The Sharing House
35 Dukes Walk
Really liking what I saw at Henry & the Fox, I was most intrigued by both Akachochin and The Sharing House, even more so after my night out at Akachochin. The same marble tops you find at Akachochin, it’s slightly sleek yet has a more relaxed feel about it with the bright multi-colored lego blocks adorning the counter base.
Gravlax - Ocean Trout Cured with Apple Vodka, Textures of Apple & Mustard Creme Fraiche ($12)
A simple cold starter, smooth smoked ocean trout with the complementing sweetness and textures of compressed apple, freeze dried apple and apple jelly, and a little crunch.
Rabbit & Cauliflower Popcorn - Confit Rabbit & Cauliflower, in a Parmesan Breadcrumb, served with Roasted Garlic Aioli ($12)
It’s a mixed bag, some bits are sizeable with warm tender confit rabbit within the light breadcrumb, others are made up of soft cauliflower, or both.
Porcini & Roasted King Brown Mushrooms, Farmhouse Goats Cheese & Fresh Lemon Thyme ($13)
I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m quite reluctant to order pizzas after being quite spoilt by Tazio’s Della Mare. But this mini pizza was topped with sweet juicy mushrooms, musky fragrant goat’s cheese and positively fragrant with thyme on a lovely crusty base.
Spag Bol - 24 Hour Slow Braised Osso Bucco with Fresh Tagliatelle ($15)
The pasta had a nice bite but the dish was a little underseasoned and the osso bucco was a little dry.
Duck a L’orange - Duck Breast Prosciutto wrapped around Confit Duck Leg & Crispy Sprout Salad ($24)
The duck breast was tender and pink with a thin crisp skin, with the confit leg noticeably drier.
The Ice Cream Man - (L-R) Vanilla Bean, Pistachio, Cocoa Nib, Pedro Ximenez, Mint Choc Chip, Wild Strawberry & Limoncello ($14)
Dainty samplings of cold creamery, with crisp wafer cones.
I wasn’t entirely convinced by the Sharing House but the porcini pizza is likely to entice a return visit to try a few more of the other dishes that they had on the menu to be sure.
