Absinthe French Restaurant

The restaurant, named after the green spirit Absinthe, the old fashioned green spirit Absinthe that was banned in 1914 but subsequently lifted in 2011. Like the highly alcoholic liquor that required careful preparation and attention to detail, the team strives to revive the appreciation for classic French cuisine.

Today's special 
An heirloom tomato (also called heritage tomato in the UK).
heirloom tomatoes can be classified into four categories: family heirlooms, commercial heirlooms, mystery heirlooms, and created heirlooms. They are grown for a variety of reasons, such as historical interest, access to wider varieties, and by people who wish to save seeds from year to year, as well as for their taste, which is widely perceived to be better than modern tomatoes. 
The taste is good even without the Parma ham. Just dipped in some vinegar sauce you can eat with its own. 

Foie Gras Poele
Pan-fried Foie Gras,  Figg and warm Jerusalem artichoke blinis.
The Pan Fried Foie Gras was served with warm blinis. The combination worked perfectly with the blinis giving it a contrasting texture.

Carre D'Agmeau
Roasted Australian Rack of Lamb, Petits Farcis with Ratatouille Vegetables, Rosemary Juice 

Porc Iberique
Grilled Iberico Pork Pluma Glazed with Honey Mustard, Sauteed Potatoes and Baby Spinach 

Canard Confit
French Duck Leg Confit, Sarladaise Potatoes, Mushrooms, Madiran Wine Sauce 
 The duck and potatoes served alongside are brought in from France. Cooked in its own fat and glazed with a Madiranwine sauce, this tasting portion is well fatty and juicy.

Creme Brulee 
Vanilla Bourbon Creme Brulee 
One of the best Creme Brulee I have ever tried. 

Warm Inaya Chocolate Fondant,  Vanilla Ice cream 
Trust me, don't order this dessert. The skin is thick and you can't see any chocolate flowing out. It doesn't taste like a Chocolate Fondant, it taste like chocolate cake.

This is why we are here. A cup of Absinthe that sums up the dinner.
