Short story: I was in London for my sister's Graduation. Truth: It was more of a foodie trip. London is full of amazing food, I reckon it has the best Indian outside of India, their take on asian is extremely interesting and who can miss out on Heston Blumenthal's gastronomy and Jamie Oliver's soulful food.
Of course, I relied entirely on my sister for food recommendations.
This one particular day, we were at selfridges doing a spot of shopping and ended up at Aubaine.
We were seated at the back, which had a lot of natural light and feel like a little greenhouse. very cosy.
Started with bread, as you do..
Obligatory photo of dad and mum.
I had the lobster pasta, which was extremely delicious and creamy.
Dad had the mussels, can't fault that, amazing that there were so many of them.
Sis had the fish, nice and fresh and an interesting sauce.
Mum had the salad, also very fresh.
All the dishes were great, but I reckon Aubaine's Pièce de résistance is the dessert platter. I love that they bring an entire platter over for you to choose from rather than have you pick from a menu and guessing if you had made the right choice. Droolworthy desserts, check out that massive macaron.
Mum had the mousse, so chocolatey.
Sis had the lovely fresh summer berry tart.
..and I had the éclair , I have a weakness for éclairs... or anything served in a choux.
I wish they had Aubaine in Singapore or Melbourne, I would go regularly, for sure.
