If there's any language in the world that I would like to learn next to mastering my Mandarin, it would be French. Oh how I dream of having the French accent similar to that of Celine in the movie "trilogy" Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight. She speaks in such poetic tone that is just so nice to listen to. The same is true for my colleague G who's fluent in French. From him, we learn the proper pronunciation of certain words and while I still struggle to say the word "escargot" properly, I really do enjoy learning a new word each day.
It was a very simple Afternoon Tea simply because we went late and the choices were very limited. We will definitely do better next time and will try to check out L'Atelier too. Nonetheless, we now know why Joel Robuchon is one of the most respected chefs in the industry. I can't wait to go back to try more of his dishes and I hope he'll be around too!
Le Salon De the de Joel Robuchon is located at the 3rd floor, The Landmark, 16 Des Voeux Road, Central, Hong Kong. For reservations, call (852) 2166 9000.
