I feel that since I’m using G’s camera photos, I can’t be bothered writing too much because the photos speak for themselves 🙂

Last Friday we drove down to St Regis for another weekend rendezvous. I actually preferred it this time round because it wasn’t as cold as when we spent the weekend there in January. I guess the only difference is that there was no chance of bumping into Tiger Woods this time round, aw.

Again, we dined in Turquoiz – really nice restaurant near the pools/beach. We did the whole 3-course, complete with a bottle of wine.

G started with Scallops, roasted in the shell with garlic butter. I had the Bouillabaisse soup, with rouille, garlic crouton and Gruyere cheese. 3 of the words in the last sentence don’t make any sense of me but whatever it was, it was good 😀

My mains was delicious, veal chop and crab with hollandaise sauce, onion rings and hand cut chips. G’s Surf and Turf was good but the steak was a wee bit tough.

We dusted off the night with mango sorbet and vanilla ice cream. Stuffed and happy 🙂

Service-wise, no compliants. Polite and all, but would prefer a bit more chit-chat. That’s just me, haha. I’m sure most patrons preferred to be left alone!
