I love it when Ate has only 1-2 hour periods in school coz it means I get to go with her, wait for a while, then have our sister date! <3 Nothing beats girl power where we can stuff our faces & just be downright silly with each other. Gossip, rant, and rave in between mouthfuls.
A couple of weeks ago, she had to go to school for 2 hours to take a quick test then she was free, so we had lunch at DUCK & BUVETTE located at the 2nd floor of the Main/Old Wing of Shangri-La Mall.
Duck & Buvette, a Casual French Bistro & Bakery inspired by French Countryside Cuisine using handpicked ingredients specializes in, you guessed it..
QUACKS DUCKS. And of course BUVETTES (french counterpart for the spanish Tapas) which are small plates and starters. They’re apperizers made for tasting and sharing.
The re-invented Duck & Buvette (15-year old former Cafe Provencal) is a brainchild of 3 people -2 of who are Bryan Chua and Chef Jacq Tan, who think French Food should be for everyone. And I can actually say in all honesty that this is the first french restaurant where I came out FULL & happy! They don’t serve the usual hoity-toity fine french dining where all you get is a teensy weensy sexy bite -2 at the most, on a bed of a beautifully plated formal meal & you’re through. :P (Well, of course unless you order the Buvettes. Then that’s a whole different thing.) Plus, I can actually read AND understand what’s on the menu! #sorryforthemillionparenthesis
Duck & Buvette
Because we’re gals with big appetites, we skipped the Buvettes and went on directly to the Duck. The thing with duck is, you can’t have a whole serving all to yourself.. unless you wanna pass out from all that cholesterol. Besides, it’s nakakaumay, so Ate & I shared half a quack. #hatingkapatid (60/40)
Duck is a particularly succulent meat, primarily because of its high fat content. While duck offers a plentitude of nutritional value, including healthy fats, protein, minerals and vitamins, it is high in unhealthy saturated fat and cholesterol.
See, the problem with just Ate & me being on a date is we are restricted from ordering more & trying the other dishes because our tummies can only handle so much. We should go back with the rest of the fambam to really get in the nick of things & see (taste) what else Duck & Buvette has to offer.
Is there a part 2? Abangan! :P
