Brasserie Le Fauchon - Set Lunch

Set Lunch with Sister and Mom
I could still remember during my sister pregnancy, she was still able to come all the way from Tin Shui Wai to Central Soho for great food with us. I couldn't believe how she was able to bear those weight in front of her, but at least she could have something delicious and spent more times with me, and the family.

This restaurant is our family all-time favourite simply because they have the best french bread ever to serve along soup or salad. I enjoyed so much dipping in hot soup, to fulfill my crave before the main comes.
According to my sister and mom, they both agreed that their oxtail dish was perfectly tender and juicy, with red wine sauce accompanying. And also, I love how their sets can come with both salad and soup of the day, without struggling between the 2 choices, like normal soho restaurants around.

Peach and shrimp apple salad, seafood clam soup

Pan fried salmon fillet with white wine cream sauce

Oxtail braised in red wine with tagliatelle pasta

Dessert of the day: Chocolate brownie
