I wanted to try on Wed (Oct 18) during their soft opening but it was all full at lunch time. So I came again on Saturday night (Oct 20)and it was surprisingly just a 30 minute wait (I thought it will be more than an hour!). 3 of us started with the housemade sangria and shared these dishes together:

Very smooth and creamy (though I don't mind chucky). But the brandade flavor was quite subtle. I preferred a bit more seasoning.

The hamachi was of good quality and quite refreshing in taste. Better than most fusion Japanese restaurants at least....

Too ordinary, too predictable in taste.

This was the dish that sounded intriguing to me as I am a BIG fan of sweetbreads (the thymus glands, of course) We split it among 3 people so I only had little empanada and couldn't detect much sweetbread. The onion jam portion was overwhelming compared to the topping, overshadowing all the other ingredients. But I need to eat this again myself to get a fair assessment.

Portion was large compared to the other dishes (esp. given its price point). Skin wasn't the crispy type and was a little sticky to the teeth, but the meat was tender and moist. Well seasoned and went well with the spiced apple puree. Overall I liked this dish.

Besides the ribs there was more meat underneath. Nice and tender.

Quite like this rendition of bone marrow with meat mixed in, making it less greasy and heavy especially that it was baked enough (really don't like underbaked marrows...)

The combination of the marrow mixture with the crispy crumbs, relish, and onion jam was quite ubiquitous, yet delicious nonetheless.

The burger was juicy and not too dense, a tasty burger with good texture. But if you don't tell me I wouldn't know it was iberico pork, and the foie gras (which was a paste underneath the patty) was almost indiscernible.

The avocado puree wasn't particularly special, but the pickled cucumber was a good refreshing condiment!

Absolutely my kind of dessert. The goaty flavor was strong enough in the sorbet which was addictive! The honeycomb was quite sticky rather than crunchy, though flavowise it was good. The walnut "gelatin" was fine. I will definitely come back for this one!

Also enjoyed this dessert which combined savory and sweet peanut flavors (in different forms) together, nicely balanced by the blue fruit sorbet

For the first try, most dishes were well-executed and delicious. Some required a bit more featured ingredients. Overall I found 22 Ships quite promising and will come back for more.
