Pumpkin soup with caramelised pork bits inside which was a pleasant surprise.

Escargots in China are really an oxymoron, you can imagine how they taste, even in a wonderful restaurant like Maison Boulud. They were okay at best.

Everyone raves about the DB burger, I’m not a big fan of beef, so it’s difficult for me to comment. The portion is massive!

Desserts are amazing… disregarding the fact that I have a soft spot for desserts. The chocolate mousse with cookie bits is great, but the mocha tart with ganache and a side of whiskey ice cream even better.

And what’s not to love about these tiny macaroons!

Dinner is a treat for special ocassions but brunch is an affordable affair. :)

    Hi Rebecca! I would imagine it’s a little different, this is the Beijing outfit of Daniel Boulud and probably the equivalent of Daniel in NY, doing fine dining rather than bistro or cafe style food. He just opened a bistro in Singapore at Marina Bay Sands Casino, and I’m looking forward to check it out when I go home!

    The burger looks really crap. Fine dining? The price yes but the food, it look really bistro to me.

    @Dario this was brunch at bistro prices, I haven’t been to dinner in a while… definitely high end prices, and probably fine dining food. foooood snob!
