at Henri's Gallery
a meal! There's just no other way to describe it. It was fantastic.
Thank you Ken! Ken, on a previous visit to Macau, found Henri's
several years before and wanted to go back for another meal. He'd
described it as "out of this world," and we, too, were
looking forward to the experience. And, thankfully, we weren't
disappointed. It was without a doubt the best meal of the entire
sat down and basically told Henri to "bring food." He
asked a few qualifying questions and then served our meal. It
was outlandish and extravagant, but it was certainly worth it.
Henri brought African chicken, a meat dish, curried crabs and
spicy prawns. When we finished we ordered more of the curried
crab as it was out of this world.
only disappointment would happen long after we returned home.
We had one of our gourmet weekends with Ken and Darla and Jim
and Cheryl coming to our house. Anne and I decided to recreate
the meal at Henri's. I had found recipes for everything except
the curried crab. Frustrated at not finding the recipe I wrote
Henri a letter requesting the recipe. Along with the letter I
sent the picture that we took with him when we were there in the
hopes that he might remember us and provide the recipe. No luck.
I had to improvise and substitute another recipe (which, by the
way, wasn't the same but it wasn't bad!). So, Henri, if you ever
read this know that I was disappointed that you wouldn't provide
