Restaurant Week at Bacchanalia

I gave up at making reservations for restaurant week. But we were able to make it for one at Bacchanalia because one of our friends just did a massbooking. The menu was $55 for 3 courses. Food was really delicious, but undersized. We were all hungry after!

First up was the fried cauliflower with some cubed cheese and covered in a creamy savoury cappucino foam.  There was a lot of Indian influence in this dish, but well done and tasty.




 The main course was a choice between a chicken risotto or a sous vide salmon. Most of us went for the latter. The fish was definitely fresh, and the texture was rather soft. I didn't quite like that part but the rest of the components, a little vanilla sauce, the fennel salad, all paired well.



 

Lastly, we had dessert, which was a poached apple with crunchy biscuit crumbles and a tiny quenelle of vanilla ice cream. 




It was definitely a good introduction to the food at Bacchanalia. I have to admit the food was pretty good. But the whole place is just a little pretentious for me to come back again.

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at iherb.com.  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
