The restaurant was known for its modern Australian cuisine, and located in Chijmes. Service was swift and smooth. I was shown to a sofa seat table with cushion around. Looking at the menu, I decided on the 3-course lunch set ($64++).The meal started with an amuse-bouche which was the chef's version of the korean bibimbap. It consisted of nori cream made with creme fraiche and nori, compressed cucmber sphere, cured trout roe, chrysanthemum petals, puffed wild rice, toasted nori, cherry bell radis
Roasted Mangalica pork jowl, sea scallop xo, braised wombok, land seaweed
Interestingly the scallop was flattened into translucent silky sheet, which looked similar to Liang fen 涼粉, but it still retained the scallop's seafood taste. The chinese cabbage was braised in a milky creamy sauce. The pork was fork tender and flavourful.
Line caught red seabream, sago porridge, fermented celeriac, young herbs, umami butter
The dish was prettily served topped with cucumber's flowers. The sago porridge sat on a pool of herb oil, topped with the fish. The sago porridge was creamy and crunchy with vegetables in it. It smelt umami when served.
Australian berries, young coconut mousse, lychee granita, dried milk
The mousse was light not too sweet, which was quite balance with the slightly tart berries. The meal ended with a serving of petite four which consisted of a macaron and a tart with crispy noodle like base.
I also ordered a cup of latte ($7++) to go with it.
Overall the food was delicious and unique in its own way.
