It was my birthday last week, and my hubby took me out for a fabulous dinner with a few friends to "Lee on King". It's "Top Chef Masters" Susur Lee's new restaurant, and let me tell you it was AMAZING.
We left around 6, because the only reservation we could get was at 6:30. I managed to fit into a dress I haven't worn since before the girls were born-- and I remembered after I put it on that it was given to me for my birthday ten years ago by my castmates in "Mamma Mia". They all knew that I love JCrew, so they all went in together to get me this dress:
A little snug, but it fits! lol!
When we got to the restaurant we decided to do "Chef's Choice" and just have them bring out the Chef's favourite dishes. This was good and bad-- so delicious, but too much food and awfully expensive! Still, next time we will know exactly what to order. My faves were:
The oysters. So fresh. I haven't had oysters in years:
Next was Susur's signature salad, the Singaporean Slaw. There are 19 ingredients in this salad and I would never have believed cole slaw could be SO fresh and delicious.
Another dish was a cheeseburger spring roll, wrapped in lettuce.
After that the dishes were coming out fast and furious and I put away the camera. The food was so delicious and so plenteous, I could have burst. At the end they brought out chocolate molten cake:
and Quillan asked that the Chef come over to wish me Happy Birthday. :) Chef Lee was very friendly and happy to take a photo with me:
It was such a great night-- and such a great meal!
