HOTSPOT 09

"I'm going to quit smoking" my best friend
said to me when we celebrated my birthday
at a restaurant. Each year she asks me 
what I want for my birthday and I each
year I answer "I want you to quit 
smoking". Looks like she finally listen to me
haha.

We dined at ´Het Elfde Gebod´ and it was
pretty a fancy restaurant. They have a nice
selection menu system and me and lé BBF love
selection menu, where you can choose a range
 of dishes to create your own 3-meal course.
 Check out the food!


We both took the same first course: 'Scampi in garlic with Gruyere cheese and a brioche bun'.
We were clueless with the bun: you dip it or you eat it together like a sandwich or......



We have got chips on top of the 'cod with gnocchi and lemon cream sauce'. It was okay. 
My friend got the 'beef diamond fillet with fried mushrooms, truffle puree and tarragon sauce' (what a name..)
She enjoyed it!  

My birthday presents!

And we ended our night with 'traditional cheesecake with peach flavored ice cream' I'm not sure what that red
sauce is but I suspect it's cranberry sauce. Shamefully I did not finish the cheesecake, I was so stuffed at the end!

  30. I like how your first photo is of the last course, dessert! Haha the food look good despite that your main didn't taste too great but eh, that happens! I'm so happy your friend is giving up smoking! I'm usually too full for dessert too, especially if I order an appetizer! I remember at disney world we have those meal plans and it included an appetizer, main and dessert, I think I hardly ever finished an entire course because there was so much food, the servings were huge too >< Sometimes too much is not good =S

    Anyway, this looks lovely. I hope it was:) Have a good year!
