my car was in the garage for maintenance, and my friend did not have a car at his disposal last minute so he cabbed to my place to fetch me for lunch. after lunch we cabbed back.
