Finally got to try the Asian fusion restaurant Red Lantern with my roommate!
It was as amazing as expected.
I liked the décor (sorry, no photo. It was too dark anyway), and the food was just fantastic. The service, at around 9:30/10 p.m. on a Friday night was slower than I would have liked but not too surprising.
The lighting made it hard to take a decent quality photo without resorting to the embarrassment of using flash. But at least I did get a photo of the PERFECT special appetizer.
The crème brûlée, on the other hand, was a tasty dessert (you can’t go wrong) but could have been warmer. And don’t bother with the donuts. They’re just dry donut holes served with green tea ice cream, the only redeeming part of the dish. Yeah, we binged. It was worth it.
