Eaten at more than a dozen one, two and three star Michelin Restaurants, and when I see people saying this place deserves a star, I'd really beg to differ.
Chose the tasting menu and it started out okay but went downhill from there.
The chef really scrimped on the key ingredients, which is not something you'd expect if he had any pride.
Foie Gras: overcooked or done with the wrong technique because it destroyed the melty texture. Even duck liver when done properly would retain the melt-in-your-mouth consistency. Dish came with so much pineapple jam underneath, it drowned out the main ingredient completely in proportion and flavour.
The main course of "9 hour" angus beef was two stupendously TINY morsels, and it came with a bowl of mash to what, fill our stomachs?
Dessert was a HUGE bowl of Valrhona Chocolate Soup. Even though it was nice, we found it ridiculous that a huge bowl of chocolate soufflé type thing was being used to end off the dinner and make us feel full.
The irony is that after that, the petit four came, two lemongrass infused madeleines, one white and one dark chocolate bonbon. We were confused as to how to share or whether to fight over that?
Overall a lousy experience of being ripped off.
