Yesterday was my aunt's birthday.
So after considering so many places to have a nice and lovely birthday dinner with her,
I finally decided to treat her a meal at Marche @ 313 Somerset.
Marche is a fancy restaurant with wonderful and well decorated environment
serving all types of Swiss food.
I can tell that she really enjoyed her dinner yesterday because she have not been there before, and the food we had were really awesome!!
We only ordered 2 dishes as we both are small eaters.
There was just too many types of tempting food to be ordered!
Thus, it is advisable to bring more people together, so that we can share and try more food!
We ordered the Salmon Steak from the Seafood Stall because I am a Salmon Lover
The chef there was very kind and pleasant, he offered to serve me potato salad together with the salmon steak.
However, I rejected him because I just had potato salad for lunch. So he was very nice to give me some preserved ginger as appetizer instead!
He also asked if I wanted the salmon to be cooked, or medium rare when I returned to his stall earlier than the given time.
So here's my Salmon Steak which costs me $16.20.
I had it medium rare together with the preserved ginger salad, tar tar sauce and some lemon juice.
The steak was not oily. And the whole dish was extremely fragrant. The fish oil smell was simply fantastic!!
The salmon was SUPER FRESH! The flesh was soft and tender, and the outer skin was slightly crispy!!
I mean ALL the seafood there are very fresh!! Fresh seafood, cooked and grilled on the spot for you.
How can it not be yummy?!?!
I also ordered a large vegetable pasta from the Pasta Stall, because my aunt loves pasta
and the ingredients displayed at the Pasta Stall seemed delicious.
The vegetable pasta was $12.90, it should be served with tomato sauce by default,
since the dish was written as "Vegetable Pasta in Onion or Tomato Sauce" at the signboard.
I requested my pasta to be served in white (cream) sauce, and the chef was alright with it
The portion was just nice, quite little I would say.
However, it was super filling because the cream was very thick!!
I just had a few bites and I was already full.
Although the pasta sauce looks very fat and thick, but when I had my first bite,
it felt as if I was in heaven!!!
The sauce was thick, milky and creamy, so if you're concerned about your weight, please ask for tomato sauce!
I find the vege (celery and mushroom) in the dish was quite little though.
It was an extremely satisfying dinner at such beautiful and peaceful environment.
Love the theme of Marche!!
A little bit pricey but the food definitely worth the price!!!
The service there was very good as well
