My friend from Taipei is back in town, again, and we decided to get together with a couple of old friends of mine. Many, many moons ago, Rice was the one who first told me about a Taiwanese lady living in Paris who is very knowledgeable about wine, and it took a pretty long time for the three of us to finally sit down at the same table.
The request was for a bistro. Unfortunately it was a little late to book a table at ON Dining Kitchen and Lounge, so I got ourselves a table at sister restaurant Upper Modern Bistro instead. It's been a while since I last showed this place some love (since I've been spending my time at ON), and it's always good to revisit and check up on the place.
I arrived a little late thanks to a work emergency, and my friends had already opened the bottles of wine they had brought. Suddenly I realized that I brought along a couple of cheapies... but I guess I'll have other chances to make up for it.
I left the ordering up to the others, and we ended up going through a lot of starters.
Vacheron Mont d'Or - we asked for a "fresh" one, and it was nice and ripe.
