Overall Impression: 8/10
The smoked salmon was fresh, the ricotta was creamy and the egg was perfectly poached. The creamy runny egg yolk complemented the salty smoked salmon and the whole dish was brought together by the beetroot infused hollandaise.
The lamb shanks were the highlight of our afternoon, combining flawless texture with superlative flavours. Superbly slow braised, the tender meat of the lamb shanks fell delicately off the bone. The subtle pistachio crumble and the mild Persian fetta melded stunningly with the dreamy mash and jus.
This dish wantonly disregards the current trend toward healthy eating and, as a result, is decadently delicious. The light hot cakes are drizzled with maple syrup and adorned with thickly cut slices of candied pork belly - a dish best reserved for a special occasion.
