Nathalie's Gourmet Studio @ Solaris

Click here for earlier entry on Nathalie's Gourmet Studio (May 31).

Tomato gazpacho with crab tartar. We're usually not fans of cold soup, but this was excellent: thick and potent but not too sour, with a tangy flavor that blended beautifully with the fresh, luscious crab meat.

King prawn & crab rolls. Subtle in taste, delicate in texture. Light eaters, rejoice.

Spinach & parsley ravioli. A hearty serving, offering the flavors of springtime; the dominant vegetable components made it seem less cheesy and starchy than ravioli tends to be.

Curry risotto with roasted sesame scallops. Don't let the name fool you; the creamy foam looks vaguely like curry, but it isn't spicy. Still, this was an impressively inventive recipe, bolstered by perfectly prepared rice and plump scallops.

Lamb tagine with couscous & edamame. Super-succulent meat in a wholesome-tasting platter that would put many Middle Eastern restaurants to shame.

No visit to Nathalie's is complete without buying some macarons.

Canele. As Wiki describes it: small French pastry with a soft custard centre and a dark caramelized crust. A specialty of the Bordeaux region.

Sweet, sticky meringue. Very light and fairly airy.

Fizzy pink lemonade.

Virgin Mojito & house red wine.
