2016_0905_19410300

The last time at Ramadhan, I showed you Tasek Brasserie's new look after their rennovations and this time they are proud to introduce their new menu to match their new look! It was a pleasure to visit with my wife and friends to have a good night catching up over drinks and good food! Here they are enjoying the mocktails, juices and smoothies ~~ ready to begin the night with signature appetizers!

For soups ~ we tried out the Tomato Orange: which is ripened tomatoes soup, with shreds of fennel and a hint of balsamic ~~ flavour profile more towards sweet and sour.

The mushroom cappucino is a favourite for the girls ~~ and mine too ~~ foamy porcini and wild mushroom soup was so good ~~ we were fighting for every last drop!

For the mains ~~ they have very good vegetarian options such as this Butternut Olive which is actually gnocchi made from butternut squash ~~ pan fried and served with olive rosemary biscuit and parmesan shavings ~~ I must clap for this dish as I love the texture of the gnocchi and the biscuit!
