Backdated: 2nd wedding anniversary

On our actual anniversary, we were stuck at the gynae's clinic for more than 3 hours.. ended up that we did not manage to go for a nice lunch. So we made our way down to Relish on the 4th of June instead.

Relish has a 3-course set lunch for $26+++ or a 2-course set lunch for $22. Of course, I picked the 3-course!! Which woman can resist dessert??

Me: Spinach polenta with gorgonzola sauce and shitake mushrooms
G: Tomato and red pepper soup

The polenta was nicely done, very smooth, and the gorgonzola sauce and the roasted shitake mushrooms provided a very good balance of flavours. Gorgonzola has a strong but subtle flavour, and the mushrooms were meaty and very intense. Yumms!

The soup was well done too.. smoky red peppers were strongly tasted but not overwhelming. No picture though.. it would just be a sea of.. erm.. red.. LOL.

Me: Wild Rocket Burger with Sarawak Red Pepper Sauce
G: Seafood burger with lemon mayonnaise
Both burgers came with generous helpings of done-just-right thick fries. Yumms for a kantang-lover like me.

The beef burger was done to medium-well, just nice for me! The wild rocket made a good contrast to the creamy sauce. There were 2 sauces actually, a thick red pepper sauce that was just the right amount of spicy, and a more creamy sauce that I can't quite figure out.

G was not as pleased with his seafood burger though. I didn't try it as I do not take seafood, but he said that he could not taste the individual seafood items in the patty, and the lemon mayo was too overpowering. Ah well.

Me: Pandan-infused panna cotta with gula melaka sauce
G: Corn ice-cream with sweet corn
The panna cotta was a very good choice! The pandan flavour infused the entire custard and was well balanced by the gula melaka sauce. G commented it was too sweet but hey, who cares?? Creamy, smooth and flavourful.. enough for any girl to die for.. slurp.
His sweet corn ice cream was rather boring though. No picture too.. it would just have been a mass of yellow lor.. Heh.

The experience was also enhanced by the well-trained wait staff. Upon seeing me waddle in, they immediately offered a larger table (since I obviously can't hold my bag on my lap while eating), asked if I would like warm or cold water, and offered to do my burgers medium well instead of the norm of medium rare.

Overall verdict: Yes, go back again for a nice occasion. =)
