Weekday Lunch Set

$38.00 · 2 Reviews

Helmed by classically trained French chef Christophe Lerouy, his eponymous restaurant in Stanley Street is fast becoming one of the most celebrated openings. The most value-for-money way to experience his cooking is to book in for the Weekday Lunch Set ($38 for three courses; $55 for five courses) — the Burpple community has nothing but praise for the dishes served. Chef Lerouy's finesse is evident in both the food's flawless execution as well as flavour pairings. Dishes that have the community waxing lyrical include the mindblowing combination of hamachi with yellow curry sauce, the delicate poached Japanese oyster in comte beurre blanc, and a bacon and chocolate petit four. You'll have to try it to believe it.

Astonishing first course from yesterday’s lunch, and this was after two incredible snacks.
The massive Japanese oyster, which was poached to perfection in its own water, arrived in a pool of light comte cheese soup, surrounded by little islands of miso and pear purée.
It‘s so scarily good I feared it would go downhill for the rest of the meal but that was not the case.
