However, I should have heeded the general sentiment of other food bloggers about this place - they really weren't equipped to handle the crowd, so we ended up waiting too long for our food. On a weekday lunch, that was unacceptable because we all had to rush back to work afterwards.
Me and PC and our basket of complimentary bread.
This is escargot - cooked in some sort of vegetable tomato soup I imagine. I think it costs the same as the tripe. It's quite nice, but I prefer the tripe.
PC's choice. We expected a stew of liver and red onions served with bread, but instead it was served like this. Oh, I see, you mean they are canapes. Well, they were still very nice. Sauteed Chicken liver pate is always nice. The onion was tangy and cut through the richness of the liver and the other dishes. My favourite starter of the 3.
This is the squid ink pasta. Originally supposed to be served with crab meat but they ran out of crab meat so they substituted with scallop. The scallop, if I recall, were rather tasteless. Not sweet. PL also said so.
This is the sausage pasta - and surprisingly our favourite main. It was also the cheapest and doesn't look like much. But the sausage was very tasty and flavourful and the pasta (I cannot remember what it was) was thin and chewy. We all liked this best.
