Breads - very high quality butter roll, baguette and wholemeal bread, especially love the butter roll.
Seasame crisp, hummus, orange macaron with apple jelly, cream cheese cookie. The hummus was very pure, with a lovely spice twist.
Gillardeau oysters, fresh ginger, lemon gel, cucumber granita
As recommended by the manager, the oyster was a very lovely start. The oysters were big in size, with a very fresh and clean taste. Accompanied by fresh ginger,lemon gel and cucumber granita, which made the overall flavor was really refreshing.
Grilled bonito fish, spinach puree, pear, turnip, "Dundee-Peeky"
Bed on a beautiful green spinach puree, the grilled bonito fish was very tender, with a twist of sweet-soy flavor. The pear and turnip nicely pairs the high-flavor fish.
Napoleon cake: vanilla cream, caramel and coffee ice-cream
The signature Nalopeon, which is also another recommendation by the manager, was really a bomb - the best napoleon cake ever. The vanilla cream base was creamy and have the perfect level of vanilla flavor.
The best thing of the piece was definitely the flaky and extremely crispy pastry itself. The first cut in the picture tells everything. It is really a pity that i didn't record down the crispy sound when i cut it. Speechless - go try it by yourself.
