Elly Store

We didn’t manage to have swim lesson on Tuesday because of the rain so we went over to Cluny Court for tea and visited the new Elly store there. The grand opening is next Sunday, 4 Mar, at 2pm. They will be launching their new collection, Elly Loves Balloons, and there will be storewide 15% discount for that day!

Taratata Bistrot

I’ve read many good reviews of Taratata Bistrot so Adrian and I had dinner there on Friday evening. The appetisers (French onion soup and lobster bisque) and dessert (creme brulee) that we ordered were good but we were let down by our main courses.

I ordered the Duck Confit but it came with green lentil instead of the white bean ragout that I’d read about in the reviews. The skin was lovely and crisp and the meat tender on one side of the duck but the other side was clearly overcooked and tough. Adrian didn’t enjoy his rabbit leg very much either.

I guess they were just having an off night and I’d love to give Taratata Bistrot another try but we don’t have very many date nights as it is. The service there was very good though so no issues with that whatsoever.
