100 Gourment March 2019 Edition

At a fine-dinning setting at Basque Kitchen by Aitor, enjoying the 6-course meal beginning with snacks.

Snacks

Anchovy

Tartare & Potato Pancake

Fried Oyster



Ankimo

The first course, Monkfish Liver, labelled as foie gras of the sea was with carrot gel, Yarra Valley trout roe. Among the components, there was vinegar to cut through the pungent fishy flavour. It is a delicacy targeted only for the adventurous, certainly not for a faint-hearted.

Sourdough

I am not a fan of sourdough but enjoyed this one. Soft chewiness is the characteristic of such rustic bread and what I really like about it is the extremely light sourish flavour.

Smoked Trout

Instead of the usual salmon, here Trout was used. The smoother texture from trout with dill on pancake gave a different dimension to the dish. Overall, a simple but delightful item.

Oxtail Bomba Rice

Some love this Braised oxtail, confit quail egg yolk, chive aioli with rice. I didn’t enjoy entirely as it was too sweet for my preference.

Pork

Chewy Pork Neck with Apple and Mustard are such wonderful combination.

Beef Tongue

Before moving to the dessert, the last savoury course was the Beef Tongue, another item with good chewiness. Flavoured with vegetable glaze, thyme oil, forest berries

Chocolate

Round off the meal with a chocolate dessert comprises chocolate sponge, chocolate ice cream and chocolate meringue. The intensity of the chocolate in the 3 elements were different too, lightest was the meringue and strongest from the ice cream.

NAHMJ Verdict

The 100 Gourment March 2019 Edition by Aitor Jeronimo Orive x Chef Oldrich Sahajdak was a memorable dinner with unexpected combination of ingredients.
