After almost being missing in action for the whole weekend until Monday, I felt so refreshed and energized for the week ahead. The short break was so good, it's almost like spending a weekend in the skies. And yesterday's dinner calling from Mr.L was the seal of the greatest weekend of all times!
And the Beluga caviar is best paired with a Krug Champagne!
Krug served in a unique Champagne glass.
Perhaps the greatest name in the history of champagne that lives for many years in a bottle is none other than KRUG. And to drink a truly great king of champagnes, Big E brought some wonderful limited edition glasses that she has been keeping for god-knows-how-many-years! On the palate, it has a very creamy bouquet, fine bubblies, a little toasty and has a long and lingering crisp finish. The Krug Grande Cuvee is a real mosaic of flavours with a blend of 40 to 50 wines, 20 to 25 crus and 6 to 10 different years. It's easily above RM600 a bottle. The Dom Perignon pales in comparison.
Oh, the food is a little different from what we have been having most of the time in Imbi Palace. This time, Mr.L decides to do without the sharksfin & abalone (due to obvious reasons) and we have a number of light dishes. We started off with some fresh oysters, a bowl of chicken and sharks bones soup which is so flavourful and satisfying. Then we have the boiled beef (chinese style as opposed to the ones I had at La Suisse), steamed fish and also the Kobe beef which is pan seared to medium rare. To finish things off, we all had a bowl of birds nest as dessert.
Mr.L being a man of his words did not give me my 20 bottles of Mouton but rather something even much better to make up that number. He offered us two bottles of the very sought after Burgundy which both of them is in my Wine Dream list and I'm so estatic that I can finally proclaim that I had drank it!
And yesterday night, we had 2 bottles of Burgundy by DRC. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, often abbreviated to DRC, is an estate in Burgundy, France. It is widely considered among the world's greatest wine producers, and DRC bottles are among the world's most expensive.
The expensiveness of food and drinks did not just stop there. The last ultimate digestive for everything good has to be Mr.L's private collection of this 1958 Glenfarclas single malt whisky!
I don't know exactly how much dinner costs but one thing for sure - I cannot afford this! This is really better that what I've bargained for so thanks Mr.L for all of these! When can we start betting again?
Doesn't the "e" fits into this post very well? Eiling, expensive, and eighth heaven.
