Restaurant Food Delivery Challenge : Château Dionne
A French Spread Within The Comforts of Home. Originating from Shanghai but cuisine of French, Chef Andy Choy delivers to diners in confidence. I placed the order via WhatsApp with a friendly and informative good customer service who patiently heard me out and gave recommendations.
The individual boxes were placed along with the menu and receipt snug in a carrier box with a personalised sticker giving a sense of branding.
I could hardly contain my excitement as I unboxed the package whilst being teased by the aroma of truffle. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of food coming out of the box. It felt like Doraemon emptying his bag.
The baguette emitted a delightful crusty crunch as I broke into it with a generous portion of truffle butter. The Rougie Foie Gras Terrine had a very smooth texture and a rich flavour of Foie Gras. Though the escargots were slightly overcooked, probably a result of the car ride, they were nicely seasoned with garlic herb butter
The succulent roasted chicken was nicely garnished with fragrant herbs, a hint of truffle oil and was oozing with jus as I took bite after bite. Despite having kept it in the fridge for a second seating, it was still juicy when reheated. The Paella Dionne had a generous amount of seafood and the rice with a soft texture coated with a lovely tomato base & saffron
Completing the meal was a platter of meticulously handmade desserts. Aesthetically, much love went into the details which reflected in flavour. I feel the price was reasonable given the quality and spread I had.
Though it was seemingly simple at a glance, much love and though has gone into the creation of what seems like a master piece.
