today birthday of my RI bro.
i went to his office, then we went for lunch at foc just across the road at hong kong street on 17.7.2018. ^^
i saw foc offering a singtel promotion set lunch 3-course at S$38pax.
i called to book and checked that payment can be made by any card.
foc means “fire” in spanish.
the food here is exquisite & my family came here a few times for dinner.
for today we picked the kale, belly pork & mash, and the mixed croquette for our first course.
the crispy roasted kale was excellent, and the mash was super.
later i recreated this dish at home & it was pretty good. i think my flamed red wine slow braised belly pork was better actually! & my wife & daughter thought my mash (first time) was excellent too!^^
the croquette at foc always nice. excellent crust & flavourful fillings.
the iberico T bone was just fantastic! so tender & flavourful la! 🙂
& the paella of the day (a lamb paella) was very flavourful, tasty. it was just excellent! 🙂
the rice was very al dente…i must try this again & make my rice more al dente like here. 🙂
the restaurant arranged a complimentary cake for my friend the birthday boy!
great gesture! quite expected of a good class restaurant like here. 🙂
the dessert were more ordinary.
still nice dessert, both the french toast & the roasted pineapple…
digressing a little-
after lunch we went back to the office, the staff arranged a birthday cake, so we had cake cutting & eating & singing birthday song. 🙂
