At first he told me that he’s taking me to Boat House, which I was not very happy with the last time we were there. So I was quite disappointed when he said we’re having dinner there. But he drove past TTDI and said that he missed a turn. So I was helping him to find a U-Turn but he kept missing all the turns and by the time we passed Istana Negara, I knew he was taking me somewhere else.
We reached Cafe Cafe and I was so happy because I had wanted to go there for the longest time. He had already surprised me with a Liz Claiborne handbag and I hadn’t expected anymore surprises from him :)
We parked at the smelly back alley behind Cafe Cafe and in spite of the smell, it’s a very photogenic alley! Okay, I just wanted to camwhore…

The moment we stepped into Cafe Cafe, we were transported into a different country! I really love the ambiance, very french and kitsch. Have I ever mentioned that I really love contemporary french music? They always sound so sexy!

I noticed that none of the chairs in the restaurant was the same. We sat down and started ordering.
They had a selection of foie gras dishes and since it’s my first time (yes, don’t laugh!) having the politically incorrect food, I decided on the basic pan fried foie gras. I was seething with excitement about sinking my teeth into the famed liver.
Waiting for food!
We had Nicoise salad and foie gras for starters.

I was pleasantly surprised to find the texture of foie gras so soft. I had expected it to be firmer, more like chicken liver. But it was so different. It’s a good sort of soft…I likened it to eating fat that has fallen off from a good braised pork knuckle…but better! Hmm.
And then our main courses, mushroon & eggplant fettuccine and braised lamb shank.

Lastly, we polished off the meal with a proper creme brulee. Hmmm.
The meal at Cafe Cafe was excellent. I’d definitely be going back. I had such a fantastic time with my boo. I don’t know how we can still manage to be so fond of each other after nearly 4 years. I still miss him everytime after he goes to work :)
We got home and ended the evening watching Semi-Pro starring Will Ferrel. I woke up this morning all energised…finally a normal night of sleep after staying up for 3 days!
