I haven't seen Miss A for awhile and organised a catch up over dinner (as usual). Waqu is the restaurant which we have been talking about and will visit there one day. This "one day" has arrived and Miss A arranged the booking for us.
Waqu Spring MenuThe restaurant offers six course tasting menu. We will only need to choose which entree and main. Since we have four people and only three choices, we choose all three choices to share among ourselves.
Japanese Salt and Pepper squid and chicken, dashi Mayonnaise; Tiger Prawn Escabeche on Miso Paint with Crusted RosemaryOnce the waitress has taken our orders, the drinks have been served, the amuse arrives. I prefer the salt and pepper squid and chicken over the tiger prawn escabeche. This is the first time I like squid and chicken over tiger prawn!!
Spring Vegetable Soup
Then comes the soup. When we had our first spoonful, we are exclaimed cold? Did they forget to heat it up before serving it to us? Despite it is cold, this soup is quite refreshing and I can feel it is spring. :)
Three Kinds of Market Fish Sashimi, umami soy sauceMy favourite sashimi. I thought there should be nothing wrong with this one? But yes all good. :)
Onsen Tamago + Foie Gras ParfaitNow it is our entree. I have ordered the Onsen Tamago + Foie Gras Parfait. The onsen egg is really smooth and runny. The vegetables are crunchy and fresh.
Scallop & Crab Mousse
Roasted Duck + Smoked Oyster SaladThe other choices of the entree are Scallop + Crab Mousse and Roasted Duck + Smoked Oyster Salad.
Wagyu BeefI have ordered the Wagyu Beef as main. Although I am not a big fan of the wagyu, the other choice of the day is either barramundi or pork with ginger, which I do not like to eat at all. Their wagyu beef is really tender and cook to perfection. I enjoyed it very much.
Panfried barramundi, yuzu emulusion, nori seaweed paint, chamame mash potato
Miss D90 said the best part of this place is the nori seaweed paint.
65 c cooked pork loin + roasted rib, ginger jus, apple puree, braised bamboo, sauteed shiitake & zucchini
Never thought of pork can be served in so pink colour. Thought it has not been cooked well. I guess it is similar to the colour of ham?
Finally finishes off with dessert. Tonight our dessert is strawberry based and most of the pieces are in pink.
Strawberry Mousse, Macaroon, Pink Pepper Puree, Strawberry Jelly, Cheese Ice Cream
Although the meal might not be fantastic, but with great company that what's matter most!
