Celebrating Kor's birthday

Posted by Dawn at Sunday, May 13, 2007
My brother's birthday is exactly one week after Pam's birthday. So, it was another celebration again. Lots of celebrations happening this May...

We also celebrated Mother's Day at the same time since it was just one day apart. Went to Zuko, a French/Italian/Fusion restaurant just outside my parent's place along Upper East Coast Road. Been there twice and boy, it was so much nicer this time round as we ordered lots of stuff and shared. Pam's parents came along too since we were celebrating Mother's Day.There were a total 9 of us,including our helper.


We first ordered two plates of tomato bruschetta,which is a grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper.Very tasty and yummy. Then we each ordered soup-french onion soup and wild mushroom soup.After the soup, we also had escargot. It is one of my favourite dish since young but didnt eat it this time because of my pregnancy. One of those foods that I do not know I can eat or ot during pregnancy.

Then, our mains came. We actually ordered to share with one another. We had 2 plates of squid ink pasta (linguine), 2 plates of grilled chicken with veggies, 3 plates of grilled hokubee ribeye and lastly my bro's birthday cake.

Our favourite dish was the grilled hokubee ribeye which is actually a Japanese cow that is reared in Australia. So, it is really tender, juicy and fatty! Melts in the mouth.Very nice. It came with mashed potatoes at the bottom and sauteed veggies.


More food pictures..


The squid ink pasta dish has been the dish that we always order as it was unique and fun...Well, at least CT and Janine had fun with the ink...(or rather we had fun laughing at Janine at her expense..)


Another part during dinner where we laugh at her is when we made her eat a slice of lemon to see her reaction. Cheap thrill...




How fun..

And finally, this is a picture of the cake I bought for my brother..it was a choc truffle cake.


I always leave such dinners with the feeling as if I was going to be in labour soon..so so so full.
