The Gastronomic Start of 2011.

I sit here with the breeze wheezing in the window.

It is 1:49am and we are into the third day of 2011.

It is quiet here with the hums of a repeat of American Idol in the backdrop.

Two days into the new year and we have literally eaten our way into 2011.

We had steamboat last night with friends at Tiong Bahru. Fishing our way through the ingredients of that hot pot whilst having random chit chats makes me happy.

These are friends from a long time back. A time when we were just starting out at work. And a time when emotions were running deep for some of us. We have gone through so much and have even relocated back to this hometown. Good times.

And then this morning, we made our way to Artichoke for our regular Sunday brunch. The reason I love Artichoke so much is because it is one of the more avant garde and innovative food around with excellent produce.

Owner/Chef Bjorn is always seeking out different ways to express his food and D & I are always delighted to soak our tastebuds in his dishes, be it brunch or dinner! Pity we missed his new year's eve count down party cause I heard the food was smashing! =)

After a much needed siesta, we dropped the kids off with the grandparents at my auntie's for a family dinner. And it was off to Valentino's for our much awaited dinner!

Reservations were made a few weeks ago and we managed to round up some friends to share the meal with us.

Boy! Did we have a good meal. The food was excellent! Best part of the dinner was the service! We had a really really patient and attentive server who knows his stuff. Oh! I know when he ignored my descriptive slur of an italian vino as a pinot, instead of a cab sav! Oh the horrors! =) My bad.

We will definitely be back.

I am so stuffed that I think I can go without food for three more days! Thank God my pole classes start tomorrow.

So, here's to your twenty eleven! May you have good food and good health for the rest of the year! Salute!
