V Day Special @ Miss Clarity Cafe

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, most of you might be frantic at the thought of finding that perfect place to bring your date. It usually starts with a romantic candlelight dinner of course. So if you're a student or have a light wallet, what happens? Fret not, because I bring you this awesome Valentine Day Set Meal that won't weigh you down, in more ways than one:

Salmon Cream
Cream of salmon with garlic crostini & baby greens

This appetiser comes served on a crisp toasted rustic bread that goes oh-so-well with the salmon cream. In case you're wondering, the cream is made by blending egg whites with salmon. A healthier choice and a tasty one at that.

Pesto Minestrone
Pesto Minestrone

This minestrone is made from scratch and comes with a good dose of veggies like carrots, zucchini and radish. Very refreshing.

For main course, you have two choices:

Baked Snapper
Oven baked snapper crusted with wild rice puffs, cassoulet of black eyed pea & balsamic buerre noissette

This is certainly my favourite. And no, those aren't worms! The wild rice puffs add a certain crisp to the tender fish meat. Very flavouful too - love the balsamic buerre noissette (hazelnut butter)


OR

Roasted Capon
Roasted capon with potato confit & pomnery mustard cream

Capon is sterilised chicken in case you were wondering. Can you taste the difference? Yes, the meat tends to be more springy and light. I simply love the mustard cream! Delicious.

and last but not least, dessert:

Honey Pineapple
Vanilla caramelized honey pineapple with rose & raspberry sorbet & orange chilli crunch

This is a rather unique dessert that I really fell in love with. That thing sitting on the pineapples is actually orange chilli crunch specially made for this dessert. You heard right, there's chilli inside! It's actually not that scary - it adds a fiery kick that's not overpowering at all. Combine it with the sweet pineapple, it's simply divine; so is their homemade sorbet. Chilli's supposed to be an afrodiasiac anyway!

And there you have it... a V Day menu specially created for you lovely couples by the people at Miss Clarity Cafe.

How much does it costs? Just $58.80 per couple. Add an extra $10 if you like a glass of wine to go with it.

In case you're wondering, haha this ain't an advertisement! Just wanted to share something good with you guys. I actually reviewed this V Day Set for another magazine I'm freelancing at. Enjoy ya'll! Give me feedback if you people actually go for it ya? Have a great V Day!

the menu looks terrific. Jus that at the price of $58.80 per pax, this doesn't really seem the kind that students or people with light pockets will go for. thanks for sharing.

To anonymous - it's $58.80 per couple, not per pax.
My only comment is that the Miss Clarity Cafe decor isn't exactly conducive to a romantic dinner, but people with limited budget can't be too choosy, right?
I just hope they'll turn up the aircon though.

one of the aircon was not working. they said to be repaired, maybe thats why you say they should turn up the aircon.

but we pre-book for 10, so we were seated somewhere cooler.

ooooo.. the recipe looks delicious. we just had miss clarity last week, 10 of us from the office... all the way from the west, from the World's Top 22 Univ.(hehe shameless plug...)

one of colleague ordered the baker's hershey's cookies. can't wait for it to come... *** salivating like pavlov's woof woof now... ***

the baker said...

anon: ya as simon pointed out, it's $58.80 per COUPLE, not per person la. it's very reasonable already, i think. heh

simonsezblog: True, but they'll be dimming the lights and using candles i heard. But ya, i do think that the food more than makes up for the ambience.

keropokman: ya i think they had probs with the aircon the last time i went too. you work at NUS? who's the colleague who ordered my cookies? Ohhh... the one who's collecting from me next week in school?

keropokman said...

baker: u very clever ah. know which one is the top22 univ of the world.

the coll who ordered has almondjelly as nick. dunno when and where she collecting, but too bad we got wind of it. and we are going to devour it. muahaha...

almondjelly said...
