As I am writing this, I’m fighting a number of things. First, after I type everything it’s not always saved. So I seem to be writing, saving, and not seeing anything. This is causing me to do many iteration of writing and saving. Second, the pictures don’t seem to show up. The slideshow feature appears to work well. I may suspend my posts until I return back in order to properly post.
As the title says, we are fighting a serious case of jet lag. After dining at Mott32, the plan was to kill some time and then head over to dinner at cafe Siam. We had walked over to the observation wheel but it did not appear to be open. We decide to head back to the hotel, grab a nap, then head out fresh again. The plan was to nap about an hour. I woke up, but was still really groggy. Peggy and Kaela were completely knocked out. Needless to say we missed our reservation and I had no intention to go back to central during prime commute time.
After some deliberation, we decided to stay at the hotel and dine in for dinner. Luckily for us, we had quite a few choices at the hotel we were staying at. We settled on Le soliel. When I was doing research, this restaurant popped up as one of the best new restaurants. Kaela was still passed out, so Peggy and I decided to grab a quick bite. I was still sleepy and wasn’t too interested in eating when we arrived at Le soliel. We ordered crab asparagus soup, seafood rice served in coconut, and braised ox tail. The soup was delicious and if I were awake, I probably would have enjoyed the meal more. Peggy loved the rice. The braised oxtail was interesting, I think was able to dissect the recipe and will give it try myself. One of the things that I like to do when dining at nice places is to figure out how to recreate the dish.
