Demitasse of fresh mushroom cappuccino
Lunch started with the demitasse of fresh mushroom cappuccino, topped with foam and served in tiny china cups. The soup itself had an intense mix of flavour and was deeply satisfying. I loved it.
Slow cooked organic egg
with artichoke puree and foie gras emulsion
The egg was creamy-rich, circled by the smooth and luxurious emulsion and dotted with truffle oil. So delicate yet so robust, the flavours were in harmony with one another. Definitely a dish to remember. Dammit, now I’m salivating.
Australian Lamb Cutlet
Wok fried julienne of vegetables and tapenade jus
For my main course, I opted for the Australian Lamb Cutlet — two sizeable pieces, flavoured right to the bone. Seasoned with olive oil, herbs and butter, the meat was grilled, and then slow cooked in the oven using a thermal circulator. Possibly the best (and juiciest) lamb cutlet I’ve eaten.
Oriental Seafood Fried Rice “Mui Fan”
Egg fried rice with asparagus, grouper fillets, prawns and scallop
Oriental Seafood Fried Rice “Mui Fan” didn’t taste or look like fried rice to me. I expected it to be full of wok hei and dotted with charred crispy bits, but JQ’s version was more like a “mun fan” (braised rice). The broth was clear but sweet from the seafood. Tasty, but not my kind of dish.
Jackfruit Tart with Crumble
Crème anglaise and Acacia honey ice cream
Dessert was jackfruit tart with crème anglaise and Acacia honey ice cream. Jackfruit has a bold flavour, but this dessert spotted mild undertones of the fruit. The ice cream had a hint of floral note and paired well with the tart.
Among the dishes I ate, the mushroom cappuccino and organic egg left a lasting impression. Simple, yet so delicious.
