BEEF BURGER Was disappointed I couldn’t try their signature hotdog bun bc they ran out of bun. However their beef burger with homemade patty tasted pretty delicious. A classic burger that can’t go wrong. Also saddened that there were no options to upgrade the fries to truffle fries. :(

Esora Welcomes Autumn With An Astounding New Menu. M E D I A T A S T I N G “YES, YES, YES" is only answer when an invitation to Esora comes your way (thank you Annette!). When I entered the restaurant, it was apparent Autumn had arrived with beauty and grace in their beautiful space. Framed by the updated floral centrepiece behind the open kitchen, Chef-owner Koizumi and his team worked quietly, as though in deep reverence of the fine ingredients they handle. Our menu, curated by Chef himself, comprised of lunch and dinner items. We also got to try the tea-pairing as well. A few people had told me it elevates the dining experience - they‘re right. The five teas, of which only one was served hot, complemented the dishes very well, adding new flavour dimensions of floral, smoky, milky and vanilla-sweetened, to each deliciousness. We began with Chef Koizumi's special dashi, an opener-of-appetite made of two kinds of kombu and a touch of yuzu. An airy-light monaka wafer sandwiching foie gras terrine, Japanese persimmon and a myoga salad was next. Then came the inevitably-breathtaking Esora Hassun, a tableau on a tray with the splendour of the season captured in six edibles nestled in fall’s vivid foliage. We enjoyed them in the recommended sequence, starting with the barracuda sushi in nori wrap and ending with the Shiitake mushroom flan adorned in abalone before cleansing our palate with a Japanese gooseberry. Chef’s wife Maasa arrived at this point, bearing a pot with a stunningly presented pigeon prepared in two ways, and plated with lime kosho. The closing carb of hairy crab donabe was exceptional - so comforting and sweet with plenty of shredded crab meat. For dessert, we had a pretty pear sorbet that reminded Annette of her favourite Solero popsicle. After that was the magnificent wasanbon caramel ice-cream served with housemade kuromitso and an avalanche of finely grated Tokushima white truffle. It was ambrosial! Autumn’s petit fours tasted as lovely as summer’s (the melon ice-cream mochi was for me, the best of the lot).

Ohmi Wagyu (included in 6 course lunch menu at $138++) This tasted as good as it looked - fat, buttery, and fragrant. The whole slab of juicy wagyu sits atop white maitake puree which has a more mellow taste, and crowned with whole black maitake which is stronger in earthiness. 🔸 The wagyu, and the entire meal, was so good, that I immediately booked my dinner slot. And my dinner is finally happening this Saturday.. Can't wait!

Ribbed For Your Pleasure Alittle tashi’s grilled lamb ribs ($26++) was probably the least aesthetically pleasant dish that nice, but it was arguably the most delicious dish on the table that night. Marinated in mint yogurt, these ribs are slow cooked for 6 hours before being plated alongside a serving of pickled beetroot. The result is outstandingly juicy and tremendously tender meat that slides off the bone with its semi gelatinous fat. It’s mildly gamey, not quite enough to be off-putting, and the flavors within are moderate. There’s a nice bit of char, which lends a nice bit of smokiness to these tender ribs. These lamb ribs might not be the most radical, reality altering ribs in existence, but they’re addictive enough to eliminate the concept of a ‘paiseh’ piece and result in a hunger game over the last luscious lamb rib.

Bruh, I’m Like, So Baked Right Now Lmao Alittle tashi is built from the ground up on a tapas/sharing plate concept, so the Baked River Prawn ($32++) does raise a whole lotta eyebrows as it seems to be in complete rebellion of said concept. A colossal river prawn is butterflied right down the middle and baked, and is then draped atop a bed of crispy shiitake garlic rice like one of your sexy French girls. Ginger scallion sauce is then squirted right down the prawn’s crack for a little extra excitement and flavor. It wasn’t as fresh as it should’ve been, but it ain’t all that bad in all honesty. The crispy shiitake garlic rice would be better off with a more pungent garlic flavor, but other than that, it was pretty decent. Sure, the rice is kinda hard and crunchy rather than soft & fluffy, but they did put ‘crispy’ right there in the menu so you had ample warning of what to expect. The real reason why I thought this dish was rather weak when considering alittle tashi’s foundational concept of Asian fusion sharing plates was mainly down to that river prawn. It’s large enough to be shared between two, but when you’ve got a ménage a trois or more, that prawn is under equipped for said task. And when you consider the fact that this dish is $32++, it’s real easy to believe that you’ve been cheated. Especially if you don’t use #BurppleBeyond. Tasty? Yes. Worth it? No. Hotel? Trivago.

Surf N Turf, Not Surfin Bird The bird is NOT the word here, as this unholy matrimony of roast pork belly and mussels is all about when porcine met mollusk. Yes I know, Crispy Pork Belly & Mussels? The name alone is crazy enough, but follow me down the rabbit hole and you’ll see how deep this goes. The mussels are just standard issue mollusks straight out of the shell, nothing special really. The crispy pork belly, on the other hand, was deliciously decent even on its lonesome. Sure, the rind could’ve been a lot crispier, but the juiciness of the superbly seasoned meat and the tantalizingly well cooked lard made the pork belly stand out. However, the thing that manages to seamlessly fuse the two elements together isn’t black magic. It’s a sweet & sour black tamari sauce, as I have been reliably informed by alittle tashi themselves. That sourness works well to cut through the admittedly negligible brininess from the mussels, as well as the fatty richness of the pork belly. Seafood excels when paired with sweetness, and the mussels really shone with that hint of sweetness, and so did the pork belly. It’s a daring dish, and it’s true, who dares wins. This dish was one of the two outstanding dishes that night, but I still can’t help but think that at $30++ for a plate, this was overpriced. Fortunately, with #BurppleBeyond, we did get another dish free with this baby, so it made that $30 oh so absolutely worth it.

[Jam at Siri House] - Belinjo Crackers Crab Fat Crema ($13). I thought it was quite a bold decision to use belinjo cracker as not many people like the bitter aftertaste. I have to say the kitchen smartly balanced it with the crab fat crema, giving it a touch of acidity. On a culinary angle, I applaud the team for turning simple ingredients and elevating them into a delicious dish. As a consumer I may think twice about the price. L .

With Chef Ming of Lolla and Park Bench Deli fame helming the kitchen, it’s of little surprise that the Bikini ($16) sandwich was the favourite amongst everything we ordered at Jam at Siri House. Cured meat, truffle oil and a devilishly good trio of gouda, mozzarella, scamorza are piled onto toasted milk bread. Conceptually simple but executed to perfection. It was so good we ordered two portions

Meaty Mondays Best Mondays While their 8 Colors Set is a little dear at $98++, you can rest assured that the pork being served is serious top shelf quality, as the pork is from the highly prized Hungarian Mangalitsa pigs. Those piggies are basically Hungary’s version of the famous Spanish Iberico pigs, and they are every bit as delicious. The eight marinades slathered on the pork bellies are (from lightest flavored to heaviest), original, wine, honey ginger, curry, herb, miso, red pepper paste and kalbi. While the first three marinades were effectively there only in spirit, it allowed the superb natural flavors of the pork belly to really steal the show. The pork is fatty but utterly unctuous, and so so tremendously tender. All the flavors taste exactly as expected, but the miso & kalbi marinated ones daintily danced away with my heart thanks their stellar flavors. There’s always a waitstaff who’ll patrol your general area and cook your meats for you. They’re pretty on the ball too, so all you gotta do is kick back and turn those Monday blues into a Monday boom.

#팔색삼겹살 8 Colours (Mangalica Pork Belly) Set. This $98++ set meal for 4 pax comes with a large chigae hotpot, fresh green lettuce, heaps of dangkong (soy sprouts) and kimchi on the hotplate placed strategically downstream of the pork (so that the veg gets cooked in blistering hot oil which oozes out naturally as the pork crisps). Drinks are extra charge, at $2 per large glass of iced poricha. Mangalica Pigs are small, cute and furry. This could have worked well in their favour had they not been so amazingly tasty and generously marbled as well. It is related to the European wild boar you see being roasted in Uderzo's comic strips, which I have wanted to eat when I was still Asterix's height. Mangalica samgyeopsal is amazingly well-suited for K BBQ's, as the founder of 8 Korea must have realised in a foodie eureka moment... I really learnt only five years ago on a family holiday that: pork bellies are tastier eaten only after they really really crisp, from a patient elder couple who ran a little samgyeopsal shop in Daehangno. This is somewhat surprising to me, because I have put many earlier meals of samgyeopsal with soju literally under my belt. Yet perhaps, it is not so surprising considering how soju can make one forget! Now that I think of it, this tallies well with a great aunt's recipe for loh bak, which also calls for sauteeing the pork belly till it blisters. I went to this restaurant at The Central on a weekend when it would be less crowded. #koreanfoodie

Enjoyable Samgyeopsal Had the 4 flavor set pork belly and we chose garlic, herb, miso and kalbi. I like the miso and kalbi the most. We also had the tender and yummy wagyu ribeye ($88 for 200g), plus the flavorful seafood tofu stew. The only disappointment was the kimchi pancake which did not taste much of kimchi.

If you love big breakfasts, the “Latino Eggs” ($25++) is ideal. The new weekend brunch menu has this for those with hearty appetites. It comprises of eggs scrambled with tomatoes and capsicums, and served with stewed black beans, guacamole, “Tajadas” (plantains) and an arepa (Venezuelan corn bread). Which makes it a refreshing change from the norm.

A Bestseller: The “Reina Pipiada” ($28++ for 3 pcs). Because we had fallen in love with the #arepas we had in Toronto earlier this year, it was imperative to get a serving of the mealy soft Venezuelan corn bread again, this time stuffed with Head Chef Tamara’s take on the classic “Reina Pipiada” of shredded chicken, mayo and guacamole.

“Tortilla De Langostinos” ($32++) Mexican Head Chef Tamara Chavez has just launched a Weekend Brunch Menu that promises to take your tastebuds across the countries of Latin America. Whether your preference is to go light with small plates of tapas to share or hit the hearty portions of mains, there are choices aplenty. As we perused the menu, a basket of complimentary fluffy bread drizzled with homemade Guajillo chili seed oil, thyme, Achiote oil and garlic landed on our table. We enjoyed munching on this while deciding on what to order. I eventually picked the “Tortilla De Langostinos” ($32++), a gorgeous omelette chockfull of sweet and springy Tiger prawns from Argentina. It came crowned in onions and fresh “chalaquita” (Peruvian salsa). Love the bright punch the latter two brought to the dish.
