Last Thursday, 10 hungry Burpplers gathered for an incredible dinner at Symmetry. It’s safe to say we left that night with a way-too-full belly, new friendships made, and a few extremely embarrassing photos of greedy people stuffing their faces. Props to the extremely talented Jonathan Wong who kindly took all the photos that night (follow him on Burpple @Jonathan Wong) !
For a start, Symmetry’s version of a bread basket/ nuts on your table- grapes in a cocktail glass with ice to keep them cold. Certainly was refreshing!
One of the group’s favourite dishes of the night- Tomatoes with Basil, Burrata and Honey Olive Emulsion. A definite must try when you come to Symmetry.
I present to you: The Burpple Lighting Crew. If you’re in a restaurant that is too dark or if lighting isn’t so good that day, fear not! Simply turn the flash on with your camera in video mode, and shine the light in an angle that eliminates shadows on the dish you are trying to capture.
Yes, as you can see, we were very determined to take good photos that night. Personally, I got tired after lighting a few dishes, I just couldn’t wait to dig in… oops ;)
Belle and Eleanor in action, while Celest patiently waits to dig in:
Ok, here come the incriminating photos. Please don’t judge us.
First up: Jonathan attacking the spatchcock. Credits to Alain who took this series of shots.
I was forced to do this by Rachel, I swear I’m not usually like this..haha
Next up, the always-elegant Rachel Xie gets a taste of her own medicine..
Last but not least, Alain himself, the villain who captured all these photos:
Now, on to the more glamorous. Here’s what Rachel said when she first saw this picture below, “Errbardy so gorjuss”. Obviously she had too much to eat and her talents in writing and spelling kinda escaped her, but I have to say that I concur. We do look great, don’t we? Must be the glow radiating from our happy bellies. Alain mentioned that we look just like the picture hanging above us, rather apt, isn’t it? Anyways, I wanna thank Jonathan, Celest, Sze Wee, Belle, Eleanor, Christine, Alain, Karen and Rachel for coming to dinner and being such a fun bunch!
