Posts Tagged ‘Cannelloni’

When Collin asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I suggested if he can make me 10-course homemade dinner and he agreed to it. My birthday is December, but it was on weekend last year and he had to work. So, the dinner date was set on a weekday.

The course was planned as tapas style, so no main dish, and included some that I liked in the past when he made.

1st course: Quinoa chickpea pave with Coleslaw

He made this one in the previous month. As a part of 10-course meal, each one was too big! 🙂

2nd course: Smoked salmon wonton

3rd course: Marinated eggplant

I basically like eggplant, and after I ate marinated eggplant at Fishworks and Bao Bei, I told him I liked them and I can eat them every day. So, he sometimes makes some for me, and this time wasn’t exception. 🙂

4th course: Prosciutto wrapped chicken with Parsnip purée

5th course: Wonton soup

He made won ton soup in the past and I liked them, too. But this time, he put some unique spice, and I didn’t like so much. 😦

6th course: Scallop with butternut squash and bacon

7th course: Prawn cream cheese cannelloni with Rose sauce

8th course: Spicy green beans and cashew pork

As I liked the green beans dish that he made before, I requested the one. This was so spicy and I ended up having him eat some.

9th course: Apricot rum poached pear marshmallow soup (It was supposed to be two desserts, but we were full so he changed the menu at last minute.)

So, this is a hot soup. Because of that, marshmallows were melting in the soup. Mm, so good!

The dishes were served a bit too fast (because I’m slow eater!). I kept eating, sometimes having two or three plates in front of me, for 2 hours or so. I thought my stomach was going to explode! 😀

My friend asked me to go out on weekend. As I had heard Fishworks had held an anniversary event, we headed for the restaurant after going to Yoga. (She had a free ticket for me. :))

There was an anniversary menu, 3-course meal dinner for $28. We both ordered from their anniversary menu. (Unfortunately, the event has been ended.)

Bread & Today’s flavored butter, pepper lemon

My friend told me that she loved this chocolate truffle. I agree. I wish they have a show case to sell them to go. How about $5 for 3? 😛
