The dangers of being so behind with my blog posts is that I can literally forget what I actually ate at a dining venue. If I didn't have my trusted camera with my precious pics to refer to, I seriously think I would have had a form of amnesia.
But the memories have come flooding back after browsing through the pics. A lunch I had a few weeks ago at Felix Bar and Bistro was rather enjoyable. It was to farewell an ex-colleague of mine who was relocating to Canberra. What a better way to do this than to find a nice restaurant near enough to the office for a lovely meal.
We chose Felix because both of us had not been here before. Out came my camera and my taste buds.
For entree, we shared the Chicken liver pate, dressed puy lentils and walnut toast. We loved it, especially since we both love pâtés. The waiter was kind enough to offer us more of the walnut toast which by the way was perfect for the pâté.
For mains I had the Char-grilled pork neck, red cabbage, currants, Granny Smith apples and mustard jus.
JJ had the Duck confit, cassoulet style white beans, pork belly and garlic sausage.
The food is classically French with robust flavours. My pork was tender and the red cabbage thrown into the mix provided a nice texture to the tender meat which was full of flavour.. According to JJ her duck was delicious. The fact that we finished every morsel from our plates is testament to how much we enjoyed our meal!!
We found space for desserts. Yay! I had the Cold chocolate fondant with honeycomb ice cream.
JJ had the Caramelised lemon tart, poached rhubarb and Creme Chantilly.
What do you think we thought of our desserts? Yummy to the max! I liked the idea of a cold chocolate fondant as opposed to a hot chocolate fondant. Something different with a modern twist. The caramelised lemon tart looked so beautiful and apparently was utterly delicious.
The service was good. Our waiter was attentive even though it was a very busy lunch service. I was impressed with Felix Bistro and Bar and would definitely recommend anyone who was looking for a classic french cuisine meal in the CBD to check it out. You won't regret it.
