It's coming up to the end of the financial year, so we're in the city to take advantage of all those sales and for lucky me, it means a brand new iMac. Deciding on which model to get will be made over lunch at Bistro Vue.
Paalo was interested to see Bistro Vue's take on a prawn cocktail. It's served on a plate, 3 or 4 good sized prawns, crisp whole leaves of baby cos lettuce, avocado and a scattering of ficelle croutons.
Soft shell crabs with ginger sauce
Very meaty with crisp shells - the ginger sauce also carried subtle curry notes
Braise of the Week - underneat that cheesy mash is a hearty braise.
Gratin of Pork with three cheese crust and vichy carrots
The crackling couldn't be better - presented as a neat rectangle, it is crisp and crunchy. The pork belly is coated with an almost sponge like cheese crust, the pork itself parts at just a touch of the knife.
Tarte Tatin aux Poires with creme anglaise
However many times we visit here, we never seem to get past ordering this and no wonder, it is fantastic.
