21. Delifrance

Other than the soggy and over spiced basil spaghetti, the rest we tried in this restaurant is great. Must try item is the chocolate cake served with vanilla ice cream. It doesn’t look like much but the cake was so moist and uses very good quality chocolate, not sweet which perfectly match the smooth vanilla ice cream.
