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:
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.
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:
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)
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:
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!
