Macarons @ Levain Boulangerie & Patisserie

可是这一次我的目的是马卡龙 ~
There are many yummy pasty, cake and food serve here
but for this visit my target is the macarons ~

Choices and prices:
the more you buy the cheaper it is...

Macarons here are spelt with double 'o'

一盒十个 (RM30):
左边上层: 黑醋栗、加纳黑巧克力两个、开心果和百香果& 芒果
下层 :覆盆子、三重巧克力、 绿茶、咖啡和草莓
10 in a box (RM30):
9 different flavours
from left top: Cassus (blackcurrant), Ghana Dark Chocolate x2, Pistache and Fruit De La Passion & Mango
botton: Framboise (raspberry), Triple Chocolate, Macha (green tea), Macchiato (coffee) & Fraise (Strawberry)

比起巧克力口味的 我更喜欢水果口味的
i personally prefer the fruity flavour ones compared to the chocolate flavour ones
the raspberry, strawberry, mango and blackcurrant are pretty good with their distintive flavours while green tea is kinda mild

因为价钱不一样 而我又懒惰排多一次队 下一趟吧
(在这里是先付钱 再到马卡龙柜台去选然后外带或是在店里享用)
my only regret is did not get to try the one with durian flavour
as it is priced differently and i was too lazy to queue again
(for purchase of the macarons pay first, then choose and collect at another counter either take away or eat it)

Vineria IT @ Bangsar Shopping Centre

在 BSC Vineria IT 的晚餐
Dinner @ Vineria IT, BSC

Starter on the house:
bread served with vinegar in olive oil

Zuppa Di Pesce (RM24):
蕃茄汤底的海鲜汤 味道不会太浓
Tomato based seafood soup
light and tasty with croutons

Al Fritto Di Mare (RM36):
炸过的乌贼增加了不同的口感 很特别的配搭
Pizza with deep fried calamari and prawns
we find it quite a good combination as the deep fried calamari give a different texture to the bite compared to the non-fried calamari
love the thin and crispy pizza crust too...

Pasta Special (RM58):
白酒调味的扁长意粉和四只大虾 份量足够两个人分享
虾只很新鲜肉质富有弹性 意粉则煮得刚好有少许的嚼劲
fettucini in white wine sauce served with 4 very large prawns
portion is kinda big and it is good enough for 2 person
the prawns are fresh and succulent while the pasta is well done with a little chew
