Pierre Marcolini II














Just like I said,I went to Pierre Marcolini again on a weekday last week.This time I had a lunch and a dessert.

To make sure that we have a table at that popular restaurant,we had a reservation.Surprisingly,we were the only two customers when we walked in.Later,there were couples of people came in,but still very empty.I guess that's a good thing to me,since I usually find a crowd of people annoying.

I had "Tian de Légumes et Stoemp Bruxellois",while my friend got "Éclairs aux Asperges et au Saumon."The way they presented those dishes were very artistic.Those three flower-like mashed potato was creamy and a bit sweet,they tasted great with the basil underneath.The parmesan cheese cookie easily soaked up the liquid from the vegetable,which made it too fragile and wet.That was kind of the only tiny flaw.Otherwise,I'm all for it!

My dessert L'Oviedo was just,one word,spectacular!On seeing the chocolate hemisphere melted down,it was like watching a performance by Cirque du Soleil.When the chocolate melted down,a chocolate cake popped up like a surprise.The cake was combined with some nuts and macaroon shells,and those things really gave the cake more textures.

Aw,right!I almost forget to mention that their soup and the hot alcoholic chocolate were so great!When I drink or eat something hot,I like them to be really hot,not just warm.Their soup and hot chocolate just scored!It was interesting to find an alcoholic chocolate on their menu,so I just ordered it right away.It was made from Cuban cocoa and whiskey.You could both taste the denseness of the chocolate and the strong aroma of the whiskey.The whiskey made a great balance with the hot chocolate,which meant it was not cloying at all!

I had been on vacation for a month and this week is the first week of my new semester.I've already felt so tiring about the back-and-forth,I can't imagine how to go through this semester,I kinda start to think about the summer vacation!lol
