Quay

Happy Tuesday! I'm sure it's too late for a weekend post, oh well, I'll just focus on my amazing Friday night!

Mr TMF surprised me with dinner at Quay to celebrate my graduation, so this might mean absolutely nothing some of you... but I have been wanting to have the Quay degustation for a VERY long time. It's one of those "once" in a lifetime places, and it definitely lived up to its expectations!

We started the evening we a few celebratory delights... I love Patron... It's by far the best thing since jager bombs.

I was going to return this dress as it was a little too short for my liking (some would be shocked to hear that, as I tend to wear clothing on the short side) but the return time expired and alas I had to keep it. It's from Zara and I really like it now. However, not sure when I will ever wear it again.


So Quay was amazing, we decided (for the both of us) to go with the 8 course degustation with matching wines. Why not? (lucky I wasn't paying) Yes, the food is something to talk about, but how could you forget to mention the view?? The view was amazing, the Maitre'D loved us so made sure we got to move around and experience every view. 



The menu was amazing, Mr TMF joked that he didn't know one ingredient on the menu, bless, normally a fussy eater, he ate EVERYTHING! I felt like a proud mum. The above dish was the delicious pig jowl!



I would normally say, let's save the best to last, but on this menu the best was second last... I present the incredible... Guava Snow Egg, you might remember her from show's such as MasterChef...The tasting menu had us eating not one but TWO desserts, now that's how I like to end my night!


We ended up being the last people in the restaurant, it was 12.30am... all 8 courses took 4 hours... I have had degustation dinners before but this was the most indulgent meal I have every experienced... 

All in all it was an amazing night.

What is you most indulgent experience?
