Yup, you drooled over the photos, you waited for it, and here it finally is - here's the text for this post...!

Tonight my old Chef (that is, my old boss) treated my family to the most wonderful dinner at his new restaurant. He moved restaurants a couple of months ago, and here is some of his work...

He's currently posted at JJ's Bar and Grill, in the Crown Entertainment Complex.

Starters: 1 Dozen oyters, half florentine, half Kilpatrick

Entrée: Crayfish risotto

Tasting plate: Veal balls (centre), grilled scallops (back, left), bruschetta (back, right), grilled prawns (front, right), grilled calamari (front, left)

That calamari was fantastic! So fresh and tender, without even a hint of rubberiness.

Main: Mum & Dad chose Rare Angus beef with deep fried zucchini flower stuffed with ricotta and basil.

I had, grilled barramundi with the zucchini flower.

Side: Perfect roast potatoes with rosemary.

Just check out the inside of that steak. Drool.

Dessert: Fresh fruit platter.

Wow! How fabulous.

I could not fault the meal at all, everything was delicious. We all know that I never really enjoyed working at the restaurant, but stayed for much longer than I should have because the pay was good, and my boss was wonderful (as a boss and as a chef). But you really don't need to take my word for it, just check out the above photos!

Chef rocks.
