VINGT-TROIS

“You can't just eat good food. You've got to talk about it too. And you've got to talk about it to somebody who understands that kind of food.” ― Kurt Vonnegut


June 18, 2014 - I grew up loving food and understanding the notion of quality always, rather than quantity. Perhaps, that was the way I was brought up. C'est la vie! During my birthday, I had a choice of choosing between two fine gastronomical destinations. One was traditional, the other was innovative. But instead, I decided on a third choice, a dining room serving Indo and Straits Nyonya dishes using French cooking techniques. The effect was simple, full of flavour and dazzling.
