iceberg, pink grapefruit, asparagus mint
Ticking them off one by one, next up - Golden Fields. A little hit & miss this time, the sashimi was fantastic, as were the old favourites - the lobster roll & the twice cooked duck.
new england lobster roll - hot buttered bun, cold poached crayfish, watercress & kewpie
As good as I remembered it.
kingfish, salmon roe, scud chilli, ginger & lime
Fresh kingfish with bursts of roe & zingy lime, heat from the scud chilli slivers & ginger.
szechuan pepper steak tartare & preserved mustard stem
Still holding the record for one of the best tartares I’ve had, I couldn’t go past the new tartare, a special. Disappontingly on the sinewy side. Rice paper crackers with flecks of black sesame, broken for texture.
rolled pork belly, white kimchi, yuxiang sauce
Soft pork belly rolls.
tuna, oyster cream, pickled shiitake
Gorgeously dark pink, the tuna, like the kingfish was silky & fresh, takes on a richer creamier feel.
diamond shell clams, xo
With a squeeze of lemon, a little tough.
twice cooked duck, steamed bread, vinegar & plum sauce // house made kimchi
A dark golden crispy coat reveals tender duck, with rows of steamed buns. Like the lobster roll, it hadn’t changed and I hope it never will.
