The weekend's finally here again and I'm pleased that the weather held up today because I went towning to get shoes! I've thrown away most of my flats because they're either too worn out or too old so I was on a mission to buy at least one pair of flats but I got distracted along the way and got another pair of blue wedges! Ah well at least I fulfilled my mission at the end of the day because I managed to find a pair of affordable black flats so yay for me (:
Town was, as usual, pretty crowded and I was pretty relieved that I decided to have an especially late lunch so that I could beat the lunch crowd! (: Will blog about my lunch adventure in town another time because I want to blog again about Graze @Rochester! (:
a cup of frothy cappuccino ($6), which was average. I'm no coffee connoisseur so as long as the coffee doesn't taste too milky or overly burnt/ bitter, I'm fine with it. Am more of a chai-tea latte kind of person though so if there's chai tea latte on the menu, I'd always be tempted to try!
Because we knew that we were going to have a HUGE dessert platter that day, we chose to skip the appetizers and went straight for the mains!
garden asparagus ($20) which consisted well-cooked asparagus and a poached egg that sat atop a piece of cooked salmon and muffin bread. It was a nice change from my usual eggs benedict because I could have some greens as well (: The small portion gave me ample room for desserts!
striploin ($44), which basically is steak with garden salad at the side. He said that the steak was very well-cooked and the black pepper sauce that came with it was not bad too.
Dessert Tasting Platter ($36), which was honestly a dish fit for a dessert monster like me! My favouritres were the two scoops of icecream, a fried round ball that tasted like churros (there were dips for it!) and the banana creme brulee (: I felt that the chocolate lava cake was a let down because the lava didn't flow that day! =S Guess they didn't have time to heat it properly. I would urge you to order this so that you can sample most of their desserts at one go and I promise you happiness and a sugar high after you're done polishing the entire dish! =P
Alright that's all for now! Hope your weekend's going well. Have a great one! (:
