My birthday is "1014" (October 14th), in Mandarin this sounds like "yi-nian-yi-ci" or 一年一次 and translated into English means "once a year". So for whoever who has a failing memory, this is an easy way to remember my birthday.

For this special day, my dear brought me to a French restaurant called Brasserie Gavroche. 

Brasserie Gavroche, @brasseriegavroche is the creation of Chef Frédéric Colin. He was from Paris, and worked at his grand père Henri’s restaurant and then St. Regis Bora Bora & now in Singapore. At Brasserie Gavroche, his menu comprises many old recipes from his grand père (grand dad) and comfort food from his youth.

The service is awesome, manned by three French attendants who were very friendly and hospitable. They were able to recommend some really memorable dishes for us.
The entrance is a old antique door (: and leads us to a very classic French decorated interior.

From main entrance, we pass through the bar area onto the main dining area.

Cute napkins. That's probably a sketch of Gavroche. Gavroche Thénardier is a fictional character in the 1862 novel Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. He is a boy who lives on the streets of Paris and his name has become a synonym for an urchin or street child.
We start with wine.

Bread & butter & savory dough balls in a tin container.

It's bite size! So cute ! A little salty, light and airy. Tastes nice. Maybe that's what Gavroche ate on the streets !

The menu is a giant wood framed picture. It is a piece of art !

The pantry area is full of wine and champagne.
It's full house tonite.

Food's here ! We are hungry.
Soupe à l’oignon, recette du grand père Henri - Grandpa Henri’s traditional onion soup !

Râble de lapin à la moutarde et pommes purée
- this is rabbit saddle with mustard sauce and mashed potatoes.
Soft and definitely worth a try!

Vol-au-vent au homard et fruits de mer
Is lobster and seafood with béchamel sauce and puff pastry.

Quite filling! Is so yummy. But also very filling and my small stomach could only eat a little of it.  

Dessert Time!

Courtesy from house. This is an orange & vanilla flavoured sponge cake. Very nice.

Coffee and tea

Tarte au chocolat, poire et airelles
This is a chocolate tart with pear and cranberries.
A slight crunchy texture from the pear & little cranberries. It's more sweet & sour taste and not too chocolate-ish.

This one is awesome ! It tastes so sooooo heavenly ! Too bad, it's not a regular menu item and if you wanted it, you have to order a week in advance.

It's cold inside, filled with ice cream and the chocolatie taste blends so well with the berry sauce! I am overjoyed.

Wonderful dinner with wonderful him. Definitely will be back for other dishes !
