New Year's Eve at Chelsea

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! Wow...it's good to finally be able to squeeze in a post here after sooo many post unposted.

The yuletide was just filled with so many get togethers, shopping and EATING!!! A delicious excuse to take in twice or thrice our respective caloric allowance ;P hehehe but what the heck...good times and celebrations go fantastic with glorious food.

I start my blog year with a post from New Year's Eve at Chelsea!



We were directed by a craving for good French Onion Soup! hahaha Yes, end the year satiating a want....so walking along Serendra, with a lovely showery whether...we picked Chelsea =)

Our meal started with the complimentary Foccacia with Roasted Garlic Spread
We had 2 or was it 3 helpings of this....we just loved the sweet0savory goodness of the roasted garlic with olive oil!


French Onion Soup

A steamy bowl sweet caramelized onions in a golden broth, topped with a crisp baguette embraced by molten cheese!!!!!!!!!!!!


We didn't get shy in dunking this in the soup! He was definitely pleased! =)





I rave to him about the yummy crabcakes I got to try on a prior visit here....and so this was next up....



How will you not be happy at this sight.....
...pure crabby goodness as you break in the golden crusted crustacean cakes! You can choose to have it with mayo or just good ol' tomato ketchup. As good as when I first tried it....these babies did NOT disappoint =)


Duck Confit Pizza


On the virtue of indulgence...the duck confit pizza! Shreds of duck meat, roasted eggplants, tomato sauce and mozzarella on a thin crackery crust!


Not your usual Itallian variety...but definetly a wonderful pizza twist to enjoy.

A wonderful year 2008 was and ending with a wonderful meal. Thank you 2008 and welcome 2009!!!! Hoooray for a great year ahead =)
