Final Countdown - 11 weeks to go

Official countdown to the arrival of little one.. decided one of the better way is to EAT.. :-D

Thought of Italian fine dining coz I have been telling hubby about the gigantic portions I could not finish in Italy.. so, Italian fine dining it is.. Wanted to reserve table at One Fullerton, but next available table was at 9.45pm!! So, got ourselves a table at Gunther's instead.

We arrived on time, but were told they were getting ready, so we were asked to take a seat at the bar counter first. Inside, we could hear briefing, on Menu of the Day, etc..

I have decided on the Degustation Menu actually, when the captain introduced Menu of the Day, with real display of King Alaskan Crab, Lobster, Bamboo Clams, Scallops, White Truffles, etc..

Captain came back with a concerned look, bamboo clam and medium done lamb not suitable for me, so, they'll "do something different for me"...

I had still water, while hubby had sparkling. No champagne for him coz he was driving, and I was not allowed to drink.. what a waste.. :-(

1st: Fresh and piping hot french bread with salted french butter.. damn yummy...

2nd: 1 pc of prawn tempura.. yummy!

3rd: Cole Angel hair pasta with Oscietra caviar - goodness, that was the 1st time I had cold pasta, and it was superb! Portion is so much smaller compared to Italy though..

Then hubby's phone batt went dead.. and my phone konked out.. all the below without photo.. sob sob.. what a waste!

4th: Grilled bamboo clam in Provencale style for him, Grilled sweet tomato for me - hubby says clam was not that nice, but tomato was sweet and juicy...!

5th: Egg fondant with grilled seasonal mushrooms, with a slice of Spanish ham and Mozarella cheese.. - superb! egg was smooth, cheese was good..

6th: Grilled lamb rack - 3 smalls pcs, with some risotto and grilled corn.. yummy..

7th-a: French cheese: goodness, we couldn't take them.. 3 flavors, from mild to very strong.. felt like puking, stinko!

7th-b: Fine apple tart "a la dragees" with Havana rum raisin ice-cream.. the tart was piping hot and fresh.. ice cream was good!

7th-c: bits of dried apricot, and various nuts - in mini portions

8th: Coffee for hubby and tea for me - the waiter recommended ginger tea.. good recommendation!

9th: Petit Four - was too full to finish them liao..

Service was superb: 9/10
Food was superb: 9/10
Ambience: 8/10

Told hubby the washroom is a MUST to check-out.. with 5 star hotel decoration, Loccitane's hand wash and lotion, with fresh towels.. duhz...

This is the first time we've got a nice envelope to contain the receipt and credit card slip from a restaurant.. :-D
