Marque Prix Fixe
We have a choice of prix fixe or a la carte. May be the a la carte menu is a lot larger and bolder than the fixed price menu, we have once thought to go for the a la carte! However, we ended up stick with our decision to come here for the fixed price menu!
The amuse-bouche is beautifully crafted. Why I said that? It is because the chef has cut open the egg shell!!
Salted Cod Soup with Mullet Roe
It then followed with our entree. I personally found it was a bit salty. Chef Sam said may be they have used the salted cod?
Roasted Flank Steak with Toffeed Tuscan Red & Potato
The main is flank steak. It is juicy and tender. It is to my surprise for such a quality of the beef can be so wonderful! I must also mentioned that the variety of form and shape of potatoes on this dish is brilliant. At first, I thought the flat sheet is pasta. When I tasted it, the texture is so...... CRISPY and I have to ask the waiter what is it? It is such a surprise!!!
Before the dessert, the caramelised creme... it's so... SMOOTH. It just melted in your mouth!
We did not have much expectation on Apple Crumble, such an ordinary dish. When the waiter brought out the crumble, we thought what is this? Where is the apple crumble? This is surely the highlight of the meal!
Inside the Apple Crumble
The outer layer of white chocolate covered the apple mousse and the crumble is surrounded the "bomb".
What a meal, full of surprises! No wonder Mark Best is awarded as the Chef of the Year by SMH Good Food Guide 2010. He has creativity and heart to his food.
