Trafalgars Bistro Once Again

I ended an article on Trafalgars Bistro last month by saying "I should remember this place more often for lunch, brunch or dinner" (read more here). 

I am glad I remembered it today for a client event. As usual, Trafalgars Bistro did not disappoint. 

And the best aspect of this place is they let you lounge in peace. We spent 3 hours there while a couple of other tables were there before us and were still there when we left. This is what a real Bistro should be.

A great selection of wine, we opted to cheer the day with Avalon, a really nice Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

A second bottle meant two  corks that created much entertainment until lunch arrived.

Fresh looking, fresh tasting, their Grapefruit Salad, with house ricotta and grapefruit champagne vinaigrette, was an incredible choice.

The Warm Prawn & Orzo Salad was equally fresh and delicious.

The right food temperature, shaved fennel and lovely dressing - I really enjoyed it.

But this felt way too healthy to start the weekend. So a couple  orders of Bistro fries showed up.

Truffle oil, parmesan and herbs created flavour without losing a diner's fries taste.

Trafalgars Bistro is connected to Sweet Obsessions next door, giving the bistro the benefit of presenting a two-page dessert menu.

Hours of eating and drinking made selecting a dessert from those choices too overwhelming so I settled on one of their special creation - Neopolitan cake. Yes, it was all it promised to be.
