WARM LIGHT­ING, A BREATH-TAK­ING GLOSSY WHITE GRAND PI­ANO and French in­te­rior dé­cor set the stage for a night made to re-ig­nite the spark, both in your belly and with your S.O. So what if you can’t get to Paris? La Can­tine du Faubourg has brought the lovely City of Lights, to our sandy lands. We’ve still got a bit of a fes­tive hang­over, so we chose the del­ish fes­tive menu to be­gin. A warm Ch­est­nut Soup with Black Truf­fle was smooth, creamy and had me lick­ing the bowl for that last good drop, quite lit­er­ally. The Whole Lob­ster Salad with Foie Gras Ter­rine, fol­lowed. Its reign­ing cham­pion the lob­ster, cou­pled with figs in the foie gras ter­ine were phe­nom­e­nal! For my main, I picked the Dover Sole cou­pled with Braised Leeks and Gam­bas (shrimps) fin­ished with a Clams Vinai­grette. The fish was cooked to per­fec­tion and its mild, sweet flavour was com­pli­mented by the caramelised leeks and the clam vinai­grette. I would def­i­nitely rec­om­mend you try this, even if you aren’t a big fan of fish. I wasn’t and my taste buds are still thank­ing me. Last but not least, we had a Vanilla Crème Brûlée and a Fruit Plat­ter for dessert. The Vanilla Crème Brûlée was the high­light of my night and made it up there on my list of fave desserts (a tough list to make). I’m a fan of any­thing vanilla and this sweet lit­tle dessert to­tally nailed it. We fin­ished off with pas­sion­fruit, mixed berries, pineap­ple and sweet melon – just what was needed to seal the deal on the most per­fect meal. Bon ap­petit at a whole ‘nother level of fab­u­lous.
