Blue Fin

The restaurant locates at the Theater District. Waiter will ask if you have movie plan that night before seating you. (I wonder if they serve you more efficiently if I said yes XD )

The foods here are fresh and amazing!

Alaskan King Crab Salad, I am a plain crab lover ♥

The crab cake was okay (couldn't really compare with the Alaskan King Crab leg after all)

The Atlantic Cod, with sweet potato puree, beluga lentils and clementine marmalade. A very special combination with cod and marmalade! You could taste the orange peels in the dish as well!

The Parmesan Crusted Filet Mignon with creamed spinach, buttermilk onions and burgundy red wine sauce.

Dessert of the night was Pear Tart

We also got this Honey Crisp Apple Crumble, both tasted delicious, apple crumble was a bit sweet compared to the pear tart.

Parting gift was this House-made Truffle!

While looking for good and tasty stuff, I also like trying weird stuff~

When I saw the menu of Kittichai, I wanted to give it a try :D

This restaurant had a very nice little pond in the center of the place. Too bad the dark (or romantic, your call) environment was hard to take a picture of :(

So here we go with the first dish.

It was the Coconut and galangal soup with chicken & straw mushrooms. What's more interesting than the soup itself was the paper container! Yes, it's paper holding the soup put on top of the fire stove. Somehow the soup (water) and fire together kept the paper safe, as soon as we finish the soup, the paper burnt. Ha!

Then it was the Chocolate baby back ribs with Thai spices. Chocolate with ribs?! I like the idea, yet the chocolate kinda lost it's flavor in the dish. Still interesting!

This was the entree Pineapple-braised short ribs in green curry. Terrific short ribs and not spicy at all! I liked the special flavor given by the green curry.

And the Thai omelette, lump crab meat with sriracha sauce. Too bad I didn't taste any crab meat. :(

Thai coffee, Thai tea & vanilla ice cream with palm seed & coconut jelly. Like their ice cream a lot!

While dinning there, I saw many dishes with interesting presentation, I tried recording what was on the menus so I could try them next time (maybe! XD )

Blue Elm

Been there a while back, they already changed their menu since I went, but I want to go back again for their other flavors!

It was a small place, yet kinda trendy. I went there as a group of 7, had pretty good food and good time.

I saw their menu online, the "Shared plates" section somehow made me think it's a groupy place, but not quite, not even their food had large portion. However, I still suggest this place for groups, to share the food and share the cost (o'u≦o)☆彡

The Pan-Seared Scallops with peas and sweet corns, my all time favorite, sauteed and soft, deeelicious~

The Crab Crusted & Rsted Portobello Mushroom. Yeah.. the blood sauce somehow looked weirdly pink in the photo... Little salty.

The Yellowfin Tuna Tartare, I tasted the tuna, where was the yellowfin?

The sashimi cocktail, too small to share, but it tasted good~

The Cotes d'Agneau, my friend said it's the cod (one of my love), and they ordered 2x, may I have 1 more piece? :P

The ribs, you couldn't go wrong with these!

The Kobe Beef Mafe Aux Legum, wonder if they still have this. I think I had 2 potatoes from this pot... :( also some very spicy pepper inside. My friends who had the meat said it was very good..

The Creme Brulee with strawberries on top and fruits inside :P

The Chocolate Explosion, another name for Lava cake XP

The Hazelnut ice cream and...

The Mocha ice cream~~
