Well, had the pre-fixe lunch yesterday at tenpenh with a friend, I have to say my socks were not blown off. My appetizer was a tasty salad with enoki mushrooms/candied walnuts, that I enjoyed, but the only vegetarian entree was a rather unexciting basket of steamed vegetables with peanut dipping sauce. Why must we vegetarians be permanently marginalized, why?? Desert was very good though-- a trio of brulees-- cocoanut, lime and coffee, and my friend got a bittersweet piece of chocolate cake with banana icecream. Overall, it was good but not great especially for the price. With a couple of drinks each/tip our bill came to about 75 clams. The decor is quite nice though, and our waiter was rather toothsome. In our after-lunch banter however, he just had to work in that he has a girlfriend, snubbed!!
