Bistro Date Night

One day, my fellow graduate student decided to go out for dinner at our favorite French bistro, Yves Bistro in Alexandria. We initially chose this place because of its proximity to our supervisor's place and the metro station but because of the great food and service, we eventually became regulars.

Since we went there on a Friday night, they have a French lady singing French songs. She even goes around the bistro serenading all the diners.The serving is quite generous and for an Asian appetite, I feel that this is good for sharing.

Here's what we had:

They have a special menu that changes every week.

Crispy Risotto with Roasted Red Pepper Salad

Salmon with Lentils

After dinner, we really wanted to have dessert but we were quite full so we decided to move to the next store in order to try out their ice cream.

Cold Stone Ice Cream Shop

So many flavours!

Mixing the add-ins on a cold stone

I had the Coffee Lovers Dream (like-it size)

Joanna had the Cheesecake fantasy also in like-it size

I personally loved the coffee lovers ice cream because it had the right kick that i needed. the cheesecake fix was a bit too sweet for me but Joanna found it great.
