Ja & Ping
1. South Australian King Prawn with Tofu cooked 2 ways (Silken & Fried) and Eggplant 2 ways (pureed & deep fried)
One of my favourite dish. The hi light for me was the tofu & eggplant. The eggplant puree was creamy eating with the silken tofu.. so smooth and melt in my month. We all thought that the deep fried eggplant looks like deep fried banana in Thailand. lol
The scallops were a bit overcooked, the foie gras mousse was very subtle in flavour... The garlic flavoured bread crumbs & hazelnut on the side was interesting. Overall, this dish was a little too dry for my liking.
My first thought, chicken sounds so normal but then it was tasty. It smelt Asian for me... like soya sauce or that kinds. The chicken (sous-vide method) was beautifully pink and juicy. We also like the crisp skin with a sprinkle of sea salt. The puffed grains consists of buckwheat and quinoa giving the dish very fun crisp texture.
which was Pork belly with Cabbage cooked 4 ways : Red cabbage Jelly, Sauteed Canovo nero, Cabbage puree, Dehydrate Kale. This dish was also my favourite ! From starter which was very light until this hearty and rich dish, the flavour was very strong. The pork belly was as great as it should be. I like all condiments except the red cabbage jelly.. too weird.
Ping said that the Basil seeds doesn't make any flavour to the dish, maybe chef just put it for giving the fun texture. I do agree.
The chocolate lollipop was disappointed and I prefer the Blood orange jelly at SWEETNESS the patisserie to this one. But the nougat was delicious.
Flate white & Macchiato
The coffee were great.
very full by now (not drunk..hoho)
For my experience dining here, I do think it did worth money for the great creations ... Every savoury dishes pleased me just that their desserts were not my cup of tea.
