Pan seared gnocchi with beef ragout ($24)
One of the best gnocchi dishes I have ever tasted! The gnocchi was crispy ok the outside and soft on the inside, the outer layer remained crispy even after being drenched in the beef ragout. The gnocchi was not overly starchy too. The beef ragout has a deep flavour and a nice hint of wine and was delicious. Only problem with the dish is that the tomato was slightly acidic for my liking, but overall it was delightful.
Korobuta Pork Ribs ($20)
Fall of the bone ribs with a slight smoky flavour to it. The sauce was generously coated and paired really well. Only downside is the portion is really small.
Carbonara ($22)
Carbonara was cooked al dente and was topped off with bonito flakes. The bonito flakes brought an umami flavour to the pasta and surprisingly paired very well! The chorizo brought a slight spice kick to the dish, overall really yummy!
Chocolate fondant ($10)
3 mini lava cakes all suprisingly had lava! The berries brought a nice fresh tartness to the dish and the crumble sort of sand also brought a nice texture to the dish. The yuzu sorbet was the highlight of the dish, it was sharp but not overpowering and it was so refreshing! My only problem with the lava cake is the chocolate flavour did not shine through enough.
Food was delicious and really lived up to my high expectations of it! Only problem is that the wait was really Long and that the portion size for the meats were small, but the food was amazing
