Pretty appetizing uh?
You guys see the bowl of salad right there? The bowl with like cucumbers and cherry tomatoes?
Ashlyn called me to help her get the salad. Yes, the salad is self-service. They called us to ‘do help yourself at the salad bar’. So, I literally helped myself at the salad bar, I mean, you don’t say. I grabbed some lettuces, some cucumbers and some cherry tomatoes (since she wanted them) but I wasn’t sure what dressing to put. They provided us with French Dressing, Sesame dressing, Wagyu Dressing and the other one which I can’t remember at all. The wagyu sauce looks pretty much like BBQ sauce so I took two scoops and pour it down the bowl of fibre-rich food. Then, I scattered some sesame on top.
My creation seems pretty legit at first, visualising it as some salad done by some Michelin-rated chef… Until when Ashlyn started trying to mix everything together. It looked like a pot of plants partially submerged in water after days of downpour.
I added too much dressing, making things rather salty. Oops.
I shall not continue to shame myself further.
Did I not mention that we ordered another dish apart from our main course?
Yep. I didn’t. But now I do.
We were trying to decide between Calamari Fritto and Carpaccio with Smoked Salmon. But by looking at the picture above, you should know what’s our final verdict. The smoked salmon tasted pretty much alright, but I didn’t eat too many different kinds of salmon to comment on it any further. But it was good food.
Here’s our Mediterranean Tomato Cream Soup Spaghetti with Fresh Seafood. As quoted from Ashlyn, that’s really a large serving. As a first timer in eating soup spaghetti, I fell in love with it. The tomato cream is marvelous, the aroma stayed for a while in my mouth even when I’ve swallowed the noodle and soup. Though it’s creamy, it doesn’t really taste that oily compared to those I’ve tried elsewhere. The seafood given is quite a serving, given the expectation of a restaurant.
I need to admit I thought I was having laksa towards the end.
That’s not the end yet. Ashlyn suggested we have some dessert before she starts shopping around for a pair of new shoes, new pink shoes.
Marble Slab Creamery.
Oh boy, that place looks really atas (high class). Okay, not so posh like some cafes but it looks hmm… it has that kind of European countryside feel. To me, at least.
We ordered two different flavours: Red Velvet and Macchiatto, together with a free topping (which I can’t remember the name of it, but you can see the colourful things sprinkled on the ice-cream in the picture above).
I swear they have so many flavour offered that they even have some really funny ones. Like er… birthday cake? I don’t know. I don’t know how’s that going to taste like. Ashlyn and I were both left wondering about what taste that flavour actually gives when it’s on our tongue.
That’s a mystery I am going to solve the next time I visit Marble Slab Creamery.
