When Carole Sai & Elfie of Salina & Associates PR asked if I would like to try out the dinner at Frangi, I replied with the enthusiasm of a starving child given a tub of Haagen Daz. It was with great anticipation that I dragged my date along, (she rarely follows for any of these food outings, as it's best to keep them under lock and key, and slim), having followed a number of instagram posts from Ciki of CC Food and Travel and Kelly Siew the week before.

Pumpkin and Ginger soup, with shaved black truffles, truffle oils, edible flowers and crispy croutons. You can't really go wrong with those ingredients, and it made for a hearty yet elegant soup that yells "fine dining", marrying the familiarity of comfort food with class and style.
And paired with this sexy fortified wine, ..... I think my vocabulary has been used up. I can think of no more adjectives.
The sauteed baby vegetables were a treat, and I loved the simplicity of the meat. It's like a beautiful lady who needs no artificial embellishments.
And finally, dessert, with dessert Muscat, which wife loves, but I don't. Really NOT a fan of dessert wines, no matter how good. It's a taste my plebian tongue has failed to acquire.
Mine was the Torrija Toasted, a traditional Spanish dessert, with some croutons that are akin to French toast, in a Creme Catalana Foam with orange zest. There's something about foam that doesn't quite do it for me, I feel cheated, like I'm eating air. But taste wise, it was all there.
Thanks Chef Manuel for a fabulous meal, that the palate will remember for a long time to come, and to Azmi for your warm hospitality, and to Carole & Elfie for the invite.
