J & my RI bro NCL bought lunch @ terra at 54 tras street today on 23.10.2018. ^^
J arranged the sumptuous lunch..
nice decor and ambience.
chef owner is seita san. Our server is sho san.
terra served only omakase or set lunch, & omakase dinner..
we ordered the $58pax 4-course set, and had to top up $10 for their signature uni pasta..
the foccacia & fungi butter very good..
the pumpkin soup fine presentation but pedestrian in taste.
the hokkaido scallop was excellent.quite exquisite!
scallops was totally tender ad sweet & complemented well by the cheesy, flavourful broth.
i tried a bit of the sanma ceviche…. very good too
uni pasta was very good because of very sweet uni..
as a uni pasta did not really stand out say c/w a good mentaiko pasta..and i think many places can do teh same or better…maybe should have ikura added to the uni pasta..
i asked and sho san replied that the “wagyu” beef was not a graded wagyu. ..we guessing maybe 国产牛..
anyway it was quite excellent- sweet, nice beefy taste, smooth & tender
dessert was tiramisu..light nice not too sweet perfectly competent tiramisu.
the birthday cake/dessert decor was interesting.
the candle sat on a wine cork, which looked like a man sitting down. lol! 🙂
there was a birthday chime too!
Thanks to my friends J & NCL for the excellent lunch, and great chat & sharing.
NCL was going for his kilimanjaro expedition, we were all happy and full of goodwill & support for his successful summiting of the tallest peak in africa.
