French Cuisine with a World View
Each artisanal dish on this crafted menu has been honed to exceptional culinary perfection, but there are three worth highlighting - The Soupe de Riz Parfumé au Foie Grasrepresents an East meets West fusion approach, combining rice soup and the popular foie gras, which is imported from France, to offer a distinctive taste to the hearty starter dish. The Makis de Légumes Croquants, Crème Glacée Boquerone et Langoustinesis unique in the usage of fresh Boquerone anchovy fish to make into ice cream, paired with rolls of fresh vegetables and seared scampi to balance the overall flavor profile.The Comme une Tête de Veau Ravigoteis a very traditional French dish, but when met with a twist of modernity, the presentation has become lighter and healthier, something that is sure to please the more health-conscious crowd.
This delectable seven course menu is available for two days only, at a special price of MOP1,288*, inclusive of a glass of champagne per guest.
