Been excited for this Michelin 2 star dinner for a while. But didn’t realise chef Guillaume Galliot is not here anymore.So we have ordered the tasting menu with wine pairing.Fired prawn ball, radish with cream cheese and deep fried potato with smoked salmon as welcome snack. They are all nice and make us more looking forward.Some bread before the dinner really start. Always like seaweed butter, flavour of ocean saltines. The butter texture here is more thick and won’t melt right away.Well, to me
So we have ordered the tasting menu with wine pairing.
Fired prawn ball, radish with cream cheese and deep fried potato with smoked salmon as welcome snack. They are all nice and make us more looking forward.
Some bread before the dinner really start. Always like seaweed butter, flavour of ocean saltines. The butter texture here is more thick and won’t melt right away.
Well, to me fresh oyster is always the best. Poached increased the oyster flavour, decreased the ocean aroma. All the effort, I mean presentation is perfect, it taste good, but is just doesn’t give me a WOW factor.
This lobster watermelon tart was great. Fresh lobster with different style, lobster salad and lobster slice, give it a different effect and flavour. Watermelon on the bottom, serve with caviar and avocado sauce. Freshness, saltiness and all different texture, not surprise is was good as all ingredients are just real fine level.
Duck foie gras was creamily moose, strong flavour which I enjoy a lot, even upgraded with the consommé jelly, balanced with the cheery burlat and serve with toasted bread.
My friend got a small appetite, so I had half of his dishes and is was not good. The flavour was just so different from mine, nearly like the food was turning bad, really.
Basil butter cooked John Dory was very nice. I don’t usually like western style fish, cos the meat are always tough. This fish was okay but taste so nice with the basil butter.
The veggies and shellfish on the side was fresh and nice, but the tomato mash was a little too salty.
I don’t eat beef and mine was switched to pigeon. Perfectly medium rare, texture was just good, juicy tender. But not the best pigeon I had, cos I like stronger aroma, there’s improve space on the special flavour of pigeon.
Cheese platter, got lots of selection for guest and fulfil different taste.
Not a fan of dessert, but I love almond. Sour and almond? I didn’t know it could match, but yes, quite nice.
I really like the chef got my likeness of coconut as well. Coconut cake base and the mini coconut meringue was so my cup of tea.
These platter was little too sweet for me but I’ve tried it all. And the hazel chocolate and citrus one was okay for me.
So far, this experience was just alright to me. The server was friendly, environment was good, but for Michelle 2 star? The food was good, but It really didn’t surprise me.
