king fish & prosciutto

#1 king fish & prosciutto

this a brent savage dish..chef explained that in line with the restaurant focus salted & hung, we have cured king fish which was brined in salt & sugar.

(i did curing with salmon belly before twice, very nice but a bit worried about food safety so did not do after.

looking at the photos, that was 2 years ago already in jul2014).

the combination of flavours was very good. i liked the prosciutto very flavourful. the cured kingfish was ok but nothing special. the cucumber flower & dressing etc went quite well. a good starter certainly, not overwhelming.

raw scallop

combined well with the salty nori (seawwed) & there were some crunchy beans.

wife so so with egg yolk generally. for me, i enjoyed it.

the salted duck was also a very pleasant surprise.

a very tasty dish, very tender & flavourful duck, very nicely brined & sous vided.

& the comte cheese added to the flavours. enjoyed this less common preparation very much.

i am thinking to experiment & try making this dish.

i do an awesome tea smoked duck breast. can vary a bit & try this salted duck. i guess most difficulty is in creating the sauce?

#5 blackmore wagyu flank 9+

#5 blackmore wagyu flank 9+

the blackmore wagyu 9+ marbling score flank steak was excellent.

according to the grill chef, they browned it first, then smoked of 1/2hr to 1hr in a smoker, then sous vided & finally grilled.

he explained that they try to get the secondary cuts so can offer less expensive choices to diners, and also it offers more culinary challenge to make a good steak from a lesser cut.

a very enjoyable steak, perfectly charred, very intense flavourful & tender meat.

it was not the japanese wagyu class of marbling melt-in-the-mouth flavourful, but a smooth, intense, beefy flavourful. a really excellent steak for me!

#6 mangosteen, bickwheat soil, sorbet

and i enjoyed the dessert as well.

#6 mangosteen, buckwheat soil, sorbet

wife & i not really dessert persons. wife still not particularly impressed.

for me it was quite a superb combination of texture & flavours, milding sweet & tangy as well, and with crunchy bits, almonds, buckwheat soil etc.

it was really quite fun to watch the chef at work. they were well organised & orderly, & served out the dishes unhurried & in good time.

& gave some personal attention time also for some chats & exchanges.

overall when i first looked at the salted & hung menu & the lewin terrace menu i was naturally more sold on the kagoshima wagyu sirloin vs a blackmore 9+ wagyu flank.

as it turned out i liked every course in this menu. & the overall dining experience was superb, maybe lewin terrace already a memory, maybe it’s dining with my wife this evening, but this dinner was very enjoyable indeed.
