We were invited to the opening and appended below are some of the dishes that we got to try. These were presented in bite size portions.

 

 

Braised Beef Cheek (actual portion $36++)

Marinated for at least 8 hours, then slow braised in red and port wine. It was extremely tender and alittle sweet. Comes with mashed mousseline Idaho potato and roasted root vegetables. Beef and mash, a classic and perfect combination.

Chargrilled Lamb ($36++)

Lamb chops were chargrilled. Chef Kenny concocted a special sauce for this dish. Instead of the common  mint jelly, prune juice mixed with bell pepper and lemon provided that bit of zesty mouthfeel. The lamb chops does not have the gamey aftertone due to this citrussy flavors.

Garlic Prawns

Prawns were sweet. Not overpowered by the garlic but still had that garlicky balanced aftertone.

Botanic Zest ($15++)

Inspired by all things botanical, this cocktail meets east and west. A mix of Roku gin, juniper berries, line, fresh young julienned ginger infused with honey. Sparkling tonic water was added for that fizzy finish. Quite a light refreshing cocktail.
