Tabou: Let's Do Lunch

Left: Kir Royale.
Coming in on the last day of the month, our final GFM lunch was everyone's favourite cute French Bistro in Surry Hills, Tabou. Rare roasted duck breast with blood orange, watercress and kipfler potatoes was the menu of the day, so we saved it til a delectable last. I felt like a real stayer fitting in as much as I could right up to the dying light of October.

As always with these lunches you have to have extra. We started with a Kir Royale to toast the month and welcome in November. With our mains we threw in some blanched snow peas plus a lovely, and architecturally impressive, beetroot, walnut and fetta salad.

Of course we needed afters. The PoD went for the creme brulee, served in a wide shallow dish allowing for maximum caramelised sugar crust. M sensibly partied with the Dessert Assiette and MN, L and I shared the cheese plate. Light on description today, but plenty of pix. I'll let them do the talking :)
