For the past few weeks, I have not been that active on social media. The truth is, nothing exciting has been going on and I have spent most of my days focusing on my job. I have skipped evening events because I felt too tired to attend them. The only times that I get to see daylight is during weekends but that's when I tend to stay in bed to recover from the preceding draining weekdays.
I am kind of hoping that this cycle is going to come to an end soon. Luckily days are getting longer again and to break the winter blues, I will soon escape to the US to fuel up on some vitamin D. I'm sure that during that trip and after I will be posting more regularly again.
Yesterday was another day where I would have loved to stay in bed all day long but I had some evening plans and I went to Luxembourg City for evening drinks with my blogger friend Juliet at Octans. There we bumped into Anna, another blogger, and it was a pleasure to see her as well.
After the drinks I went to Giallo, a new Italian restaurant for a girls' dinner. We had the lower area of the restaurant to ourselves and I shared a table with a group of bubbly Polish girls.
The menu wasn't huge but it made it easier to choose the dishes. I was pleasantly surprised to see that there were more than just one vegetarian option.
The decoration was unique - one wall consisted of a waterfall.
This was the hors d'oeuvre to share: vegetable tempura and fish balls. There was another hors d'oeuvre which came with meat but I didn't have it.
My starter: Potato flan with cod quenelle. It was really good!
My main course was pasta stuffed with aubergines and creamy burrata mozzarella. Another good choice that I had made.
As you can see, the food looked really good and so was the quality. The white wine we had with the meal was excellent I finished it off with an espresso. The service was friendly and attentive. Giallo is definitely not your average Italian restaurant. The dishes are carefully prepared, visually appealing and rendering a modern and sophisticated version of Italian cuisine.
