The portion was quite big, it filled us up quickly! The charred parts of the cauli was extra flavourful, and the dish had varying textures - soft cauli, crunchy couscous, and some parts of the Manchego cheese were crisp. The Serrano ham was slightly too salty and they gave quite a lot of it, so I found it a bit much. This dish was quite light and palatable overall, I’m satisfied!

Really enjoyed the sweet corn sauce in this, it was like a puree of very naturally sweet corn. There were also Peruvian corn kernels, which gave a crunch factor. Octopus was nicely grilled, it was soft and chewy - not rubbery at all.

The sauce in this (it says “fine herbs yogurt” on the menu) was D E L I C I O U S, we wiped the plate clean! It wasn’t very herbaceous/“green” tasting, and even though a yogurt sauce may sound a bit thick and cloying, it was well-balanced by the cider vinegar, which lent a sweet & sour flavour. The grilled sucrine lettuce was soft yet still crunchy (sounds confusing but you should try it for yourself, idk how else to describe it) and naturally sweet, with a nice char on top. The macadamia nuts were chunky, kinda has the same role as pine nuts in pesto sauce. We really liked this dish - every component made sense and came together very nicely! My dining partner felt it was the best dish we had here, and it was in my top 3 (only because I couldn’t choose which of the 3 should be #1 LOL).

The creamy eggs and tender potatoes came together in a very tasty, well balanced Spanish omelette. It came atop a very crunchy crostini-like thing. Enjoyed this!

Definitely get this! It smelt so good. The skin was crisp, somewhat like a thinner version of siew yoke skin. The meat was so tender and juicy, there’s a nice bite to it and wasn’t tough. Pork jowl can sometimes taste overly fatty but this one was really really nice, the fats melted into the lean parts perfectly - might be the best pork jowl I’ve had thus far. The sauce had a wonderful depth of flavour, and went very well with the pork jowl. The crunchy pickled pears acted as a contrasting component, and I thought they were decent but my dining partner didn’t really like it. Still, this dish was easily one of our top 3 dishes.

Somewhat reminiscent of a cruffin! Delicately buttery with none of that greasiness, this was very fragrant. The exterior was crisp, insides were flaky. Wasn’t a fan of the paprika butter, but I would still recommend this as the bread alone is worth ordering :)

These were plush and creamy but not cloying, maybe because they were bite sized so it was just nice. Rather crisp and well filled, plus it was still hot when biting into it! Worth a try, but in comparison to their other amazing dishes this was alright, not to say I didn’t like it tho!

Didn’t have this because I’m not a big fan of oysters, but my dining partner says this:

The sauce sealed the deal - it doesn’t make your mouth pucker. Good balance of flavours! Oyster was fresh.

Okay this was wonderful. The cheese bread (a pao de queijo, if I’m not wrong) had such great texture. There’s a very thin and crisp layer on the outside. Biting into it reveals a warm, cheesy and chewy interior - kinda like mochi bread. These were great on their own, but dipping them into the comte (cheese) cream is a good choice as well. The comte cream was fairly light, and the cheese on cheese combi surprisingly did not feel overwhelming / jelat. I can see why many people recommended this, and I would definitely get this again on my next visit!

The fish was not bad - I liked how crunchy the batter was, without feeling greasy. (My bf says that it was slightly joosy, seasoned nicely.) The chips had some skin on, which I usually like, but these didn’t have the super crisp exterior, plush & fluffy interior thing going on - I had expected better chips. The tartare sauce though, was really good. There was dill (I think) and maybe some other additions, which really elevated the sauce and we both enjoyed it very much. The peas were also unexpectedly delicious! Texture was great, neither mushy nor hard. Think it’s one of the best, if not the best peas I’ve had.

This was surprising! I don’t really like the taste of beetroot, but with this being a tarte tartin, the beety taste was masked. Not sure if the sweetness was due to the caramelisation + natural sweetness of the beets, or just the sugar added when making the dish. Either way, it was delish! The puff pastry did get soggy after a while, due to the juices. The king salmon rillette paired well, and the salad with a sour dressing rounded off the dish nicely. It’s something I’ll try once, and while I did like it, I probably would not order this again - I’ll like to try something different.

This came with babaganoush, basil and dukkah. Felt this was the weakest dish out of everything. Had wanted to get the eggplant, but it’s no longer on the menu. The zucchini tasted very average, not that it was bad but it was nothing to shout about. Preferred the babaganoush over the zucchini, but wouldn’t order this again the next time I’m here!
