Mr Wasabi was so impressed with this place the first time round, that he suggested we visit this place again. I told my foodie friend who lives in Hong Kong who informed me that they had gone down hill, which i relayed back to Mr Wasabi.
Mr Wasabi choose to ignore her opinion and insisted I make a reservation.
We arrived for lunch where there were a couple of tables full and proceeded to order a few interesting dishes which we had not tired before, and items that I could eat due to my dietary requirements. which meant we had to for any foie gras etc..
Amouse Bouche – we were served with a small cup of cappuccino, Smoked Mackeral w foam & Diced cucumber and dill sauce w pickled tomato and Olives & Onion. The amouse bouche was different to what I was expecting. I was expected some salt cod, like what we had previously.
Bread Basket – consisted of a selection of breads and spreads
Banana butter – was made from chopped dehydrated bananas, which I found fairly interesting.
Chorizo – Chopped chorizo sausages mixed through this soft white bread.
Sour Dough – had very little sour flavour to it, espeically since it was a sour dough. though I must admit the bread itself was very soft and fluffy.
White Bread – were the softest bread I have had in a long time but this seems to be the norm in Asia where breads are light, soft and fluffy.
Fish Soup – consisted of one piece of tender snapper,more like a bisque with two prawns, & scallops. the soup was thick, nicely seasoned
Roasted Black Pork w Potato Pancake, Wild Mushroom and Dark Jus – Looked like if it had been sou vide and finished off in the pan. Very subtle pork flavour. The dish lacked seasoning, and was quite a boring dish to be honest
African Chicken w Polenta & Vegetables – this is basically similar to Nandos chicken where it was char grilled with lots of oil. Deboned wings served w a selection of vegetables. The polenta cake was not very nice. the include of the grilled tomato help cut through the fat of the chicken
Complimentary dessert consisting of the following:
Egg Tarts – these were small bite sized butter egg tarts with a nice flaky pastry. This was accompanied with a selection of seasoning which included vanilla, chocolate and cinnamon
Pistachio Friand –
We were glad we did not over order. The food was very average and I reminded Mr Wasabi that my friend did say it had gone down hill. I guess sometimes you just need to try a place for yourself as everyone tastebuds differs.
