How to make this kind of butter uh?! Anyone kindly enlighten me?

It’s very fragrant applying this butter on the toast.

Cold Starter : Arugula Salad (RM21.00+). Wild rocket salad tossed with lemon dressing, smoked salmon, and onsen tamago, salmon roe, and aged balsamic reduction.

I should have ordered other types of salads instead. I didn’t  notice that the side dishes of our main courses were also rocket salad. OMG!

Hot Starter : Vongole Al pepe (RM19.00+). Fresh clams cooked with white wine, clam broth, chillies flakes, and fresh Italian parsley.

This is a must order! I was really impressed and kept thinking of how to use the same way to cook them at home.

Black Angus Rib-Eye 200g (RM98.00+). 30days aged grain fed Black Angus rib-eye pan-seared, served with roasted potatoes, arugula salad and mustard-grained jus.

    Wow, I guess it is quite costly for such a small meal.

    I had the same experience here… :-p
