had another sumptuous 5pax dinner @ 8picure with RI bros on 17.7.2020
today is also tiang chye’s birthday, a very dear friend who lives in our hearts…
i really like chef Gabriel’s food, so during the circuit breaker i ordered takeout 3 times from him and this the 4th time wife and i came with family or our own group of friends to support chef Gabriel as dining out is permitted in phase one after CB.
and also learned several dishes from him – alio olio, cauliflower puree, and lobster squidink pasta to name a few which i recreated pretty well…
but nothing like a joyous evening enjoying chef Gabriel dishes with family and close friends…
spicy tuna on prawn crackers is a delightful start, a too big serving of complimentary amuse bouche. haha!
chef Gabriel did a platter this time, a new variation – spanish duroc roast pork, galician octopus & foie gras terrine..
roast pork was crackling and very tender and flavourful, galician octopus always great, and foie gras terrine was smooth and tasty..
i always enjoyed the chilli crab crab cake which is like 95% crab meat..super tasty and real spicy…i am also going to try to make this one.
lobster squid pasta is my favourite dish. the lobster was very sweet and done perfectly, and the pasta was simply best!
then we had A5 ohmi wagyu. Jo had it well done and it was still very good for a great marbled japanese wagyu. CH had the cod which is always nice.
my friends all had the tiramisu, which is for me the best tiramisu i had.
& this time chef Gabriel let me try his new black sesame sponge cake..very beautiful cake and his dessert all good..i still prefer the tiramisu…
we all had a wonderful evening with good friends.
