My other love

On Saturday, we celebrate my dear friend Jess's b-day party at Joe Fortes. The outfit I wore you've all seen before. I just added my Erickson Beamon cuff and changed the sandals to my yellow ones.

I decided that from now on I will also share with you my other love other than fashion: FOOD. I'm not really into clubs/bars/pubs but one thing i really enjoy are great restaurants with good food. So from now on I will also add a little restaurant review.
As I said we dined at Joe Fortes. The restaurant has a very old world feel like u stepped back into the 20's or 30's. This time though we dined on their rooftop patio which had a more relaxed atmosphere.


I had the Surf and Turf: a sirloin steak, jumbo tiger prawns, fresh herb mashed potatoes, summer vegetables and Cabernet jus.
I have to tell you I was very disappointed by this dish. The mashed potato felt more like mashed parsley and it had the same taste. The Cabernet jus was not enough and the dish overall was very dry. I would seriously not recommend this.


My BF had the Pork Chop with mashed potatoes, maple port reduction and apple honey compote. I think from everybody at the table he was the only one fully satisfied by his choice. I did not try the dish but he definitely recommends it.


My friend Heidi had the Cedar Smoked Wild Salmon with sweet pea ravioli, forest mushrooms, tomato and edemame. She personally did not like it because she thought the sauce was too much and took away from the flavour of the fish but I personally thought it gave it the just the right amount of flavour. I personally find fish very unflavourful so I personally recommend it.( I had a bite from this dish)


The one dish I keep thinking about and I would probably order it the next time I would dine at Joe Fortes is the Seafood Linguini with prawns, scallops, mussels and basil marinara sauce. Although the 2 people at the table that ordered that found empty mussel shells, I still thought it was the most delicious dish and also one of the more affordable ones.


As for dessert, I always have the Chocolate Lava Cake with vanilla gelato and cherries. Its really decadent and rich but its so yummy.
