Friday last week, I was invited for lunch at the Chef's Table. Chef's Table is ground zero of Chef Bruce Lim's commendable effort at serving Filipino Fine Dining to the general public. Armed with a diploma from Le Cordon Bleu, Chef Bruce along with his team of chefs at the Chef's Table, aims to serve diners Filipino food "prepared using global culinary standards".

It was a very long lunch, with a spread that is not only an abundant feast for the tummy but also a tantalizing feast for the eyes. Naturally, there is a lot of beautiful food to share, and one post doesn't seem to do it justice.

So, let's do this in a series, starting with the appetizers, and some libation.
