Food. Cocktail. Wine List.
Camellia: Silver needle white tea vodka, bergamot, seville & valencia orange, bitters
Toorima’s cocktail choice of the night! Though the glass was not close to me, I could smell the aroma of his drink!
Very nice! & according to him towards the bottom of the glass, is a very strong taste of tea.
Shrimp Toast: rock shrimp, cilantro, chiles, tiny croutons
The talk around the table landed on the banana leaf more than the fried shrimp ball.
The dish was okay.
Baby Monterey Squid: chiang mai pork sausage, candlenut, mint, rau ram
Interesting dish, seems like the chef likes this sauce.
Chicken Lemongrass Dumpling Soup: superior broth, pea sprouts, 63″ egg
The most disappointing dish of the night. It was filled with lots of pepper and the veggie was a little too raw.
Duck Popiah: cilantro stems, pickled jicama, house-made hoisin chile sauce
This fusion duck roll was better than I thought it would be.
Spicy Chicken Pops: shelton farms’ drumettes, garlic, kecap manis, spicy sichuan salt
This dish was pretty good, sweet and spicy. The outside of it was crispy but the inside was very soft and tender.
The combination of the texture and taste was superb.
Foie Gras Ganache: carob, ceylon cinnamon, tamarind gastrique, almond, puffed rice
There were mixed thoughts on this dish: from unbearable to delicious.
It’s not the normal foie gras you eat – tasting more like pate (better as a spread)
It’s a bit on the salty side and bread would have been a great complement to this dish.
Whole Steamed Fish
The stomache area tasted a little fishy, but overall it tasted good.
Heifloom Black Rice: lap cheong, onion, roasted garlic, lilly’s farm fried egg
The wifey was a little hesitant to try this dish. It was too oily, but the taste was a passing grade.
Yu Choy Sum: aged ham, shaoxing wine, garlic
Nothing special, but we need the veggies!
Sonoma Lamb Chops: market spices, lamb chops
This view makes the lamp chops look very plain, covered with herbs c ooked medium rare.
A very good “main course”
Chiang Mai Curry Noodles: yellow curry, lemongrass, pork belly, prawn, rice noodles
Surprised to see that with all the dishes, this one created the most interest.
Good flavor, and a little sour taste adding the Thai culture to it.
2 – passion fruit jello, Tapioca with Coconut, & kiwi
2 – yuzu sorbet with a pudding (The wifey enjoyed this complimentary dessert)
1 – pistachio sorbet with dark chocolate mousse
$52 a person (for 5), not bad. Try a little bit of everything.
The Satisfied Wifey.
