This weekend Memorial Day is celebrated in the U.S. and Pentecost in France. Three day weekend and time for barbecues. Of course I went to the deep country in Villiers-Louis where my Weber grill has taken up semi-permanent residence.

Minggu lalu diundang Groupon untuk Food Tasting di Fish & Co, EX. Fish & Co ini merupakan resto yang cukup terkenal & sudah ada banyak cabang nya di mall2 Jakarta & Surabaya. Acara dimulai 1/2 7 malam dimana banyak blogger yang berdatangan.
Platter yang terdiri dari nachos, fried calamari, fish nuggets, prawn fritters yang dihidangkan dengan 3 macam saus, yaitu spicy mango vinaigrette, tar-tar sauce dan tomato salsa. Platter ini cukup untuk 3-4 orang karena porsi nya mayan banyak. Untuk isi nya, yang paling gw suka fried calamari nya dan dicocol dengan tar-tar sauce.

Minuman yang di gelas jumbo, bener2 jumbo! Kemarin ini cuman cobain Jungle Breeze, campuran dari nanas, rambutan & buah tropis lain nya. Rasa nya segar & manis. Ini gelas nya bener2 gede, bisa buat 4 orang kalo menurut gw sih.
Lanjut ke Fish &…
