Celebrating our 5th Valentine's together!
|kushi oysters w/ compressed apples, horseradish cream and apple-champagne gelee|
Isn't the hubs adorable? He chose to wear pink just for Valentines! hehehe.
|parsnip soup w/ cripsy sweatbreads and truffled beignets|
|terrine of salmon, lobster, scallops and artichokes|
|mushroom and lobster risotto|
|creekstone beef tenderloin, braised beef shortrib and burger rossini with bordelaise|
|slow cooked butterfish w/ salsify truffles and jus de poulet|
|molton valhrona chocolate bread pudding w/ passionfruit sabayon and rasberry sorbet|
The chocolate bread pudding was AMAZING.. it's like the best molton chocolate lava cake meets the most awesome bread pudding you've ever had in your life. I've never tasted anything like it.
The rest of the dinner however was pretty awful. It started off really badly, both the hostess AND our waitress were extremely rude. What gives?! I realize it's Valentines and you guys are busy but there's no need to be rude to patrons of your (extremely overpriced) establishment. Also the food didn't seem that fresh and the flavors were all underwhelming. *sigh*
La Folie received 4 and a half stars out of 536 Yelp reviews. What the effffff.
You have failed me Yelp.
I just wanted to get home to open my Valentine's presssiessss!
It actually smells pretty good. The hubs has never bought me perfume before mostly because I have fairly sensitive skin and kind of allergic to most scented things. This one smells pretty good and even if I don't use it looks really pretty on my vanity haha.
Haha I put it on Napoleon, it looks like a flower lei!! It was destoyed in 2.32234653 seconds.
OOH EMM GEE. JUDITH LEIBER.
Well if it's any consolation the hubs got me REAL GOOD. When I saw the Judith Leiber box I was seriously petrified there was going to be a big ugly bird clutch staring back at me. Remember the one SJP gets from Big in Sex in the City? Yeaaaah. *Cringe* YOU know the one. The hubs said my face was priceless.. his exact words were "You were trying to smile really hard while simultaneously swallowing your disappointment." HAHAHA.
So when I opened the Leiber box and saw the the word Chanel I actually started shaking from relief/excitement. I was so excited I jumped up and ran around my apartment, not once, but twice before I even came back to opening the Chanel box. LOL.
Stay tuned I'm going to be revealing my Chanel V-day pressie TOMORROW! (I have a small family of Chanel babies.. and this is by far my FAV Chanel baby to date surpassing my Sparkle & Glitter flap!)
