Firstly, let's talk about the Scot Free Salmon (images below) and how we were totally blown away by it. The presentation, interaction and of course the taste. When it was first placed on the table, the fog from the dry ice blurred the food inside the glass dome. Subtle mystery? We crave that!

Mystery revealed! Just look at that colours! Stunning! It consist of beetroot & thyme cured salmon with potato gratin, asparagus, candy strips beets, olive soil, squid ink feta, beetroot mousse and fruit cavia. The potato gratin is Jeany's absolute favourite especially when she put a bit of the beetroot mousse or the squid ink whipped feta. We love the food journey, every step of it. It was a true gastronomic experience.

The other dish will be the Soba Daikon. This dish consist of confit duck breast with green tea soba noodles, pearls mushrooms, asparagus & fried egg. We love that the house made daikon broth is served on a unique kettle ; Darwin don't like his noodle soggy and he only poured according to his preference. The broth really compliments the soba and the confit duck is just so tender and savoury; love the runny eggs!
