My designer glasses got put on when I noticed the gorgeous illustrations on the menu. Plus, really nice to get a sense of what you’ll be getting, without looking like a touristic restaurant in the east.
Hai! Oh Yes! I ordered two baos, one being with baked celeriac and the other pork belly, and they where both equally amazing. Creamy and filled with umami, and a lot of crunch thanks to the toppings. Yum!
Aaah, seared scallops. Couldn’t resist the order this one in. Very nice contrast after the indulgent baos.
The broiled salmon tatami looked nice - except the worryingly big pile of creme by its side. When I see too much of something like mayo, I often fear it’s to make up for the lack of taste in the other components. Unfortunately this was the case, except not only was the salmon plain, but the miso creme too..
Now isn’t that the world’s cutest bowl of ramen? I didn’t have a chance to taste this one myself, but it certainly looks appealing 😍
I had to try something that felt a bit off the books, so this carrot dish caught my interest. I turned out to be the perfect end, with loads tanginess from the fermented carrots and pickles. In combination with the brothy tea it lifted the umami in this vegetable-only dish. I would say it beat the salmon by miles.
