Dinner that night didn’t start off well. I baked two Hokkaido chiffon cakes for the boy and dropped by Saint Pierre early that afternoon to pass it to the restaurant. I do understand that some restaurants do not allow outside food to be consumed within, but I went to try my luck.
In the afternoon 4.30pm, the restaurant called me twice. When I called back, a waitress picked up and said she wanted to confirm my reservation. When I went that night, the manager came to my table, before I ordered anything, and tell me they can’t let me have the cakes in the restaurant for hygiene reasons.
Each of us ordered a degustation menu ($148 per pax). It started with some sourdough bread, not a fan of hard and tough bread.
But we couldn’t eat it because there was no fork nor spoon on the table. The staff didn’t notice it. I had to wave for a long time before catching their attention to bring our utensils.
