Last evening I posted about this Father's Day Meal that was modern, yet it satisfied the whole family with local and Asian flavours that we are familiar with. This post shows the close up photos of the dishes, and I'll talk about some of the notable ones.
🔸
(Cover Photo) VU’s Seafood Platter - Outstanding. I liked the grilled smokiness of the prawns, and the sweetness in the white butter sauce due to the use of fish bones. Fresh seafood in a creamy sauce that didn't feel overly rich.
🔸
(Second Photo) Hamachi Sashimi. No wasabi, and it was not necessary. Instead, it's refreshed by pomelo, and kaffir lime in the shoyu dressing. Fresh buttery flavours of hamachi with these citrus elements to refresh it. And it was the prettiest dish of the lot, having travelled well in ice-insulated packs for delivery.
🔸
(Third Photo) Grilled Octopus. While it sounds funky with pineapple gohujang sauce, the taste is actually familiar and something close to our hearts. To me, it's like the sweet and sour sauce in our "ko lo yok", with nuances of innovative flavours. Love it.
🔸
(Fourth Photo) Spiced Duck Breast. Cooked medium rare with pink centre, it's like a French dish but layered heavily with Asian influences such as yogurt pesto cucumber to refresh the rich peanut poultry jus served with the duck.
