Luckily for me… the main dish was to be Roast Chicken (otherwise, I would not have been able to eat)…
We were encouraged to tear the bread with our hands and enjoy!
Next, we were served a beautiful salad of cous cous, quails egg, polenta, lettuce leaves, purple potatoes and pork belly (deep fried!)
This was the creamiest and melt in your mouth pork belly that I’ve had in a while…
And what a dessert it was!
Rhubarb and apple tart served with chantilly cream and poached rhubarb
Service was really good… the overall setting of the restaurant was laid back and casual (not unlike Attica).. but I don’t want to compare…
We are definitely going to make a return… (twice at least… one for the ala carte experience and another for the degustation experience).
I wonder if they will think I’m mad to request a table that I sat in (it was directly under the light and the pictures turned out fantastically!)
Don’t you think?
At the end of our meal as well, Chef Nic came out and smiled at us!! Wheeeeee… I love it when chefs come out at the end of the meal…!!!
