I was recently at Dinner in Oslo with Mr. B. Lovie for my pre-birthday dinner and we enjoyed the 3 course menu with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.
First Course: Dim Sum (incl. fried spinach – one of my favorites!)
Second course: King size shrimp and scallops in a Szechwan Sauce (above) and Gongbao duck & chicken served with cashew nuts (below)
Third course: Various mango infused desserts including a delightful vanilla pudding topped with a mango sauce
