Parc Fermé x Bisquit Cognac
A lovely date night with my love courtesy of Parc Fermé restaurant and Bisquit cognac, a cognac which is found and made in the cognac region of France. The 6 course evening was much needed after a year of experiencing the same food everywhere we went for dinner, when I say the same I really mean food that is overrated, not worth the price and or bland. Not knowing what to expect I googled and was pretty excited to have been afforded the opportunity to be a part of such an informative evening filled with really amazing food. Personally, I have never had crispy deep fried spaghetti prawns, duck confit, crusted seared salmon, beef tenderloin, and mouth watering chocolate fondant dessert topped with unlimited rounds of quality cognac in one sitting so I felt blessed to say the least.
I’m just here enjoying the good life and you can too if you buckle up and continue journeying on with me, i’m taking you where others haven’t taken you before *wink*.

We were welcomed with VS Bisquit Cognac Cocktail with cucumber and ginger. VS is the one that is normally mixed in cocktails as it is full of fresh fruit aromas
I have a hunger for trying out new spots and this is the ONE people – very inviting. This lovely place is situated in the heart of Sandton the hub of sophistication and elegance, Parc Fermé is bringing back glamour into JHB restaurant / dining. Surprisingly amazing wifi too – ok maybe not surprisingly this is Sandton after all. The appeal of the place is how it looks in the evening and fully experiencing the beauty of the city, the main attraction is said to be the spaghetti prawn starter and I fully agree – wow I’m such a foodie.
The music made everything more enjoyable it’s the science to a better dining experience trust me.
I can’t remember the last time I dressed up and as much as I appreciate the ordinariness of my days it’s equally important to go out and enjoy a mouthwatering meal midweek which is paired with cognac.
That evening woke everything up inside of me no lies.
Kumnandi eSouth Africa.
