Of pastas and beignets

It hasn’t been a month yet since i had breakfast at BLVD and i have already returned to try out their lunch/ dinner menu! That’s how impatient i am when it comes to satiating my appetite.

Those whom are close to me are well acquainted with my long-time love for pasta. I just have this soft spot for any pasta dish with cream sauce so it will always be an attractive choice to me whenever i see it on a restaurant menu. That’s why for my first assessment of BLVD’s lunch/ dinner selections, i ordered pasta. I even managed to persuade one of my besties, Aida to get another pasta dish too!

Linguini Vongole– Cream sauce | Short Neck Clams | Chilli Flakes | Roasted Garlic Chips

Long story short, i foresee myself frequenting BLVD for possibly more than once a week for their amazing pasta dishes! Both the Vongole and Carbonara equally earn the highest praise from me.  Not only are both dishes flavourful and seasoned to perfection, i also appreciate every element that the chef included in making such standout dishes. I can’t wait for my next trip to BLVD to test out their other pasta (and non-pasta) offerings!

What i was most excited to try was of course these beignets (pronounced “ben-yeys”)! Beignets are essentially doughnut balls or squares. I’ve been dying to get my hands on some beignets ever since Kim Kardashian made the whole world salivate with envy whenever she posted a powdered sugar-covered selfie of herself eating Cafe du Monde’s famous beignets in New Orleans. Naturally, i was incredibly excited when i saw beignets on BLVD’s dessert menu! I was doubly excited when i read that what would be served alongside these chocolate-filled beignets is a bowl of my favourite hazelnut ice cream. C’est magnifique!
