Je Suis Gourmand =)

It was a day to celebrate the day of a special person =) It was more of a treat for me actually...because we dined at a place I have wanted to try for quite sometime now...yey! How spoiled am I? ;P

Je Suis Gourmad is located along Rizal Drive at Fort Bonifacio Global City. This resto has been there way before Basilio's, Paul Calvin's and Barcino has been put up there. I was delighted indeed! It has a casual-fine ambiance...a deli counter filled with cheeses, foie gras and antipasti items...may I add they have a very nice restroom =) hehehe

complimentary basket of crusty bread with burre....bread a pleanty...I likey!!!

Parma Ham and Goat Cheese Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette
Soooo good! Very generous with delicious parma ham (true blue parma ham at that) and plenty of crumbled goat cheese on top of fresh greens and sliced cherry tomatoes! This with the yummy bread is a meal on it's own =)

Braised Lamb Shank in Sauce with Roasted Vegetables and Potatoes
Fall-off the bone tender and wonderfully flavored by the brown sauce...with was uber yummy to dip the crusty bread in ;P

Roasted Chicken Breast Filled with Mushrooms, Penne and Peppercorn Sauce
Like an Ala Kieve with mushroom stuffing! I must say, Je Suis Gourmand does not scrimp on ingredients...quality and will surely be pleased. The pepercorn sauce gave a delightful veil of peppery-gravy flavor...the breast was moist and tender...the penne along side was al dente...simply buttered and sprinkled with chopped parsley as a light accompaniment to the dish.

see the cross section...

and to cap our meal...Fresh Coffee Charlotte Cake with Chocolate Sauce
A delicate coffee infused cake...with a texture somewhere between a mousse and a panna cotta. I am not a fan of this type of cake but with the coffee flavor and dark chocolate sauce...I quite enjoyed it too.

and americano for me...see that crema!

A truely delightful dining leave the place with a very happy palate...full stomach and good spirits =)
Happy Birthday!!!
