Agnello ($42++)

I N V I T E D T A S T I N G
Let me be clear - I am not a person who likes lamb but this one from "28 Wilkie" was unlike any I have ever had.
The beautiful herb-encrusted rack pictured above, proved to be an anomaly. There was none of that smell which is the thing that turns me off every time I come face to face with this meat.
Somehow between the talented culinary skills of Chef Kenny and the discerning tastebuds of Co-owner Benjamin, some magic took place, and I found myself enjoying this piece of lamb with great satisfaction.
Fabulously tender and juicy, the rack of 6-month-old New Zealand lamb was an absolute revelation for me as to what lamb could be. The accompaniments of potato, brussel sprouts were lovely too but I have to say, it was the roasted garlic purée that stole my heart. It's so good I could have eaten it on its own.
