Spices: Beurre Blanc

We were supposed to dine at another restaurant in Resorts World but upon seeing that not a single soul was dining there, we ended up in Beurre Blanc. A French - Mediterranean restaurant that means 'White Butter'.

I loved the interiors of this restaurant, it has a very casual classy homey vibe. There was a goddess fountain in the middle of the dining area, the huge painting on the ceiling was definitely an eye catcher and the wall papers around provided a certain kind of warm and cozy feeling.

There was a buffet table set up but I opted to go ala carte. Complimentary warm slices of baguette and butter was served.

The French Onion Soup was satisfactory. Though it has generous amounts of onion strips and cheese in it, the broth tasted like boullion cubes. The soup would have tasted better if only they used real beef broth.

The Grilled Portabello Mushroom was simple and delicious. Portabello Mushrooms atop a crunchy baguette topped with arugula and slivers of cheese lightly dressed with a balsamic reduction. It was dressed with just the right amount of balsamic vinegar to compliment the mushrooms and not over-flavor it. Also, I really liked the crunchy bread at the bottom, it added texture to the whole dish.

When the Three-Cheese Ravioli was served, I notice how shiny the cream sauce looked as I got a whiff of the wonderful earthy smell of truffle oil. The ravioli tasted great, the pasta still has a bite into it and the cheese pockets complimented the cream sauce well.

The resto sells wines from different regions both old and new world. It also has a wine bar where one can order by glass.

Though I only got to try out a few of their dishes, Beurre Blanc was a wonderful surprise. I would go back to try out more of their dishes.
