FOOD, Food reviews, Hunter, Uncategorized HUNTER’S 1-MONTH CELEBRATION AT NOVA 28 February 2011

We headed to NOVA for Hunter’s 1-month birthday, a lovely French restaurant that does fabulous set lunches (88? for 2 courses, 108? for 3 courses). It’s chill, cozy interior makes for a lovely relaxed lunch, and the service is always polite and attentive. We especially love their food, it’s very French and simply delicious! In fact, we were there for Valentines Day last week and liked it so much we decided to go back to celebrate Hunter’s 1-month, also because it’s walking distance for us so we could take him out in his Bugaboo.

All the dishes were spot-on and executed beautifully. The portion sizes are very decent, I don’t think they reduce the sizes as compared with their regular priced menu. The set lunch price is so reasonable, we’ll be back for sure 🙂 Only regret? Wish they updated the choices more frequently!

Homemade apple tart with vanilla ice cream

    I’m going to be very naughty:

    “omg! Look at all the food Hunter missed on his one month birthday!!!!??!!! 🙁 “

    Hehehe! Just kidding 😛

    I am glad that you are truly blessed with a wonderful, healthy son and a great family too!

    You know, I have a friend on FB that has albums of her son for every month of his life starting with a month old!!! He is not 41 months and so has 41 albums!!!
