Rice & Fries
today is a special day because i had planned a mini surprise birthday party for Joanne!
Her surprise party this year is held at Rice & Fries!
We have a theme for today's party as well - Minions! And i spent last weekend trying to look for DIY party props. I suspect the whole world is going for the minions theme. Yellow cups were out of stock like everywhere! i went to a party props shop, they checked 3 branches for me, all branches out of stock. i went to Spotlight, all other colours were available except yellow!
Hence, special mention and credits to be given to the lady boss of Rice & Fries (Xinying). Not only did she help me get the balloons, she also helped me search for the cups and decorated them for me!
oh yes, DIY minion cups!
and thanks to Xinhui who also helped with the party props and specially came down to help ensure everything's alright!
arrival of the birthday girl!
Happy birthday joanne!
and yes, WE LOVE RICE & FRIES!
Joanne had the King prawn truffle angle hair pasta with scallops...
Randal had the fish and chips...
ah mah had the prawn pasta..
Francis had the signature lamb shank and he was very impressed by it....
Audrey and i had to have the Filet Mignon with bone marrow risotto with foie gras.... its like a combination of everything good for ONLY $48!
and it was sooooooooo yummy! The bone marrow risotto had a slight cheese taste and was great. the foie gras was a generous portion and the filet mignon was tender and juicy. yummy!
and dessert, Rice & Fries chef Ken is starting to play around with making desserts and today we had the honour to try their molten chocolate cake...
i must say i am very impressed! it is oh-so-good!
the cake is nicely textured and warm and the chocolate oozes with. the sensation of the warm cake with the ice cream is just heavenly! Good job chef ken!
Happy birthday Joanne!
Thank cute Rice & Fries!
