Discovering new places to eat is part of the fun of being a flogger. And every now and then there are places that really gives you the uumph factor without breaking the bank. I must say Chef's diary is one of the places we found that we truly enjoy! Though it was not the first choice of restaurant for the day.
Our usual makan event was postpone once ( and had 2 members thinking it was on the wrong day :P ) before we finally settled for a Monday. However...... lo and behold it turn out to be last minute search for restaurants... Our original choice of Dish was CLOSED on monday ( what? ) and so was our second choice Buonosera ( SS2 ). Out of our minds ( Reunion was our last choice ) i remember JL wanted to try Chef Diary [ unfortunately he didn't join us that day - hahaha - go lah George and the Dragon ] so we decided to try it without him * snicker *. Mashi did the last minute bookings, and we were set. And i am quite glad we picked this instead of Reunion.
Menu is sufficient, though some may be a bit steep but the rest are in my books reasonable. We took to sharing of course- so we can sample more dishes.
Complementary bread was served with a dose of balsmic vinegar and the bread lightly toasted with garlic. Since we were starving, we quickly finished this.
While checking out some of the items on the menu, we were in glee over this comment in the menu! What is out of order in this case? I think it means, not being offered.
ABSOLUTELY ADORED the next dish of Vodka chicken pasta. Who would have thought the taste was so excellent. The dash of vodka added in a tinge to the pasta that it is kinda like drinking sprite and feeling the fizz on your tongue. The whole group gave it 4 thumbs up. I would ordered it again next week. Chicken pieces were tender and i think it was marinated with the same sauce, not just cut and added in to be tossed.
We had 2 serving of desserts, one was free as our order was a bit slow but i am thankful because the owner gave us a very delicious order of Flour-less chocolate cake as part of the free dessert. Before that, the one we ordered was Profiteroles... mmm ... it's actually cream puff with vanilla flavored ice cream, drenched in chocolate sauce. No wonder they call it Profiteroles. Shorten the name. The ice cream was really cold, and after all the other flavors, this was quite refreshing.
Our favorite dessert for the night, flourless chocolate cake. Awesome. Made with almond instead of flour, this was absolutely delightful.
Chef's diary has a lot of cute and strange look dishware as well, so when coffee was served for mashi, they brought this cute bowl for brown sugar with the cutest spoon.
We had a wonderful dinner, not explodingly full which is good and we could not get enough of some of the dishes. So much so, we plan to bring JL for his farewell-before-germany dinner next week. Ok lah, excuse for us to eat here again mah. Also hopefully, we can get the order for scallops next ( they ran out of scallops that day )
Those who want to make New Year's eve, Valentine's day a special day, recommended you come here. Food is good here as well as it is quite a nice and quiet place - not a lot of parking issues.
